    Most durable nvme m.2?

    https://www.romexsoftware.com/en-us/primo-cache/example-reduce-ssd-wear.html Came across this, anyone tried it? Was thinking of using Drivepool as destination cache, kinda odd i know to use slower drive, but it should be more ideal cause i read somewhere HDD has better write cycle than SSD I...

    Most durable nvme m.2?

    Thanks for the input dreece, Good idea, but i'm not sure about apps other than chrome e.g sonarr radarr utorrent qbittorrent. I dont think they're optimized for cache relocation yet I've been thinking of symlink'ing those apps to drivepool instead, (or maybe to ramdisk?) I will check...

    Most durable nvme m.2?

    Just tried Procexp and perfmon but they neither seem to be able to monitor which app is writing to C drive exclusively. procexp only monitors total write, and i can't find a way to include apps in perfmon's disk monitoring But based on procexp it seems blue iris sonarr and radarr are the top...

    Actually total tb written is 64tb for 76 days, that translates into about 0.8tb daily write

    Most durable nvme m.2?

    I did try 970, it failed twice within a year. Anyways, i ran task manager and apparently explorer.exe and system takes the top2 spots. No wonder it killed my 970 twice, it's a server 2019 connected to jbod rack with 200tb, i'm using drivepool. Any thoughts of what could windows possibly do...

    I got a server running m.2 DC p4511 as OS disk, which has Power loss protection and High Endurance Technology, and from my previous experience with intel SSD drive, HET drive can sustain heavy write But it doesnt seem to be the case for the M.2 version, few hours ago my server crashed, saying...

    EU HGST 4U SAS3 12GB/s Storage Enclosure 60 bays £299

    Any idea if Dell's Cable Management Arm is compatible with this ? It seems to be identical.. can't find HGST's CMA anywhere Put my jbod on a rack and turns out the QSFP cable is longer than i thought, and it's a bit worrying cause its hanging out when i pull / push the rack. Edit : also i did...

    HBA passthrough best practice

    No need to apologize i appreciate your input, but the "internal error" happened on my non-ecc machine, The ECC machine is my spare machine and where i test hyper-v and vmware. I will test it again on my ecc machine. But i doubt it's memory issue since i've seen it posted on some forums, try...

    HBA passthrough best practice

    Do you have to disable the emulated vga when your gpu is p/t'ed? The principle should be similar to igpu It's not connection problem, sometimes the rdp service needs to be restarted, or else it would show "internal error". Happens like 2-3 times a month, and IPMI is extremely helpful for cases...

    HBA passthrough best practice

    Update: I decided to give esxi a go first. I thought i'd try something simpler first before trying proxmox. It wasnt exactly a smooth process, had to google some errors, and i had to use specific esxi versions and tweak some settings to get (almost) what i want. Why almost? Well with igpu...

    HBA passthrough best practice

    How often will i have to troubleshoot through command line with my case for 24/7 usage? I dont mind using command line, as long as they're windows based, which most of my servers are, But linux is, eh.. havent touched it for like 10 years.. wish MS could just get passthrough right with w2021

    HBA passthrough best practice

    I did some researching but i couldn't find any ways to passthrough Intel UHD, so most likely i'm gonna go ESXI route, Proxmox was on my list, but i'm worried about its stability and i'm not good with command lines tbh (hence why i prefer hyper-v)

    u.2 drive cooling?

    Just ordered a p4610, and based on the what ive read here and from my experience with sn200, u.2 drive requires proper cooling. Would it be a good idea to stick some kind of heatsink / fan on top of the drive?
