    [Support] Djoss - dupeGuru

    I think its utilizing the excess RAM it cant find. and I am not using all my available RAM. But it is only a theory.

    To be honest after 5 days I used another solution. But yes I know I had a lot of duplicates both in number of files (200.000+) and in amount of GB (200gb+) But still I love the docker. thank you for making this possible.

    4+ port NIC that can properly be separated in iommu?

    I have a 4port NIC as well, I know that mine has 2 NIC controllers. So I think it is 1 IOMMU group per controller. It sounds like your card has the same design.

    I don't know if this is the right forum. I have tried this docker app, yet it halt at "Almost done! Fiddling with the results..." I gave it some time, then some more time. It is now day 3 and it is still "fiddling". In "netdata" (another docker app) I can see the dupeguru at this moment is using between 10 and 15% CPU (out of 24 cores) and 81GB RAM (out of 144GB) but NO disk activity. So it does looks like it is doing something. Does anyone know if this is normal behavior?

    4 port intel nic problem!

    As Johnnie writes, use the GUI mode to configure, as the new NIC may be initialized before the onboard/other NIC. Therefore gets the eth0.

    Call Traces found on your server

    Thanks Squid. and I do not use the onboard video. But how did you find out? (trying to learn here.)
  7. I read that it is recommended to start a new thread so I did. I get the above mentioned error. I have tried to trawl through the files, but I am not able to pinpoint the error. I do see some of my old VM are mentioned in the logs as well as proftpd, that I also deleted. I currently have windows 10 / Windows Server 2012 / pfSense. The rest are deleted. Also I am aware that my RED disks are failing in S.M.A.R.T and is up for replacement when time (read finance) allow it... Just to make sure resource are not wasted Any help is much appreciated. Thank you Teddy
  8. And if you cannot flash it to IT mode you can still use the card. I see two solutions: 1: make a RAID group for each disk, should be possible in theory (I have not tested/proved this) 2: make one or more RAID discs. This one I am using myself for my cache disk.

    VM Gaming Hardware Requirements

    I would take 2 cores and the two HT - giving you 4 Virtual cores total. I also have a GTX 1060 and I feel nor see nor performance loss (though it most likely i there, its just to small for me to notice) I tried with an external GPU via ExpressCard. Not recomended, true it is producing much better results than the internal GPU. but the PCIe x1 lane is not near enough for gaming in my opinion. I have run Stellaris and Path Of Exile on my rig, no problem for me.

    Questions regarding 8tb drives...

    I thought so. Well it is next on my list, to replace the REDs with Ironwolfs. but thank you for your input.

    Questions regarding 8tb drives...

    According to this site, your disk is running 5900RPM. that is a tad faster than 5400RPM. But my logic tells me it should not differ more than 20-30 min. 1 hour tops. It could be my system is discontinued components from an old datacenter, (except the disks). I mean my SATA controllers are only SATAII, yet mb/s wise I should never hit the speed limit of that controller. But there may be instruction in SATAIII that could give a performance boost. But again I can get the math to fit with that big of a time difference. I guess I will see on Monday when the parity will run again if my cache drive will make a difference (just installed it today). I know it will not speed up the process, but I may spare some writes, and that should help on the time, but not much. I save all my photos (I am a part time photograper) on this system, with backup to a local qnap, and also a backup to a long distance qnap. I use the parity to prevent bitrot, yes I know it is not meant for that. But then let us call it "off label use".

    Questions regarding 8tb drives...

    My setup take: Last check completed on Monday, 2018-02-19, 22:08 (two days ago), finding 0 errors. Duration: 23 hours, 8 minutes, 51 seconds. Average speed: 96.0 MB/sec with a mix of Ironwolf from seagate an RED from western digital. How I wish it only took 18H. But In future I plan to replace the REDs with IronWolf. Then it should speed things up. I may even hit that 18H mark. /Alphahelix

    Questions regarding 8tb drives...

    But parity / rebuild will be roughly twice as fast with the 4TB vs 8TB (assuming same mb/sec performance) and with 8TB @ 5400rpm it takes roughly 24H to complete a parity check. Not imperative, yet still a factor I think is worth mentioning.
  15. I know this is a rather old thread. Yet for others having same needs, I would like to give a possible solution for this. If you pass through an USB controller. Not sure if it is possible with one port, as I believe any and every objects in an IOMMU group needs to be passed through, all at once. But if you manage to pass through an USB port you can attach a USB optical drive or just drive to a VM. I cant see why it wouldn't work. As it should not be any different than my setup, where I pass through my keyboard and mouse to my Windows.
