  1. I finally bit the bullet and installed Proxmox, followed your idea, assigned an e1000 nic for management, then added a vmxnet3 nic attached to my 10G network, assigned static IP in the synology GUI, but synology only reports the vmxnet3 nic to be 1G (not 10G), and file transfers were also around 1G. I repeated the same exercise in KVM, same results. So I'm back to the search for working virtIO network drivers. Anyone have any updates on this front please?
  2. Hi IG-88, just checking if you had any chances to look at the virtIO driver please? Kind regards.
  3. Hi Evgenii, I appreciate your help on this, but I can't get it to work my end at all, I am on KVM, not Proxmox, so can't follow your example config exactly.
  4. I did try this previously and again, I couldn't get it working. Im using 1.04b. I have an already working Xpenology using e1000e, I shut it down, then instead of e1000e, I manually type vmxnet3, turn on the vm, but I can discover it on my network. Is there anything I need to do differently?
  5. Yes indeed, I am the OP. My point was VirtIO driver showing 100G (I don't have 100G nic or switch, I have 10G), but therefore the Driver is not the bottle neck, where e1000 is. I have multiple KVM hosts, all with 10G nics, so using an e1000 driver is not great.
  6. For example, I have 3 drives in Raid 0, so HDD speed wise, I should hit around 260MB/s. The e1000 driver is only around 100MB/s, so copying large files can be slow. The VirtIO driver (in Windows at least) is 100G, so there is not bottleneck in the NICs.
  7. Just checking in, see if theres any update please?
  8. Hi, just to update on a couple of things. I guess its best to make a special version for testing with kvm - Yes, a KVM specific version would probably be easier to debug. anything that should not be loaded with kvm? anything special needed beside virtio modules? - Not that I am aware of no. can you see over virtual serial port whats happens? - see below for example serial output using a modded 1.02b whats the emulated network chip in kvm or what choices you have? - That I do not know GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.9 ���������������������
  9. Hi, more than happy to test whatever's needed, might just need some guidance. As like a few others, virtio is the main thing which is holding us back with KVM / Proxmox / Unraid. Kind regards.
  10. Anyone get any further with this, would love to get this working.
  11. Hi, I am trying to get virtio network driver working using in a VM in KVM, as the e1000e network driver (which is working) gives very bad performance. I am using IG-88's driver extension (extra.lzma), but can't get it working. This is what I have done. I added in 'virtio, virtio_ring and virtio_net' in the EXTRA_MODULES section on the rc.modules file, saved and re-compressed. On windows I used OSFMount to mount the current 1.03b synoboot.img, mounted partition 1, copied (replaced) current extra.lzma file with new one, in OSFMount - dismount all and exit. Copied new synobo
  12. Thanks for the info, I think I understand. I have created a new extra.lzma file (although I do get 'large inode number truncated: Result too large' in every line, outout_log.txt attached). I have inserted this into the ds3615 v1.03b, but although I get the loading screen (so it's loading the synoboot.img) I still can't get it to discover it on the network using 'http://find.synology.com/'. I have also attached my latest extra.lzma file. output_log.txt extra.lzma
  13. Hii, I have been trying to use this latest extra.lzma file (although I am new to this), with virtio_net for use with KVM. I downloaded the new extra.lzma file, and followed this guide: I added in 'virtio_net' in the EXTRA_MODULES section on the rc.modules file, saved and re-compressed. On windows I used OSFMount to mount the current 1.03b synoboot.img, mounted partition 1, copied (replaced) current extra.lzma file with new one, in OSFMount - dismount all and exit. Copied new synoboot.img over, created new VM, but cant get http://find.synology.com to find it, even using e

    Hi IG-88, I appreciate your reply and good news support will be coming. Any chance I could try your 'test versions for 3615/17' please? Kind regards.

    Sorry, correction.. "but can't find a synoboot-1.04b with virtio driver compiled in"
