  1. (Solved) Parity 2 errors

    Thanks Johnnie. I know that temp reading was from a while ago before I swapped out fans in case. Will swap out cable and plug into other port on m/b.
  2. My second parity drive states 1152 errors. Log file on that drive :(just a snippet) Feb 9 05:15:25 Tower kernel: print_req_error: I/O error, dev sdm, sector 13747642944 Feb 9 05:15:25 Tower kernel: sd 11:0:1:0: [sdm] tag#0 UNKNOWN(0x2003) Result: hostbyte=0x00 driverbyte=0x08 Feb 9 05:15:25 Tower kernel: sd 11:0:1:0: [sdm] tag#0 Sense Key : 0x2 [current] Feb 9 05:15:25 Tower kernel: sd 11:0:1:0: [sdm] tag#0 ASC=0x4 ASCQ=0x0 Feb 9 05:15:25 Tower kernel: sd 11:0:1:0: [sdm] tag#0 CDB: opcode=0x88 88 00 00 00 00 03 33 6c 66 40 00 00 04 00 00 00 Feb 9 05:15:25 Tower kernel: print_req_error: I/O error, dev sdm, sector 13747643968 Extended smart report came back fine. Can i un assign the drive and re assign and let parity rebuild? smart-20180212-0534.zip
  3. What Router are you Running?

    Have read through most of manual but just wondering if others have had any problems with it? I know that on some of these routers the lan ports are not gig bandwidth and this one does seem to support that.
  4. What Router are you Running?

    On the topic of routers, is anyone familiar with the Cisco Small Business RV325-K9-NA Dual Gigabit WAN ? I am thinking of trying this only because I would like to split the office and the home internet from the cable modem in office. Would save me from getting a switch since it has 14 lan ports on it already. Any feed back is appreciateed. Thanks
  5. Thanks you for that. I will play around with the pinning cores after work and see if it helps.
  6. I am wondering about which setting will improve my play back of media during an unpack or during plex streaming? During an un pack, if I am watching any media from my Unraid server, the play back will stop and buffer or will become jerky. I also notice this when someone starts a stream on my plex server. I have my unpacking media going start to the array but wonder if storing them on the cache drive would help? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  7. I bought 2 of these also but looked on bottom of box to see where it was made. Took the ones from Thailand but noticed that there were China made ones also on the same shelf. Both mine are the red labels.

  9. [Support] Linuxserver.io - Plex Media Server

    I only have a plex server up for my family to access it from outside my lan and for when I am on a road trip and want something to watch. Otherwise I use Kodi solely for all my media. I like the presentation on my large screen with all the art work etc..
  10. [Support] Linuxserver.io - Plex Media Server

    I probably jumped to a misunderstood conclusion on that. Yes it was running in RAM (even though memory usage never went up, only CPU usage).I would post a screen shot again but at the moment rebuilding a drive. I understand that Unraid once booted runs in RAM. Once I had the setting for plex and the container set. Host path /tmp and container path :/transcode . I restarted docker. Later that night got a phone call from sister asking why plex on her roku kept crashing back to the home screen once she started a stream. Thought that was odd and since plex was running for her with out a problem before, I could only come to the conclusion that it was the settings I had done in the morning to the container.I open the web gui for plex and see her stream as paused and my nephews stream as direct with no converting. My cpu is pegged at 100% and memory usage is stable at 20%. I then go into editing the container for plex to check those settings i put in. While all the streams are still active and I am in the edit for the host path which is just /tmp, clicking on that box will bring a drop down showing what seemed to be the contents of my flash drive. But looking back now probably was just the tmp ram directory.I could see the transcode folder and streams inside that. So I just assumed at that point it was holding that /tmp on flash drive, which at the time made sense to me with the cpu usage and what plex was doing on the clients end. With over 5 gig in sessions from the transcode folder and if the flash drive was dishing that out I could understand the problems clients were having.(This was all my thinking at this time). Mapping the host path inside the cache folder solved all these problems with my family's plex outside my lan. This is how i came to the conclusion that the /tmp doesn't work for me unless I map that tmp to a folder.
  11. [Support] Linuxserver.io - Plex Media Server

    Yes I did see the /tmp/transcode folder and inside the sessions folder for each stream. with my cpu pegged at 100%. To me it makes no difference since I stream everything from my Unraid server on lan to Kodi, but for the few family members that have outside access to my plex server those transcode setting made their viewing horrible. So I converted back to the cache directory(SSD) for transcoding for them. Their feed back said that the viewing now is flawless. This was basically an experiment within the last 2 weeks if I could make plex better for them and RAM transcoding was a fail, as far as I am concerned.
  12. [Support] Linuxserver.io - Plex Media Server

    Yes I did. My docker looks like this. Inside the plex setting.
  13. [Support] Linuxserver.io - Plex Media Server

    I agree with you and was expecting to see my ram usage going up with that setting (/tmp) but it did not but what I saw was a tmp folder created on flash drive and a trans-code folder created inside that. So that lead me to map that /tmp to my cache drive inside. So I have to think that trans-coding on RAM is not working on my end.
  14. [Support] Linuxserver.io - Plex Media Server

    I had tried this also (mapped the /transcode folder to /tmp) and what I had found out from my sister that has access to my plex server was that the stream she was watching was really bad. Bad meaning that playing the file would cause the video to buffer every 5-10 secs. I could see that the trans-coding was going on using with my server because all my cores were pegged at 100%. I do believe that /tmp if not mapped to anything it will then default to the flash drive. Those with more knowledge please correct me if this is wrong. Anyway I mapped a tmp folder to my appdata folder on my cache drive (ssd). My sister tried again and I could see under the /mnt/user/appdata/tmp/transcode folder that a new folder was created called sessions. Opening that folder up I could see the trans-coded files being delivered for the stream. Now my sister tells me that the file plays wonderful and all is good. On my end I no longer see a 100% CPU usage throughout the trans-coding operation . Thought I would give my thoughts on the subject.
  15. Tried running extended smart test but gets interrupted by host reset. I have an extra open slot on another 5x3 cage that I will swap that drive into and try extended test again. 11/24/2017 Update on this: The one data drive is indeed toast. Replaced with a new 8tb drive and am running a parity sync/Data-rebuild now.
