DSM 7.x Loaders and Platforms

It depends on which TCRP loader that you have used.  The "stable" versions of TCRP create a static disk map which does not support dynamic recognition of other ports.  Some dev versions have the ability to dynamically allocate ports as they are seen.

 

The GUI representation of the CPU is hard-coded to the Synology hardware of the DSM platform that you are running.  It is a cosmetic error.  Your CPU is still utilized up to the thread limit indicated in the matrix.

 

 

I have a question regarding the table, for example the synology FS6400 that supports Xeon Silver 4110 x 2 which would be: 16 cores 32 threads What happens if you make a similar configuration and put the DS3622xs+ in it, would the total number of cores be limited?

 

My theory is that no, since the kernel itself manages all the cores. The GUI will say something else.

You're absolutely right: the different DSM software version that target their different hardware versions aren't limited by thread or core count. The kernel will take care of scheduling threads across however many cores you throw at your build, you just won't see it in the System Information part of the web UI, as that's hard coded to the platform type and completely ignores what hardware is actually in the device.

 

Edit: my mistake, completely wrong, see Flyride's reply below.

 

NB. Resource Monitor within DSM, and any SNMP polling you do of the device will accurately reflect system load, though

This is not correct.  There is a finite number of threads configured by kernel parameter for each platform.  These are specifically highlighted in the table.

The kernel thread limit is almost always larger than the number of physical threads on the DSM platform.

 

In the case of the DS3622xs+ we can use 24 threads, even though the actual hardware only offers 12 threads.

Any additional threads available with your hardware (beyond 24) will be ignored.

Добрый день, мой первый пост.

В общем, сколько я не пытался установить 7.1 - пробовал различные варианты - результат один: Не удалось установить файл. Возможно, он поврежден.

Конфиг следующий:

Материнская плата GIGABYTE H510M H

Процессор Intel Pentium Gold G6405

2 х 8Гб память DDR4

SSD диск ADATA XPG SX6000 Lite 128ГБ

Seagate SkyHawk AI 4ТБ х 2 шт.

 

Прошу помощи, не пойму, куда копать...

I have a question about quicksync compatibility. My current build is a 9900k which I utilize for hardware HEVC trans-coding. DS918+ would be the most appropriate, but would limit me to 8 threads, while the CPU is capable of 16. I have no idea what type of work it would take to get quicksync compatibility on the DS3622xs+ image. Is this something that is possible post install with that option?

Hello, I'm trying to install the last version of DSM 7.1 in a HDD instead of USB.

 

I followed all the steps but when I start DSM on SATA or USB, it appears an error and I can't found my NAS with finds.synology.com

 

Any help?

 

 

Hi,

 

can you please be more specific ? Which platform on what kind of hardware, what king of error etc.

I attach the mesagge that appears on boot

 

The hardware is 4 GB RAM ddr2 and dual Core Intel proccesor, with an HDD which I installed DSM and a second one HDD to use of storage

Please correct me if I am wrong, but the only way I am aware of to boot TCRP and ARPL on bare metal is with a USB stick.

See here:

And here:

 

 

I follow the same steps but I install in the HDD the img of TCRP to boot in because I have problems with my computer detecting the usbs to boot.

 

When I reach the step of 

./rploader.sh identifyusb

it doesn't show anything. How can I change the values of VID/PID to the HDD?

Any way of asking grub to boot into tcrp loader mode for "next boot only". Assuming my starting state is a fully/normal booted up xpenology baremetal.

I want to attempt something remotely and dont want to manually and permanently set the default boot menu to be tcrp incase something goest wrong.

I do have the capability of remotely power cycle the box. 

i know in standard grubg we can use "grub-reboot" followed by the entry we want to use for next boot but i cant find where the grub boot binary is located in tcrp.
