Hi

 

Anyone on here got auto fan controller working on a Dell T20?

Unraid does not detect any PWMs.

The specs  say that the SAS3224 does support SSD, but no mention of TRIM compatibility.  I have opened a support ticket with Broadcom specifically asking if this controller supports SSD's and TRIM.  I'll report back once I get the official answer.

 

I would like to hear from anyone who has this card and has SSD's connected to it, and of course has the TRIM plugin working.

 

 

I submitted a support ticket to Broadcom and after one week - no response.  Not too impressed there.

 

Again - anyone out there running this controller with a SSD drive attached and using this TRIM plugin with success?

 

What is the down side of not running TRIM?  I can leave the SSD drive connected to my 9305, but no TRIM.  It has crashed my sever twice, so I have disabled this plugin.

Not having trim isn't really a huge deal.  It's made out to be a big deal, but it really isn't.  At best, you'll never notice any difference because the controller might do some automatic maintenance at some point anyway.  At worst, you'll see slightly degraded performance sometimes, but not likely anything worth worrying about, either.  Ever since SSDs were a thing, and trim came to be, it has been made out to be something absolutely essential to have.  It really isn't worth worrying about.

 

edit: When they take care of the issue on their own without intervention from the OS it is referred to as garbage collection.  When the OS triggers it, this is a trim command being sent.  Both accomplish the same end.  One just happens automatically at certain intervals without a command having to be sent from the OS.  Really, nobody should be worried about this all that much unless they're actually in some situation where bleeding every single last bit of performance from a drive 24/7 is important.

For those interested.

 

I created a new plugin "Dynamix Day and Night". This plugin automatically toggles between a day theme and a night theme, based on the sunrise and sunset times of your location.

 

Personally I like a bright theme during the day and a dimmed theme during the night, but it is up to the user to select which theme is used during the day or night.

 

See the OT for the URL and manual installation, or wait until it appears under CA.

 

Enjoy.

@aptalca @CHBMB can either of you be a gentleman and a scholar and reboot the appfeed server.   It's not updating.   Damn Gremlins

The Google API is used to translate a street address into geographical coordinates.

The latitude and longitude values are needed to calculate sunrise and sunset times of the given location.

 

The Google API key is free. The API key can be used for multiple services, e.g. it is used by Ubiquiti to show Google maps in their Unifi manager.

Apparently I am stupid then, when I go there, It wants me to setup billing information.

 

Apparently they are not free anymore after 7/16/18

It has been a while since I got my API key, and apparently Google has changed their policy.

 

Here is what they say about pricing: https://cloud.google.com/maps-platform/user-guide/pricing-changes/

 

If there is any other free service to do geographical translations, I am willing to change (or add) said service.

 

Ps. The Google serivce is only called when entering a new address. Once the coordinates are known, they are stored and re-used without the API.

Try using the Search Engine, Duck Duck Go,  to search for     street address to geographical coordinates.  The user might have to use a manual entry method but it should be a one time thing.

Thanks for the pointer. I'll have look.

 

Meanwhile I have added a "geocoding service" selection. Current choices are Google, Bing or MapQuest.

 

For each service you need to register and get an API key. Bing and MapQuest do not ask for billing information unlike Google.

Just had an update for the Cache Dir plugin appear on the plugins tab (although it's dated from April), it's reporting a bad MD5 when I try and update though and it's killed the plugin. I've tried removing and reinstalling both from Community Applications and manually but get the same error.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

My mistake. Files got inadverently changed on github.

 

You need to uninstall and re-install the plugin. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Github may be a bit slow in updating after I pushed the update.

 

Please try again.

There is something weird going on.

When I check github itself it has the correct files, but when I download from the same github location it gives me the wrong file 🙄
