    LSI 9361-8i ESXi 6.7u3

    I have been trying to figure out what the management strategy is for a controller like this under ESXi. I have not been able to get any status information from the controller aside from through the BIOS. I have heard LSI LSA is the way to do this, the utility discovers the host but lists no...

    Intel speedstep/turbo boost

    Looking to gather a better understanding what occurs here at a low level. If a server has been set to high performance mode in the bios I would expect that turbo boost is then disabled as its dependency speedstep is disabled?

    Performance troubleshooting.

    Hello all, Looking for some thoughts on some odd array performance I have seen when building out a new box. I am running ZoL as a VM in ESXi currently with the array controller passed through. The VM has 16 CPU's and 24GB of memory. I recognize 24GB is not enough for an optimal setup but I was...

    Which disks for new array?

    All, I currently have 24 8TB disks of 3 different models. I am trying to determine which ones best fit the needs for a home NAS. The Seagates are by far the fastest on paper but are also the most expensive. I figured I could test them in 8disk z2's to get a benchmark of how each different disk...

    SSD causing APD in ESXI host

    I had a samsung SSD that kept causing issues in one of my hosts. I have removed the disk to check the current state of the disk, the disk doesnt look all that bad to me. Since it kept crashing the host I am unsure of what to do with it now. Little bit confused as to how this seemingly fine disk...

    Bang for buck v4 ES proc

    I know many of you here have run ES processors. I have a new server coming in with 2620v4's and had thought maybe by using ES procs I could get quite a bit more bang for the buck. The motherboard will be a Supermicro X10DRH-iT.

    I just got some new HGST 8TB SAS3 disks. The drives were used for 2 weeks for a POC. All drives have a manufature date of FEB 2016. All of them are showing 24K POH's somehow, it would not be possible for them to have more than say 15K hours on them even if the description wasnt true and they...

    Mining Shitshow

    It has been requested by a few poeple that I share some pics from my mining shitshow. Full disclosure this space is a complete disaster and makes me cringe when I see it. That being said I put all this together for it to make money not look good, and it has made the money. All the rigs are...

    Force ashift=12

    I am working on a new freenas server but notice that my drives Hitachi HUA72303 are using 512b E. Due to this the pool is being created with ashift=9. Since it is highly likely that disks get swapped at some point I am trying to figure out how to force these to use ashift=12 to avoid headache...
