In an attempt to learn the plugin API, I created a plugin which replicates the functionality of many of the official plugins, but combined into a single plugin. The benefit of this is that you can use functionality from several plugins without them "fighting" each other. I'm releasing this open source for others to use or learn from here: https://github.com/cjmanca/AllInOne Or you can download a precompiled version at: https://github.com/cjmanca/AllInOne/releases Here's an example of the settings panel. Notice the 1.5 tb drive is set to not contain duplicated or undupl
I recently added a shucked 12TB WD Elements drive and added it to a four bay enclosure connected to my PC via USB3. Before shucking, I ran several tests and confirmed that the drive is in good condition without any errors. However, once I added it to my current pool, I quickly noticed that balancing is incredibly slow in the range of 10-20 MB/s while also sending the drive's activity to 100%. What's strange is that it will typically start around 70-90 MB/s (and drive activity to about 60-70%) and after roughly one minute, the speeds plummet down. I have several terabytes of Linux ISOs to
Hi, I apologize if this is too general or not the right place to post this, but I havent been able to find an answer thus far, so Im posting this in the hopes I can get the answers without testing myself. I currently have quite a few hard drives in a jbod collection. What I hope to do is have one pool of 15TB of in use drives, combined with a total of 28TB in new storage where I can have a pool of 21tb in always on drives backing up periodically to a pool of 22tb TBD drives which would be either for file duplication in a raid 1 fashion or backup. What Im unsure of is how I can
Hi everyone, I have a WHS2011 server with 8 active pool drives. I have one drive that's very old and I don't trust. I'm using the add-on balancer "File Placement Limiter" and it's the top priority. I've told it not to store unduplicated files on this drive. The little red arrow shows my setting of "Unduplicated file placement limit 0.0%", however it's currently balancing and shows an unduplicated target of 108GB of files to this drive. I have never been able to get it to adhere to these rules. The other day I had a drive develop SMART errors and I have the "StableBit Scanner" balancer as
