HDD 6: 600 GB WDC_WD6000HLHX2D01JJPV0

Total storage: 12.1 TB

 

 

Software and Configuration:
The server is running ESXi 5.5.0 but the VM that acts as a fileserver is running Windows Server 2012R2.
Some of the drives are mirrored but I should try to do something about my configuration so that all data is mirrored.


There are 2 drives in the case that arent connected because of the controller not supporting 8 SATA ports in ESXi. Considering buying a HBA.

 

Usage:
Storing personal files, backup and virtualization.

 

Backup:
The most important files are backed up to Dropbox. Trying to decide backup provider for everything.

Update #1  

 

Picked up 2 more 3TB TOSHIBA PH3300U on the cheap and this Evercool 5.25" to 3.5" HDD Expansion Unit off Amazon. Also added a noctua 80mm fan suspended behind the drives to help pull the hot air out, the Evercool unit pushes with its own 80mm fan. Previous 8 disk volume was erased and then all 10 disks were setup in another RaidZ2 volume. Was reading this a more optimal amount of drives for RaidZ2 anyway so it worked out great. I still cant get over how quiet this build turned out even with all the drives and fans, really pleased so far and extremely happy I finally built a dedicated server.

New Specs Below:

 

30TB Advertised, I am using a RaidZ2 10 disk volume for 21.8TB actual usable space. RaidZ2 provides 2 disks of parity so fairly safe in the event of a drive failure. Possibly might try RaidZ3 in the future.

Do you rip your blu-rays on another PC and just transfer them over to your NAS?

Indeed, I use an external Blu-Ray reader that's connected to the main PC.

RAIDZ2 is a funny thing. You're getting almost 22TB out of a 10-drive 30TB pool, I'm barely getting 21TB out of an 8-drive 32TB one.

That's 1TB less usable space with 2TB more advertised space. Go figure.

Interesting:

24e12/1024^4 = 21.83

So, 24 TB are pretty much 21.8 TiB. Give or take a bit for metadata, it seems rather

weird that you'd end up with 19.9 TiB (I'm assuming it's TiB, not TB?) of usable space.

I mean, obviously metadata will take up some space, but that seems like a lot of metadata.

On my own RAIDZ2 pool (6 x 3 TB), I seem to lose about 250 GiB (12 TB = 10.9 TiB, I have

about 10.65 TiB available).

@Cheatdeath on the other hand doesn't seem to lose any space to metadata (again, assuming

it's reported in TiB, not TB), which seems weird as well (good for him?).

So, yeah:

The TiB thing is kind of new to me, I had never heard of TiB till I started using FreeNAS.  FreeNAS reports 20.1 TiB usable and that should be about 21.8 TB correct? What's strange is I just noticed my CIFS share viewed on my desktop says 20.1TB, does it not realize that is TiB or what?

Ah, I see. 20.1 TiB is about 22.1 TB if I haven't miscalculated. As for CIFS, are

you using a Windows client? If I remember right, Windows says 'TB', but actually

means 'TiB'. That's why a 1000 GB drive shows up as 931 GB. It should actually

say 931 GiB, but it seems Windows doesn't want to confuse users by saying 'GiB'

(which, ironically, actually leads to confusion :D ).

So it seems you lose quite a bit of space to metadata as well.

I even missed the TB vs TiB thing and completely forgot how much space I had.  I thought I had 19.9 + 0.5 + 0.5, but it was 18.9 + 0.5 + 0.5.  So it's a full TB worse than my previously mentioned number.

Ignore The top 2 shares, those NASes are disconnected and shut down by now.

 

"Data" are the mirrored SSDs, so that's a different pool than the one that the HDDs are in.

 

"Video", "Software" and "Data_Backup" are the shares from the HDDs' pool.  I assigned 500GB to the latter 2 and let "Video" take the rest of the pool.  That's 19.9TiB total (equates to 21.88TB) out of a 24TB (+8 TB for parity) setup.  So the actual numbers are even worse.

I double-checked the list of drives, and all 8 HDDs are indeed online and part of the pool.

 

Should I backup my data and completely reconfigure the NAS to see what's going on there?  This is a LOT of lost space.

Hm, good question. It really could just be ZFS doing some sort of weird magic. But

honestly, I think for this question to be answered competently you probably need

somebody with knowledge of ZFS' internals, and I don't know too much about that I'm

afraid.

As long as pool integrity checks out I would wait with wiping until you have a good

answer or are confident that you won't get one. You could try serverfault.com

or if that doesn't help and you really want an answer, maybe even open an issue about

it on the github page for OpenZFS and politely ask if they might know anything about

this.

My household uses it for media transcoding and streaming (we have around 4 people in home all the time)

The high RAM amount is because I had a ton of extra RAM from an old custom-pc building business I had that I never got rid of when I got a new job.

Plex runs like a pro, we're running Deluge on there for seeding and leeching torrents.

Owncloud backs up our critical documents and photos.

4790K @ 4.4Ghz

Asus Z87 Gryphon mATX

LSI MegaRAID 9280i-24

24 x Seagate 3TB in raid 60 (~55TB)

1TB Crucial MX200 SSD (Boot + VM storage)

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

 

Fractal Node 804 mATX case.

 

Usage:

 

Runs VMs, stores backups.  Average RAM utilization is 16-20GB.  It sits in my laundry room running 24/7 with 95F ambient.  8 of the drives are internal to the case (+1 SSD), 16 are outside the case in a 4x4 configuration.  I could fit 5 drives in each cage, but airflow isn't great doing that way.

Fun Fact: the startup current of this many drives is something like 600W before settling to ~ 120W static.

Any reason for that particular configuration hardware-wise?

 

Why not go for a larger case that can hold more of your drives, or go for a small 8-12U rack box and slide a rack-mounted server in there?

 

I feel like it'd be worth the price to get a much more compact and aesthetically pleasing or just plain sensible build. (No offense)

Ah, okay.

 

I'm hoping the setup is over the washing machine on a shelf, not sitting directly on the washing machine?

 

I wouldn't like to see a drive spinning at 7,200 RPM while a washing machine thrashes it around a bit during a spin cycle ;)

Yeah I considered that.  It's above but half of the support is coming from the machines beneath them (the other half coming from the wall).  The machines are modern LG's though so they don't really vibrate a significant amount.  If I start seeing unusually high drive fail rates then I'll shock mount everything better than it is.

I think it's about time I move up the list.

I've expanded my Raid 6 array with an additional 4TB Seagate NAS HDD, which gives me a total of 20TB of raw data.
Here's a picture of the result if anyone's interested.

16TB of storage teetering on edge

 

I'm a bit of a jack of all trades, master of none. So my 'server' is a bit amateur, but sharing funds between that and my other pursuits is hard

 

Hardware
CASE: Silverstone Milo ML04B
PSU: 300W SFX
MB: GA-J1900n-d3v
CPU: Celeron J1900 
HS: Passive, onboard
RAM: 4GB DDR3L
RAID CARD: Semlos Sil3114
SSD: Kingston v300 120gb
HDD: 4x4TB RED
16TB Total


Software and Configuration:
Running windows server 2008R2, no arrays as of yet.
I occasionally scrape for all filenames just incase, most is replacable. what's left is backed up externally.

 

Usage:
Plex Server, OwnCloud, Steam IHS (rarely), IIS.

Backup:
Investing in CrashPlan

Additional info:
Next step is to get a new case and more drives, move away from Windows and make use of ZFS.

 

Photo's:

This is a (relatively) old photo, the drives are now mounted using SEDNA rubber stands, they stack quite well and fit the case perfectly. 

I also improved my cable management ;)
