Questions About Server Hardware and ZFS

The testing was done on a windows machine with an i7 4770, 16gb ram, and the file was stored on an SSD. I also noticed the same problem on our older roku 2, but assumed the issue stemmed from being old.

And its transcoding? Not trying to direct play? Direct Play can be very taxing if you're playing 1080p DTS content without a DTS direct receiver.

Alright, ill contact amazon for a return. The past 2 seagate drives I ordered from them have gad bad blocks from day 1, I don't understand the problem. I have never had great luck with seagate drives as far as lifespan is concerned, but I'm surprised to see any brand new drives with bad blocks.

 

General consumer drives arent validated, so are more likely to be DoA when received from a vendor as compared to Enterprise drives. Enterprise drives are validated before they leave the manufacturer. One of the downsides to using *cheaper* drives.

How can I validate this? I was using a bog standard fresh install of plex server for testing.

Direct Play is a client side option. I don't use Roku so not sure myself - but this KB suggests its in your User Settings, then try setting Direct Play to Disabled:

Thank you, I will give this a try tonight! I have also noticed some audio sync issues with Plex, that are fixed by pausing the media and unpausing. Have you seen this/ heard how to fix it?

I would still check your system resources on the Plex Server - especially if it's a 4770 running off an SSD. Could be a problem with the system - very easy to test and rule that out, so why not?

 

Otherwise, hard to say. What codec and bitrate is the 1080p file?

No issues setting up jails, but you have to be mindful to mount persistent storage. As the base kernel for freenas updates the jail does not, and in order to update the jail you have to rebuild it - without persistent storage you'll loose everything. Which one might think "fine I'll leave it at a slightly older version of BSD" until the port requires a kernel update :-(. 

 

**Also what will the move to iocage mean for users using warden?

 

Moving to iocage you will be able to update the base of the jails.  There is supposed to be a tool to transfer warden to iocage.
