To upgrade: If you are running any 6.4 or later release, click 'Check for Updates' on the Tools/Update OS page. If you are running a pre-6.4 release, click 'Check for Updates' on the Plugins

Since you... "had a devil of a time deciding whether to simply update to the 4.19 kernel now..." 6.6.6 was the version number that came to mind?   🤣😎   As an FYI, I was able to upgrade both

It's safe after 666 days from release....

Can you post a screenshot of your disk settings page?

 

Green color = disk utilization below warning level

Orange color = disk utilization between warning and critical level

Red color = disk utilization above critical level

Let's be real, Unraid moves fast now.

No more LTS for us :)

"support", as in linux kernel longterm support, means they will back-merge bug fixes only.  With rare exceptions, no new device support, not even new PCI ID's for device which use the same driver as existing devices.  Also, in the past I've been concerned about btrfs development - the line between a "bug fix" which will get back-ported and "improvement", which is not back-ported, is has not been that well defined.  Meaning, some "fixes" required more code changes than developers were comfortable about trying to back-port.  These days, I think that has largely settled down.

 

Bottom line is that we need to try and keep up-to-date with kernels in order to support the latest hardware.  Very likely Unraid 6.7.0-rc1 will be released with 4.19 kernel, but possible we move to 4.20 kernel before 6.7 stable is released.

It appears almost all the file system work is done on whatever the current mainline is.

 

At least the change logs I have read for every release in the past few months.

 

I only see bug fixes go back toward the LTS. 

 

Most of the performance and new features added to Btrfs are only in the next mainline, not backported to previous LTS release.

 

Example:

http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1810.2/05630.html

 

Again. You guys are moving fast to patch security and microcode.

 

Very happy but loud end user here :)

 

PS. New AMD stuff always needs latest kernel's now-a days.

Wait until people buy upcoming 64 core machines for Unraid/docker setups. Inform Linus his video looks weak now and he needs to do a new all NVME SSD unraid video :)

Disk settings attached.

 

70% does explain orange on disk17 (my second screenshot), I see. Main tab is reasonable. But what about the red disk19 and Cache disk on the Dashboard (first screenshot)?

Try the following:

Go to Main -> Disk 19 -> Settings

Make a settings change (e.g. change warning level) and undo this change. It will allow settings to be saved.

Check if there is a difference in display.

Yes, that worked. Colors on Dashboard are correct now.

 

Can you please elaborate a little bit. Is this a bug or WAD?

upgraded process on the ml30 g9 occurred without issue.

 

This is kind of nice:

 

 

 

I mean, it's not as nice as multiple cache pools....but it's still nice.

Is this the Dashboard??? And where comes the color from?

EDIT: Ah, i see... the color comes automaticly 😉

EDIT2: Would be nice if the gray bar could be green 👍

Upgrade not successful. I currently have 6.5.3, but i can't upgrade to anything higher than that. System just reboots after saying "BZRoot.......OK".

Starting in GUI Safe mode works, but nothing else does.

 

What i have tried:

Update BIOS

Different BIOS UEFI settings

Updating syslinux.exe

Adding acpi=off nolapic noapic to the syslinux.cfg

Different USB drive

Both 6.6.0 RC4 and 6.6.6

 

Don't know what to do next. 😕

 

My Specs are in the signature.

what the hell were you doing at that time? pretty big numbers on each core.

and how to set the display of the core usage to these small line bars?

 

I was compiling the hp proliant bzimage while running my pfsense firewall, and hosting an external facing cloud. It's usually not that active. Usually runs between 10-30%

 

I'm using one of the baked in themes.
