[solved] mover eating cpu usage, locking up plex playback

unraid version: 6.7.2 nvidia (problem has occured in vanilla back into 6.6.x days)

plugins: dynamix cache, ssd trim, stop shell, system buttons, temp.

             nerd tools for perl

             recycle bin


             unassigned devices

hardware: amd 3600 on asus rog b450 -f board 32GB ram lsi sas9211-8i card going to a super micro backplane 846 24-bay unit

This has occured on my old hardware as well which was an intel dual xeon setup. 

I've also swapped lsi cards with an h200 flashed to IT mode with the same results

My cache drive has also changed between 2 SSD's and now an nvme drive 500GB


Problem: When I run mover it locks up my system somewhat. cpu usage spikes around 50% and I cannot get files to load/play correctly in plex until moving stops.

It is highly repeatable regardless if the files I'm trying to watch are on the cache drive or on the array already.


I've not seen any specific errors in the log while mover is running.  This diagnostic is from a fresh restart and me moving mover until completion.


thank you for the help
