  1. Hi,

     

    it's been some time that I can't get the network tab on Resource Monitor to work.

    1739405758_Schermata2022-02-28alle18_30_26.thumb.png.600781f9d7119f40c5ad7610623ba8ff.png

     

    The "Rete" (italian for network) infos are always at 0, but the network is working properly so I think it's just a resource monitor related problem.

     

    After some digging around I found some articles like this https://q1f4mmprz7gko.wordpress.com/2014/05/22/fixing-a-broken-resource-monitor-in-dsm-5-0/ which even if it's for DSM 5.0 and I've DSM 6.1.7 the parts related to SNMP database being the problem seems pointing me in the right direction.

     

    The fix suggested was to recreate the db with /usr/syno/sbin/synosnmpcd -r but my problem here's kinda different, here's what I get with a grep from the logs.

     

    synosnmpcd: db_handler_class.cpp:512 Error: cannot check database exist or not.
    synosnmpcd: main.cpp:116 Cannot Drop the dababase
    synosnmpcd: main.cpp:121 delete the DB over
    synosnmpcd: pgsql.c (96) Failed to connect to (null), user: postgres, pass:xxx, db:synosnmp. (FATAL:  database "synosnmp" does not exist
    synosnmpcd: db_handler_class.cpp:951 Error: Connect failed

     

    And from here I really couldn't find anything else to help me.

     

    Anyone here maybe knows how I can fix it?

    Thanks!

  2. I can’t thank you enough, with this plenty of options coming out of this wasn’t that straightforward.

     

    In conclusion as I’m adding 6TB drives one at a time when I need them, I’ll just don’t worry too much at this time on what I’ll use as soon as I’ll need the 5th one in the setup and fill up the sata ports in my motherboard.

     

    But if I had to get something today I’ll say yeah I’ll go with JMB585 5xSata and call it a day. Not planning to use SSD for caching anymore nor main storage so no need for crazy speeds, the JMB585 would be more than enough (I’ll not use the sata 5 port) for 8 max HDDs in my setup without bottlenecking the parity checks or normal use, and no driver worries etc, plus is cheaper than other solutions.

     

    In the meanwhile I’ll for sure upgrade to 16GB RAM (2x8) and that one more 6TB drive I need.

     

    If I’ll need more (faster network etc) I’ll have to rethink the entire setup and I don’t think that will happen anytime soon since I’m happy with my setup since late 2014, as I have no problem with both file server/backup use or media streaming. By that time maybe there will be newer options too.

     

    Thanks again for the patience ;)

  3. Thanks for the clear explanation, now I’ve a more clear view in mind, and I really don’t want to give up performance specially for parity check, I don’t want to think about just regular use which I well know is bottlenecked by network speed.

     

    I’m currently still on DS3615xs with DSM 6.1.7 and I’ll probably update to DS3617xs so maybe LSI SAS isn’t bad for my use case, I read is supported as is right? I don’t need hardware encoding or NVME cache so I think I won’t miss DS918+.

    if you are only using 1Gbit network (112 MByte/s) you might not see any difference and when using "a" sata ssd it will be only read cache and that would be even more useless in a home environment, so if you really want ssd cache plan two disks but i would not spent money on that, more things can go wrong and no gain

    i use 10G network, 12x 4TB, no ssd cache and have 500-700 MB/s good enough for me

    Yeah I would have done just a read-only cache, I thought it would have helped with accessing smaller files as in my use case.

    the ecs06 is just a asm1166 card and there are other brands

    my asm1166 test card from last year had one issue as it made dsm see 32 sata ports but as long as its the 2nd card of two (onboard + pcie sata) its not problem and even with more cards there might be ways to deal with it (DiskIdxMap and SataPortMap)

     

    asm1166 card seems to be the best way

    there are also lsi sas cards that use 8 pcie 2.0 lanes and offer 8 sata ports but with 918+ i'm not confident using them (3617 would be ok as the drivers come with dsm)

     

    Looking around I found this one Pcie 4x to 6 SATA which seems nice, I'm not in an hurry to get it but I like to do my research in advance, mostly I want something that can support full sata 3 speeds on all 6 HDDs, I think this should do, right? Thanks again.

  5. @IG-88 thanks for the deep dive into this tests, I came here too because I was looking for a pcie to sata card, do you have any more specific recommendations for a recent 6xSATA3 one?

     

    I've got a SilverStone DS380 case with 8bays and with an ASRock H87M-ITX I can only add up to 4 disks, and since I currently have 3 WD Red and gonna soon need one more (and probably a sata SSD for cache too) I was looking around on what could work without hassle. I've seen the SilverStone ECS06 but not much updated info with DSM. Thanks in advance if you can help!
