    Well, the title pretty much says it all.
    Some details:
    I have a raidz1 on top of 5x1TB LUKS encrypted disks.
    It's still a test machine, but has been working well for the last couple of weeks.
    The disks are automatically decrypted at boot time, using /etc/crypttab with a remote access-restricted keyfile. There is also a small script I wrote in order to solve…nmediavault-zfs/issues/27. Nothing fancy.
    Even tough I Installed the luks and zfs plugins, I use them basically for monitoring purposes; most, if not all, of the work is done by CLI.
    The disk usage tab shows the pool and updates correctly but I can't get the Disk I/O to show. This isn't really a deal breaker, but still...
    I did stumble upon Disk usage tab for my ZFS pool has vanished from GUI ! but, to be honest, didn't really grasp all of it.
    dmesg, journalctl -b and syslog all refuse to comment at this time...

    Any clues or troubleshooting tips?
    Best regards,

    I use a rotating system of 3 external drives for backups. With the upgrade from OMV3->OMV4 I migrated my data to a encrypted (LUKS), redundant ZFS-pool. I do snapshots daily, scrubs monthly, backups weekly, one of the backup diks is always out of my house to have separation.

    For backups I use the USB backup plugin. I thought about encrypting my backups as well to have theft security. Setting up a encrpted device prevents me from selecting it as backup target within USB backup plugin. Is there a solution to use encryption with the plugin?

    Want to unlock my backup drives within GUI through password, after that the rsync job of backup plugin should start.

    I am working on making my server be automated without needing much attention and I am trying to get the S.M.A.R.T notification to work but I am having issues.

    Attached is my configuration of the notification config, I followed OMV's official guide using the Google SMTP server. (obviously I've added my information in where the generic information is shown)

    Attached are the issues I am seeing in the syslog.

    Any suggestions/ides would be greatly appreciated.

    It isn't that hard to build a own script! I wanted to backup my data to a overlay filesystem (mergerfs), but that didn't work with the USB Backup plugin. So I had to build something on my own. (Backup to multiple disks) You would have to: 1) create…
