I am experiencing very long waiting / response times (about 15 min) of the OMV web gui to come back after changing an option and clicking "save, apply, yes" in the web gui.
My Buffalo Linkstation Duo WXL NAS (2x 2 TB, about 7 years old, 128 MB RAM, ARMv5 ) surely isn't very fast, but this seems odd. Is it an issue with Debian, OMV, my Mozilla Firefox or anything else?
The NAS is connected via LAN to a router with DHCP, although it always gets assigned the same IP address.
After one of the two HDDs died some time ago, I decided to:
- installed a new NAS-suitable HDD (4 TB, as this is the minimum size to come with rotational vibration sensors) with proper partitioning scheme according to the "standard Buffalo scheme" (4 partitions and unpartitioned rest: /boot, /root, swap, / and the rest is for RAID 1 with the other old HDD, shall get partitioned during RAID 1 setup),
- installed a stable Debian 10 armel kirkwood (4.19.0-9 marvell kernel, per network-console) onto this new HDD
- installed OMV 5.4.6-1 (usul) and OMV-extras
- did some basic configuration in the web gui
So the NAS has 1x 2TB and 1x 4TB now (RAID 1 planned, 2 TB of the new HDD will remain unused until the other old HDD gets exchanged, might be soon)
Would be glad for any purposeful info or tips...
