    Best Hard Drives for an UnRaid System?

    Seagate Exos X14 are PMR, not SMR. I wouldn’t worry about reliability between either of those two models. We have no indication current SMR drives are any different in reliability than other hard disks, however they do have a performance penalty with large amounts of writes, and hence we do NOT recommend them for use in RAID.
  3. Fellow Forum Members, I'm planning to build an Unraid system. I am thinking about buying a quantity of four 14TB hard drives. Can anyone please clarify the following for me. For hard drives with such a large capacity which of the three recording technologies shown below do Hard Drive manufacturers usually use for 14tb hard drives? Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) (aka Longitudinal Magnetic Recording (LMR)). Perpindicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) I'm asking because I called Western Digital technical support and he told me he could not disclose to me which of the three recording technologies their14TB Gold Label server grade hard drives use. So I hope someone in this community can clarify this matter for me. Additionally, I would appreciate any opinions that clarify what is behind the $147 price difference for the two 14TB hard drive options shown below: $343 - Seagate Exos X14 14TB (ST14000NM0018): https://www.newegg.com/p/1Z4-002P-00RY9 $490 - WD Gold 14TB Enterprise Class Hard Drive (WD141KRYZ): https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16822234400 Is it because the Seagate Exos uses SMR technology (making it less reliable) and the WD Gold Label uses CMR technology (making it more reliable)? These two hard drive models are the last two options I have come down two in my final decision making. Therefore, I would be very grateful if I can get any good advice that will help me in making the final decision of getting one over the other. Top of my list is reliability. I don't want to buy the one that is going to fail after 3 years of use. Second on my list is noise. I don't want to buy one that is very loud. Which of these two hard drive options best meets these two requirements I am seeking? Thank you in advance for any opinions.
  4. I have 4 x 4TB harddisk and use it to form a RAID 5, 12TB namely (11TB in fact) array and find that the FS (FreeBSD with UFS - 600GB for / and ZFS - ~10TB for data) will crash suddenly after about 1 month usage, I test this many time with the same result on 3 6805 card. Does this is a bug too ?

  6. Nope, user data got stolen. Just a few hours ago the first spam mail penetrated the spam filter I developed. I checked the logs and since march 2019 there were many more mails rejected by my filter. But the mail discussed here never hit my mail server. So has SR sent out a warning mail to all users informing them about this security incident? timestamp country clientaddress sender 2019-12-15 19:39:42 MY 101.99.66.232 info@vlive-international.com 2019-12-15 19:29:42 MY 101.99.66.232 info@vlive-international.com 2019-11-27 11:14:58 VN 123.21.113.120 Sorohachettesuf@gkel.com.au 2019-11-20 09:41:44 PK 182.176.184.80 analystNerosTie2@1z6ts6us5h8.qqu.stoptheslander.com 2019-10-30 22:54:42 VN 113.172.65.153 4utre3@gmail.com 2019-10-28 11:00:02 AU 121.210.17.31 [redacted] 2019-10-28 09:12:21 MX 177.239.2.30 [redacted] 2019-10-25 16:38:59 TR 88.230.72.247 [redacted] 2019-10-25 14:55:01 RU 88.200.215.60 [redacted] 2019-10-25 13:08:46 UA 88.154.208.224 [redacted] 2019-10-25 10:56:34 KW 62.215.28.190 [redacted] 2019-10-25 08:49:10 KR 14.52.91.174 [redacted] 2019-10-25 05:26:19 GB 151.230.110.40 [redacted] 2019-10-25 05:25:57 GB 151.230.110.40 [redacted] 2019-10-25 05:25:34 GB 151.230.110.40 [redacted] 2019-10-25 05:24:55 GB 151.230.110.40 [redacted] 2019-10-25 00:33:57 BO 186.121.199.22 [redacted] 2019-10-25 00:33:22 BO 186.121.199.22 [redacted] 2019-10-25 00:32:41 BO 186.121.199.22 [redacted] 2019-10-25 00:31:32 BO 186.121.199.22 [redacted] 2019-10-15 09:14:05 US 69.94.131.90 guntramtbknxxhtschida@mehediphone.com 2019-10-15 07:58:59 US 69.94.131.90 guntramtbknxxhtschida@mehediphone.com 2019-10-15 06:06:16 HU 217.112.128.139 ellirqfgpqe@inticables.com 2019-10-15 04:57:40 HU 217.112.128.209 kristawbxgbpp@napamod.com 2019-10-14 17:26:41 45.95.33.65 wolfgangaxcnxecmessner@mycheapcase.com 2019-10-14 01:21:39 HU 217.112.128.172 lammertpedqbpbschmitt@kkmmetalfab.com 2019-10-13 17:13:06 45.95.33.49 nikolaqgpjmpxforstner@toddsearles.com 2019-10-13 05:03:03 HU 217.112.128.51 oralmhyzfbx@avsfoodjunction.com 2019-07-30 22:41:50 MY 121.122.51.145 saphometak@throam.com 2019-07-30 22:39:01 AU 118.211.76.110 sfgr@dgt.com 2019-07-30 01:53:05 VC 207.191.249.46 alex@stewarton.com 2019-05-15 08:34:48 VN 125.214.52.223 [redacted] 2019-04-13 21:01:06 BR 191.37.102.94 [redacted] 2019-04-13 13:22:56 PL 37.47.163.238 [redacted] 2019-04-13 13:22:53 PL 37.47.163.238 [redacted] 2019-04-13 13:22:50 PL 37.47.163.238 [redacted] 2019-04-13 13:22:46 PL 37.47.163.238 [redacted] 2019-04-13 13:21:52 PL 88.156.130.195 [redacted] 2019-04-13 13:21:47 PL 88.156.130.195 [redacted] 2019-04-13 13:21:43 PL 88.156.130.195 [redacted] 2019-04-13 13:21:38 PL 88.156.130.195 [redacted] 2019-04-13 02:56:30 DO 186.149.122.96 [redacted] 2019-04-12 18:21:19 SA 188.51.137.199 [redacted] 2019-04-12 10:47:13 VN 183.81.75.182 [redacted] 2019-04-11 23:11:53 MX 201.141.239.134 [redacted] 2019-03-12 07:19:50 ID 139.228.226.72 [redacted] 2019-03-12 06:03:03 AR 200.114.165.213 [redacted] 2019-03-12 06:02:59 AR 200.114.165.213 [redacted] 2019-03-12 06:02:54 AR 200.114.165.213 [redacted] 2019-03-12 06:02:49 AR 200.114.165.213 [redacted] 2019-03-12 06:01:20 AR 181.44.126.165 [redacted] 2019-03-12 04:43:55 VN 115.73.40.85 [redacted] 2019-03-12 02:06:22 PT 95.92.154.24 [redacted] 2019-03-12 02:06:20 PT 95.92.154.24 [redacted] 2019-03-12 02:06:17 PT 95.92.154.24 [redacted] 2019-03-12 02:06:14 PT 95.92.154.24 [redacted] 2019-03-12 00:34:08 PL 188.147.35.170 [redacted] 2019-03-12 00:34:04 PL 188.147.35.170 [redacted] 2019-03-12 00:34:00 PL 188.147.35.170 [redacted] 2019-03-12 00:33:49 PL 188.147.35.170 [redacted] 2019-03-11 23:30:07 BR 131.255.68.3 [redacted] 2019-03-11 22:23:42 45.164.84.10 [redacted] 2019-03-11 21:19:15 MX 201.131.203.74 [redacted] 2019-03-07 23:01:02 NA 41.182.162.22 [redacted] 2019-03-07 23:00:58 NA 41.182.162.22 [redacted] 2019-03-07 23:00:53 NA 41.182.162.22 [redacted] 2019-03-07 23:00:42 NA 41.182.162.22 [redacted] At least the subject is true...

I am a hacker who has access to your operating system. I also have full access to your account. I've been watching you for a few months now. The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site = that you visited. If you are not familiar with this, I will explain. Trojan Virus gives me full access and control over a computer or other= device. This means that I can see everything on your screen, turn on the camer= a and microphone, but you do not know about it. I also have access to all your contacts and all your correspondence. Why your antivirus did not detect malware? Answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 4 ho= urs so that your antivirus is silent. I made a video showing how you satisfy yourself in the left half of th= e screen, and in the right half you see the video that you watched. With one click of the mouse, I can send this video to all your emails = and contacts on social networks. I can also post access to all your e-mail correspondence and messenger= s that you use. If you want to prevent this, transfer the amount of $500 to my bitcoin address (if you do not know = how to do this, write to Google: "Buy Bitcoin"). My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: 1FErgudo2nCpuu9XSLJkSiqQBy62N1wei= y After receiving the payment, I will delete the video and you will neve= r hear me again.

    Hard drive errors, time to get a new one?

    Run the drive manufacturer's diagnostic utility. If it gives a pass after both long and short tests, don't worry about it. If it fails, definitely get a new drive. Raw SMART values are notoriously difficult to interpret given the varying meanings between manufacturers on what exactly in those values constitute failures vs. failing vs. health. You can break it down if you want-- I know several people who do so with skill on other forums-- but running the manufacturer's test is by far the easiest thing to do for a reasonable answer.
  14. Kixs97 did you try to create _one_ large partition (GPT formatted disk) bigger than 2TB on the drive ? (like the pic I posted above) That's the real test to do to see if the size is supported.

    onboard raid controller giving me grief

    The destination client under #1 is a different system in #2, #3, or #4? If so sounds like something is weird with client #1.

    onboard raid controller giving me grief

    I don't know if I'd ever reccomend anyone use RAID0, especially network shares. In your setup are you using a BIOS controlled software RAID for all of this, or Windows Server software RAID?

    News comments now link to reddit?

    The forums just haven't been engaged with much, we have more engagement with Reddit, so we're experimenting there. Revamped the podcast...doing all sorts of things to see if we can better figure out a way to engage with our audience.

    News comments now link to reddit?

    Yes, I noticed that as well. The username and password didn't transfer to the new website. :( It seems like the end of SR 2.0.
  19. I see there have been no forum comment threads for news posts since Nov 19. When I followed a comment link, it took me to reddit. Which I've never signed up with. Is SR discontinuing the forum here? I notice a lot of spam lately, even after I reported one. Spam still up days later. I actually wanted to comment on the Seagate dual-actuator story. They talk about HAMR, release it to trusted partners for testing ... and we hear nothing more. No public release. They talk about dual-actuator, now released to trusted partners for testing ... and no word on public availability. The future seems to be putting up a fight about becoming the present. Are the HAMR drives experiencing issues in testing? That would explain why they haven't shipped yet.
  20. I have had issues with the following system in the past not being stable. This was improved when Gigabyte released a new bios. Since then I have had very occasional reboots which have left the machine stuck at the "boot failure detected" screen. Which when investigating the issue it pointed to a problem with the graphics driver. system: windows server 2019 Gigabyte Z170M D3H F22f bios 8GB corsair 3000mghz XMP Intel 6100T Antec Earthwatts 380W psu drive config below. so moving forward I have now found a repeatable task that will cause the system to reboot every time: 1) if I copy a large file (78GB for instance) using the server 2019 desktop to push the file to a network share from the Raid 0 I have on 2x Hitachi 4TB NAS drives (that also have a raid 1 setup on them). result REEBOOT. 2) if I pull the file from the same array using another windows 10 machine it transfers fine. 3) if I transfer the same file to the other raid 0 (2x 120gb ssd's) I have on the same server it works fine. 4) if I then send that file from the SSD raid 0 to a network share it works fine. it only reboots when I push the file from the raid 0 on the 2x NAS drives. the drive config is as follows: server 2019 on 2x 128GB crucial M4-CT128M4SSD2 drives in raid 0. data drives on 2x 4TB Hitachi HGST HDN724040ALE640 drives. configured as 3.6tb raid 0 and 1.8tb raid 1. ive changed the ram to some Kingston 2400mghz ram and it seems to run fine and copy without issue. so thought it must be faulty ram. got the ram replaced and getting the same issue. any ideas would be appreciated. some theories i have is the CPU maybe cant run at 3000mghz on the ram side as its a 6100T or faulty CPU/motherboard?
  21. linuxbuild, you do realize this thread is from 2014? It's doubtful any drive mentioned above is still manufactured today. Your link post in the other (current) thread suffices.

    Hard drive errors, time to get a new one?

    You can use WikiPedia's key to SMART values. 1) Read Error Rate = vendor specific value. Desired to be "low", but that's all we know. Interpreting it would vary by manufacturer. 7) Seek Error Rate = another vendor specific value. We don't even know if high or low values are desired. 184) End-to-End error = desired to be low. This attribute may predict drive failure. The last one is the only one I'd worry about. On top of that, you're getting recurring disk errors. I'd replace the drive. You're backed up, right? In case the drive fails unexpectedly?
  23. I would personally stay away from Seagate. I posted on this very forum about a recent issue with three failing hard drives in a row. If you do a little research it seems that Seagate are indeed the hard drive with the highest failing rate.

    There is also a community collected reliability data for desktop drives: https://github.com/linuxhw/SMART
  25. Usually it depends on the particular drive model. There is a project to estimate reliability of desktop hard drives: https://github.com/linuxhw/SMART You can search for most reliable model or vendor in the list.

    Hard drive errors, time to get a new one?

    no one?
  27. Hi there, Noob question: when you get errors like this, does that mean it is time to get a new hard drive? Raw Read Error Rate: 81/44, Worst: 78 Seek Error Rate: 60/45, Worst: 60 End to End Error Detection Count: 100/99, Worst: 100 For the record, the data comes from a S.M.A.R.T. test I did following some issues with the internal hard drive. Randomly, folders disappeared. After a check disk I've got the folders back, but then it happened again. Luckily, with the check disk I've been able to recover the folders.
  28. Diamanti's previous platforms have been in the form of on-premise hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) appliances that provide both the HW and SW needed to support containerized applications. With Spektra, Diamanti aims to combine their hardware-accelerated x86 platform with cloud-based infrastructure to provide Kubernetes-as-a-Service, along with built-in disaster recovery of workloads and application data. While Diamanti claims that they will be able to provide a single control pane spanning both their on-premise hardware and public clouds, they have provided no details on what that might look like or how it would work. Someone seems to believe their solution is worthwhile though. On November 7th the company announced the close of a $35 million Series C funding round.
