  1. @flyride so it's safe to use them? ... I' ve also tested TWO Samsung 970 EVO (instead of Plus version) and I got the same result in SSH and the same in DSM (they work like a charm) ... but isn't it very strange? Can be the standard Linux binary so firmware version dependant?
  2. @IG-88 I can confirm that RTL8125 works like a charm ... I have also update DSM to 6.2.3U3 without problems. I've change both the two NVMes from Crucial to Samsung 970 EVO PLUS to have better cache's performance as I've have said, but I've gotten in troubles as you can read here ... if you have any hint ... it's welcome!
  3. @flyride I have a strange behaviour since I have changed the NVMe disk's brand and updated to new Samsung 970 EVO+: thinks are working correctly in DSM as you can see https://www.dropbox.com/s/nwrfvwdss87zymj/Screenshot 2021-02-02 at 10.46.13.png?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/fcb8mlzeohwb4bf/Screenshot 2021-02-02 at 10.47.02.png?dl=0 but I don't have the correct list in Terminal: Root@NAS:~$ synonvme --is-nvme-ssd /dev/nvme0n1 It is a NVMe SSD Root@NAS:~$ nvme list Node SN Model Namespace
  4. I didn't opt for that convoluted and expensive solution: I just bought a QNAP switch 2,5Gbe e connected all my devices (two hackintoshes, and NAS) directly to it. All with 2,5Gb NIC on board. Write and read are consistent at full max speed if the storage source is an SSD/Nvme disk.
  5. Sorry for the late reply, and Happy New year! I had a lot of troubles with my 10Gbe ring (CRC errors) and after many tests I ended up discovering that my Asus 10Gbe switch was the culprit. Connecting NAS and Mac peer-to-peer made all the errors disappears. Now I sent back the switch and after thinking a bit about what we've discussed I've opted out for a 2,5Gbe ring instead of a 10Gbe, it's much more cheaper and it'll probably have performances that correctly match the Crucial NVMe disks I've bought. Maybe in the future I will consider selling my Crucial NVMe's and cha
  6. I made a recap post above ... and there is all the links you need ...
  7. I guess I have to study a bit more! ... that's the initial test' results: https://www.dropbox.com/s/d7hlhkae5lc9p7a/Screenshot 2020-12-20 at 12.59.06.png?dl=0 so the network is the bottleneck here... ny NAS has only 8GB RAM so I really don't know about the ram as cache ... maybe I should consider another type of NVMe ... mine are those one: https://www.anandtech.com/show/13512/the-crucial-p1-1tb-ssd-review and I read the following: too sad... I have to dig further on the NVMe technology, I guess. Thanks for now! I'll report back.
  8. @IG-88 Sorry for the late reply but I needed a second 10Gbe card to connect things properly. At the moment I'm still using an Asus switch XG-U2008, it was very cheap at half the price so I got it, and now I have my 10Gb ring between Mac (Hackintosh actually) and Nas Xpenology . Here are some speed tests: https://www.dropbox.com/s/db6h5xp9vpl24lj/Screenshot 2020-12-10 at 19.32.11.png?dl=0 considering that: I'm already using jumbo frames, SMB2/3 without signing and 7 cables' type (one 5meters, the other one 1,5 meters), I'm copying a single big file (around
  9. Uhm... why should it become slow? Maybe it needs a bit of time for the cache to just "caching" all your files . I suggest to use the NAS for some days and then decide. Problem is that as you copied the file, in case something is wrong if you haven't done a backup of it you cannot have it back.
  10. I'm setting up a connection between a Mac (Hackintosh) with 10GBe ethernet card, a Xpenology setup with Sonnet 10Gbe card and I'm waiting for a Netgear switch 10Gbe (2 ports 10Gbe), and then I will post the result. In the meanwhile I was noting that Synology DSM 6.2.3u2 is based on a very old Linux kernel: unmane -r 4.4.59+ and from version 4.15 the Linux kernel is supporting Thunderbolt devices, and networking over Thunderbolt too. I'm wondering if/whether Synology DSM 7.0 will have the right version of Linux kernel to add Thunderbolt support; if it will be th
  11. Just a recap for those who'll want to try NVMe cache because all the thread is quite messy imho. The above shell script with DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 2 (on DS918+ , indeed) does not work anymore. At least in my experience it leads in an incorrect state where the two NVMe are not recognised as the same and therefore they cannot be used for a necessary RAID 1 in case of R/W cache. The only thing is really working at the moment is a copy of the libsynonvme.so.1 to the right path. So put this file in a public zone of your volume (this is my case) or wherever you like and th
  12. Thank you so much. I have successfully upgraded to 6.2.3 update 2 even if they have been the longest 10 minutes of my life !!!! Everything went well !!! Now I will work on the NVMe Cache!
  13. @IG-88 thank you SO MUCH! It was the 2 nic's limit. Now everything is working like a charm! Just another question: if I have a DSM 6.2.2 where the /dev/dri/ directory was not present and, after modifying the IGFX BIOS setup now - with a new test HDD - the dev/dri/ is present, when I upgrade to DSM 6.2.3 on the production HDDs the new .pat file will register the modification in BIOS and create the /dev/dri/ accordingly?
  14. Hi all, I'm in the process of upgrading my Xpenology custom NAS (details in signature) and I've bought a Sonnet 10Gbe card , which it should be based on Aquantia 107 chip, and I've inserted its MAC into the grub.cfg file as MAC2. DSM is 6.2.3 update 2 (25426) for DS918+ , latest loader 1.04b with latest extra files (v. 1.13.3). But I still don't see the card... is it among those supported?
  15. Please have a look at posts: 91 / 93 / 98
  16. Hi there, @TomLuke @IG-88 I have success in installing DSM 6.2.2 on this same motherboard with an Intel i3-8100, with jun loader 1.04 and DS918+ pat system. I'm very happy about that! Thank you all for the precious informations! And I've successfully followed the procedure for updating the cosmetic info about my CPU in DSM. Now I have a couple of questions: Tom, do you have success in having WOL correctly working on I-210 or i-219? I correctly set the WOL options in DSM but I'ven't yet had any positive result. Startup/Shutdown in scheduler are working if this i
  17. Hi I am planning to go with the same motherboard, what would be a nice choice for an additional AHCI SATA 8 ports controller?
  18. I read its limit is 16 ports, am I right?
  19. Thank so much! Just a couple of questions: 1) i3 8th series is fine but 9th is still compatible or not? 2) If I buy a Syno 10GbE card, will this be compatible OOB? 3) which SATA controller PCIe cards are the best for compatibility? let's say 4 or 8 ports would be fine. have a nice day!
  20. Hi all, I'm a newbie, I read the FAQ on hardware but not found anything specific. I'd like to have some advice on the best hw configuration as I'm starting from scratch. What "best" means to me? I'd like to have a NAS with 8 or more HDDs (at least 4 ports on mb, I can use both ITX or M-ATX) and a NVMe/SSD as cache would be nice. A future upgrade to 10GbE would be nice too. And I need enough power to transcode 4K with Plex srv. I hope this is the right subforum for this kind of Q. Thanks in advance to everybody who'll answer. Have a nice day
