DSM 6 does not use all cores?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a HP ML150 gen9 with a Xeon E5-2609v3 running DSM on Jun's loader 1.01.

 

But when i run cat /proc/cpuinfo it only shows cpucores:1 but it should be 6 cores.

 

Any Idea's?

 

Thanks for your help :smile:

Use search? Discussed already a lot of times hard limit of 6 cores!

What i understod the limit should be 8 cores for DSM?

 

But i can only see 1 Core in total, but the CPU has 6 Cores.

 

I have searched the forum but can't find anyone that has this problem?

 

See screenshot when i run cat /proc/cpuinfo.

Are you bare metal? I have a E5 2630l v3 which is 8 cores. It worked with all 8 on the old loaders, I am running Jun's loader as well, I will check Friday.

 

Since Plex is still working fine I assume they are all being used.

Yes, I'm on bare metal too :smile:, Ok, that's great, yeah i have had problem with transcoding when i use subtitels in Plex since update to DSM 6, so that is why i checked the cores.

 

I did not have that problem when running DSM 5.2.

I can confirm mine shows 8 core available on my E5 2630L V3. I am bare metals as well.

 

I have hyper threading turned off so all physical cores are used. 8 is the max core count that can be utilized.

Hi,

 

I have tried to add screenshot of the info i got of when i run the commands, but can't attach the due to attachment quota.

 

But maybe you can show me what info you got on your CPU when you run the command?

 

But to wrote down the info i get on the CPU see below:

Hi,

 

I use DSM 6 + Jun's Boot loader 1.01 with CPU Xeon E3-1270-v3. I have 4 cores without hyper threading, 8 cores with HT ON.

 

Try disable HT in BIOS - if you have 6 core Xeon, with HT its 12 cores, Synology (Xpenology) can handle only 8 CPUs.

Try: grep "MHz" /proc/cpuinfo

 

You should see how many cores you're using and their frequency.

 

I have an i7 4790 with 4 physical cores and 4 logical ones and it show I'm using all 8 cores.

change the syno_hw_version=DS3615xs to RS4017xs+

 

change the syno_hw_version=RS4017xs+ in the grub.cfg

 

this will show 8 cores in the dsm., but i think you may update with the RS4017+  DSM.pat file .

 

 

example:

 

set common_args_3615='syno_hdd_powerup_seq=0 HddHotplug=0 syno_hw_version=DS3615xs vender_format_version=2 console=ttyS0,115200n8 withefi elevator=elevator quiet'

No. If you use the RS4017xs+ .pat file it will simply not work. Loader wont even allow you to install it. The loader was not meant to work with RS4017xs+. Only with 3615xs, 3617xs and 916+.

I have extracted the rs4017+ pat file and  copied the zImage and rd files to the usb second partition and in first partition, I changed the grub file .. it worked for me . 

 

And also checksum files

What did you do with the checksum files? I know that they're in the .pat file but what did you exactly change?

EDIT:

parition1:

set common_args_3617='syno_hdd_powerup_seq=0 HddHotplug=1 syno_hw_version=RS4017xs+ vender_format_version=2 console=ttyS0,115200n8 withefi elevator=elevator quiet syno_port_thaw=1'
 

 

parition2:

copy grub_cksum.syno , checksum.syno to the second partition where zImage and rd.gz files are. 

 

and once it boots, install the same RS4017xs+  DSM pat file.

Hi greetingsmymaster,

 

I'm a little confused to your last 3 post as to which statement is correct to install RS4017xs+.

 

I would like very much to get this installed, so could you give me a guide to the correct way please.

 

Thanks

Gordon

@Huberer Did you get the RS4017xs+ installed and running?

 

Thanks
