well my omv is now raspberry based, so even orange pi zero plus will be a step up for me I guess lol I used raspberry pi and it's pretty sufficient for my need. It used to restart all the time and corrupt the sd image, but when I replaced the power with the official raspberry psu, it works wonder. But yeah, transferring files are s..l..o..w
Slow but useful when we want to try something like OMV, by using a RPi already bought for another old project.
Slow but reliable for home users, and some online friends/family.
Thx to OMV for using this king of hardware.
But yes, it can be useful to have the good advice from people who knows well those SBC, to find a good ARM product for NAS purpose driven by OMV, if it exists.
I saw Orange Pi 3 promising...?
4 models, more ram, USB3 x4, Gbits/s LAN, wifi.....
Price can be better than Rock64 may be ?
But I haven't taken time to read about this product and OMV support.
Odroid HC2 can be interesting ? As I see it's OMV ok !
Some tests somewhere ?
Login as root and execute the following command:
make the last line look like this:
test -t 0 && mesg n true
Got this notification too from a Raspberry Pi install...
So at the end of this file, I got
We have to change this line to :
test -t 0 && mesg n || true
This message just to be sure we have to replace the original line, and not adding a new one...
toy grade hardware
Do QNAP/Synology (for example) NAS are toy hardware too ? I usually see this kind of "professional" NAS (as many vendors/techies are calling this kind of hardware) on some little LAN at working places...
If the 2.5" transformer will be a success then they think about releasing a 3.5" version in a few months. In fact the PCB is prepared for this since there's already a 12V 2 pin header on the board and 12V traces are routed to SATA power connector. You can use this PCB already with a 12V PSU and a 3.5" disk.
Yeah a box with the 3.5" to screw can be nice to use for
Ratio Go/$ is better for customers.
Why would you want to build a RAID out of two disks? It's a bad idea and with those devices that feature only one high-speed data interface (USB3 in this case) there are always problems involved (either a hub which is something you REALLY DO NOT WANT between you and your RAID disks or a SATA PM as it's the case on Hardkernel's Cloudshell 2 with a lot of problems involved -- see my signature)
About btrfs, I remember reading some problems reported with usual tools to know "real" available free/used space on the HDD... I've not investigated more...
So raid1 can be a nice feature for High Availability... and why not raid1 with btrfs filesystems ?
Waiting to see this king of box for a 3.5", and why not with 2x SATA ports to build RAID ?
Have you heard something about this ?
So this means that we can trash our OMV instances and restart from scratch with official images?
no I think you can trash the RPi itself ! I'm not very good with english, but I think I've understood since a moment ago Tkaiser think the RPis are "crap" if used as a NAS (by many reasons written on this forum, 1st is USB/LAN bad performance, powerfailure, sdcard slow/broken... etc.), and now he's fed up with working on this board, if I'm not wrong.
maintaining OMV on crap
There is a topic Which energy efficient ARM platform to choose? where @richprim ask about low power ARM platforms.
It can be useful to find informations for finding a better hardware
for Christmas giftfor replacement, and being able to have good perf with OMV. (and keeping OMV compatibility hardware/software support...)
@tkaiser I don't want to say mistakes in this post about you and your work, please fix me if I'm wrong
Seems you're not using latest image? Can you please compare https://raw.githubusercontent.…aily/monitor-raspi-health with /etc/cron.daily/monitor-raspi-health in your installation? The problem has been reported ages ago and should be fixed (adding last line with 'exit 0').
If I check the current image here : https://sourceforge.net/projec…/Raspberry%20Pi%20images/
There is not "exit 0" at the end of this file. That's why I got this same problem when I've reset my sdcard with this image (and now it's in production). Is there another location where to find a RPi image ? When we click on Download link from the OMV website, it's going to this link...? This is why I'm sometimes lost about the "latest image" :p
Is there something else to check we are using a good image ? ARMbian instead of Raspbian based image ?
Thx for not bashing the noobs :p
run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/monitor-raspi-health exited with return code 1This is my /var/log folder files list
As previously said,
you can find the topic about it here run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/monitor-raspi-health exited with return code 1
Thx for sharing
Where have you found your Sata to USB adapter ? (I prefer ordering a good and working, already tested product )
Agree, additional holes can help.
And why not finding in the spare stock (if you have :p), an old heatsink from a vga or motherboard north chipset...? Sticking it with thermal paste
You can find cheap 1$ heatsink from China for example
Some thoughts about heatsink on RPi 3
I think 50°C is fine for this board.
All my RPi's v1 + v2 are all around this temp from a long time ago without any problem, inside a plastic case, fanless.
If I remember well, RPi v3 can be really hot than the others, so 50 looks like nice
On all topics on the web I see people with this temp...
My goal is to receive a mail when OMV is updating automatically the system.
I saw :
System > Notifications > mail service is set up, and mails are ok (test mail received + when admin is logged in)
On the other tab, I've checked "Software updates" : never received a mail about this
I think automatic updates are running behind on OMV ?
Because I saw unattended-upgrades in the system... If I'm not wrong, it's possible to use this to send a mail to an address when updating.
It can be useful if OMV can have this option available from the webinterface
Receiving a mail with logs can be really useful to follow "the life" of the box, and being able to quickly debug after an update
Or may be I have missed this option somewhere ?
(I'm feared to tune unattended-upgrades config file by hand, I don't want to mess the stable system)
multiply 10MB/s (Raspberry baseline) with 8 and 9 and you get the 80-90MB/s the specific combination is able to provide.
Haa ok thx for opening my eyes... it's absolutely explicit now.
Nice idea to give us some names on post n°7.
Are there somewhere some bandwidth benchmarks already done ? I'm interested to know how those little boards can work with Gigabits LAN + USB HDD attached to them.
