Hi, As you now when using a virtual environment to run the XPEnoloy the SMART is missing. The only change to run it is pass the Disk Controller to the VM using I/O passthrough. However, using the VMware ESXi with the Physical RDM, all SMART commands work inside a Linux VM. So, the conclusion is that the tools inside the DSM refuses to enable SMART when a non-conformant controller is detected. Then, to enable the SMART inside a VM the kernel needs to hack the identification of the Virtual Controller. As I feel this can be done inside the Jun's Loader. So, from here I like to request support for this. Please, consider it! Regards.
Hi, I've just got an XPEnology install up and running with Jun's loader under a Proxmox hypervisor. Everything seems to be working fine, persisting across reboots etc, but I'm just wondering where the DSM configuration data is stored? I have 4 SATA disks configured for direct passthrough and a RAID5 volume placed on them, and I boot the system using the synoboot.img from the loader. But where is all the DSM data stored? I can't see the synoboot.img changing and I don't know where else it would go.
I have Proxmox 5.1. Xpenology 1.02b loader; DSM6.1.4 Update 5. Intel onbard (AHCI) SATA controller passthrough. I have 3 SSD in RAID0 mode. What I notice is, the write performance on SSD is terrible. I've try to tweak Proxmox, and the Xpeno VM, but nothing seems to help. My VM config: args: -device 'piix3-usb-uhci,addr=0x18' -drive 'id=synoboot,file=/var/lib/vz/images/100/synoboot_jun2b_virtIO.img,if=none,format=raw' -device 'usb-storage,id=synoboot,drive=synoboot' bios: ovmf boot: 4 cores: 4 hostpci0: 00:17.0,pcie=1 machine: q35 memory: 6144 name: DSM6.x net0: virtio=00:11:32:xxxxxxx,bridge=vmbr0 net1: virtio=00:11:32:xxxxxxx,bridge=vmbr1 numa: 1 ostype: l26 scsihw: virtio-scsi-pci serial0: socket smbios1: uuid=7fda6843-8411-473f-91a5-xxxxxxxxx sockets: 1 I've tried to passthrough the VM without q35 machine type, and without PCE=1. Write performance is the same. What's strange is, the write performance was really good back in October, when I was still on Proxmox 5.0. So I want to ask everyone, how's your SATA passthrough performance?
