After spending a lot of time reading valuable sources such as STH, I spent the last 3 months slowly incubating my new file server. I am unfortunately quite disappointed by the performance of the resulting system.

Hi, I just built a system with a 7282 and an Asrock Rack EPYCD8-2T.
It seems to be rock solid with Lubuntu 18.04 but here are a couple of question I really hope you could answer since I'm driven crazy with them.

I’m working on a home server project using a Dell R720 to serve as a NAS, PLEX server, and torrent grabber. This is my first server ever and my first experience in networking, server hardware, and Linux. Because of this, I do not know how to carry out the three functions listed out above so I’m...
So I have taken the plunge and am building a Linux lab server around a E2100 Xeon. I have six 8TB SATA drives that I plan to put into a ZFS RaidZ2 pool. I am considering adding some L2ARC and ZIL/SLOG cache to increase IOPS and I have a 240GB M2 SSD (Corsair MP510) for that. To complete the...
I am new to the forum, and I don't know if this is the right place to post this here.

I would like to know what kind of OS and setup should I use. I don't know much Linux commands...
I'm looking for a 970 PRO NVMe alike drive with real Linux support!
Samsung says their drives are working on Linux but are only optimized for Windows performance and their firmware update tool only runs on Windows.
Shouldn't we punish them by not buying their drives until they change their...
Hello, I've been using Virtualmin for a while and i cant seem to find a forum that is active enough to learn something new.
If anyone has been using Virtualmin for a while on a host like Digitalocean and whatnot, you come to realize that storage space is a problem.
Unless you want to be...
This project started out as a budget project to reuse old equipment that I had stashed around the house.

128GB Samsung OEM SSD
Nvidia Quadro FX3500
LSI MegaRaid SAS 8888ELP
Belkin USB 3.0...

Has anyone here used zswap on their servers? I've been hunting for information comparing zswap performance to zram (which I've used heavily) but I can't seem to find much beyond high level comparisons between the two.
I'm interested because zswap avoids the LRU inversion problem that zram seems...

Hello STH forum, I have a question about running Windows on Proxmox because this is giving me a bad time so far. I'm asking here at STH first because it seems to me there is more technical knowledge on STH than on the Proxmox forums.
Some relevant specs of the box I'm running this on:
