  1. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    Yes, it's new for 3204. The 3202 BIOS didn't have an Advanced Tab --> PCI Subsystem Settings menu option. On the page for 3204, the only option at present is "SR-IOV Support". At the bottom of the screen it reads: "If the system has SR-IOV capable PCIe Devices, this option Enables or Disables Single Root IO Virtualization Support." The only options for the menu setting are Enabled or Disabled, with Disabled being the default value. Google offers many links about SR-IOV, here's an example: Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) is a standard developed by the PCI-SIG that works in conjunction with system chipset support for virtualization technologies. SR-IOV enables network traffic to bypass the software switch layer of the Hyper-V virtualization stack to allow SR-IOV capable devices to be assigned directly to a virtual machine. It does this by providing remapping of interrupts and DMA. Link: http://techgenix.com/single-root-io-virtualization/ Not entirely sure what that means in terms of my build, so far the existing feature set meets my needs. I'll have to research SR-IOV in greater detail later.
  2. To the degree that it helps, I'm passing in a USB controller to my Windows 10 VM without needing PCIe ACS Override (anymore), thanks to the latest (3402) BIOS for the ASUS Prime X370-PRO motherboard. Details are in this post from the other Ryzen thread: https://lime-technology.com/forums/topic/55150-anybody-planning-a-ryzen-build/?do=findComment&comment=616916
  3. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    Asus Radeon 6450 1GB (Desktop) Graphics Card, no UEFI as of yet. Sorry, can't help you with the NVIDIA stuff. May I ask what's the pros/cons are to using UEFI, from an unRAID perspective?
  4. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    Upgraded to unRAID 6.4.0 last night. Uptime at present is 12+ hours and counting. I have not touched any C-States or added a "rcu_nocbs" setting. In my build, I'm always running a Windows 10 VM and that seems to keep the system happy enough to not crash. So far I have not tried out the newer 6.4.0 features, but the upgrade to Linux Kernel 4.14.13 fixes the NTP (Nested Page Tables) bug, so now the GPU pass-through performance into my Windows 10 VM is much, much better. For reference, here's more info on the NTP bug: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10027525/ Haven't had too much time to exercise the server, but so far I've not run into any roadblocks or even speed bumps. Knock on wood...
  5. unRAID OS version 6.4.0 Stable Release Available

    Painless upgrade, uptime is 12+ hours on my Ryzen 1800X. I've not dipped into the newer 6.4.0 features, but am enjoying the NTP (Nested Page Tables) fix for better GPU performance in my Windows 10 VM. Thanks for all the efforts!!
  6. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    In general I don't have freezing issues. So long as the Windows 10 VM is running, the server stays happy. I've had uptimes in excess of a month, only ended because I wanted to do the BIOS upgrade. Thanks for the tip, though ... I'll try the latest RC builds once I have a chance to experiment with all the new features on a test system. Regarding your GPU pass-through, I'll attach a screen shot of my working VM with GPU passthrough, as well as a copy of the XML. I'm presently running OVMF, because I thought SeaBios was less advanced? This could be your problem, what happens when you run OVMF? Otherwise, I have no experience with NVIDIA graphics cards, nor dumping BIOS. I figure we should at least be able to get your Radeon GPU running. I'm also not seeing the failure in the SYSLOG that you're seeing, but hopefully that goes away if we can figure this out. Take a look at my attachments and let me know what you think... PS: If it matters, this Windows 10 VM is about 9-10 months old, I think? Win10e.xml
  7. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    Post your build details (CPU, Mobo, RAM, etc.) I have this currently working on my Ryzen 1800X w/ ASUS Prime X370-PRO motherboard. My GPU is only a Radeon 6450 desktop graphics card. Nothing fancy, but the GPU pass-through to my Windows 10 VM works nicely.
  8. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    Over the weekend, I finally got around to upgrading my ASUS Prime X370-PRO motherboard to the latest BIOS (3402). So far, my uptime is 3+ days with no crashes. In general, I have not had a crashing system, primarily because I run a Windows 10 VM all the time with half the cores/threads dedicated to it from my Ryzen 1800X. I guess that's enough to keep the crash/hang problem at bay. The one thing I noticed about BIOS 3402 is the improved IOMMU groupings available. This is what the IOMMU groups look like without the ACS override enabled: IOMMU group 0 [1022:1452] 00:01.0 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

[AMD] Device 1457 Previously, I had to use the ACS override to break up the IOMMU groups so I could properly pass my GPU, sound card and a USB controller in to my Windows 10 VM. With BIOS 3402, I no longer need to do that. Here's a screen shot of my VM pass-through settings. Anyway, just really glad AMD/ASUS are working to address the concerns for us VM users. I know it was mentioned during an AMD AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit (and likely other places) when Ryzen was initially launched. It might take a while, but it's nice to know they are listening, and are willing to put forth the effort to help us solve those problems. PS: In order to take the screen shot, I had to shut down my Window 10 VM. In the ensuing 10 minutes it took me to write this post, the server DID crash (unRAID 6.3.5) ... so BIOS 3402 adds nothing to help prevent crashing. Odd since my kid was watching a movie on the Plex that's a docker on the server. I guess that's just not enough activity? Oh well, hard reboot and parity check. 'Night all!
  9. Ryzen Threadripper Platform Issues

    There's a thread that may be of some value, here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/6vbe6w/threadripper_broken_on_linux_for_pci_passthrough/ Dunno if it's exactly the same issue, or possibly a different issue. The last post was a few hours ago, so near as I can tell, this issue is still open. I haven't justified that I need a Threadripper myself, with the general lack of funds this is unlikely to change anytime in the near future. Still like to monitor the progress of others, so hope this helps!!
  10. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    For ASUS Prime X370-PRO motherboard owners, there appears to be yet another BIOS update available. Version 0810 (Dated 2017/08/18) says: 1. Enhance Memory Compatibility for Ryzen CPU 2. Improve LAN stability before entering to OS I just uninstalled my Ryzen 1800X CPU that I bought on launch day (March 2nd) to put in a box for RMA. I tested it and find it's one of the early chips suffering from the dreaded Linux segfault issue. I also see occasional crashes in my Windows 10 VM when performing multi-threaded tasks. They sent me a FedEx label and said they'll ship out the replacement once the tracking system shows I've dropped off the old one, so I'll take care of that tomorrow morning. As such, I won't be able to try out the new BIOS until I get my replacement chip and have vetted it using the current system settings. - Bill
  11. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    BTW, you can't deselect CPU0 until you select a different CPU first. Probably a requirement that at least one CPU is selected for any given VM. - Bill
  12. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    Pretty sure I've run into something similar. These days I just double and triple check that my path settings are accurate. Haven't had a problem in many, many months. We'll see if it shows up at the next OS upgrade. I'm still on 6.3.5 right now. - Bill
  13. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    Three things come to mind: 1) Click the "Settings" tab, then "VM Manager", and then switch to "Advanced View". Ensure there are no errors/warnings on this page. 2) Click "View libvirt log", see if anything in there is helpful. Post it here if necessary. 3) Toward the bottom under "Libvirt volume info", click "Scrub". Sometimes that gets me out of weird behavior. You probably want to be sure all your other VMs are stopped prior to doing this. For completeness, how long has this issue been occurring? Has it ever worked? Do you recall any system changes performed around the time the failure started? - Bill

    I'm not a gamer. My GPU is the Asus Radeon 6450 1GB (Desktop) Graphics Card. I can run a test like Cinebench from the Windows 10 VM and return results for that, if that's helpful? I don't own any of those high end games, though. - Bill
