    Thanks for the quick response! Interesting to know that the same lack of optimization are in both versions of OMV. I wonder why the 1-core, 512MB board is stable as a rock with release 3 and the 4-core, 1028MB board is so much less stable with OMV4? I'll definitely look at the crontab and rc.local. Thanks for that tip


    I'd love to replace it with a real computer, but I'm living in Africa and it will be months before I'm somewhere where I will have access to reasonably priced options.


    Given my current constraints, do you have any suggestions about the best way to install OMV3 on my PI3B+ to see if it has the same problems? Thanks!

    I have been running OMV 3 on a Raspberry Pi model B for about 2 years. It has been running great -- very slow throughput, but solid as a rock and more than fast enough for my home NAS needs.


    I recently got a Raspberry Pi 3B+ and decided to upgrade to OMV4. Getting it set up and running was fairly painless, and I was immediately seeing a five-fold increase in throughput (from 2MB/s to 10 MB/s)! BUT, when multiple devices are accessing the device (one downloading and one copying a file, say, or copying a file remotely and doing an rsync --dry-run locally), the throughput drops to 0 after a few seconds and remote devices trying to access get an unexpected network error. I assume that OMV isn't feeding data to the connection for long enough that the network request fails, because retrying always works for a few seconds before failing out again.


    I have read most of @tkaiser's posts (thanks for the info!) on the RaspBerry Pi and know that it is "the worst SBC" for running a NAS. Point taken. However, it's what I have access to. Since the model B (1 core, 512MB ram) works really really well even when I have 7 or 8 devices streaming from it, and the #B+ (4 cores, 1GB ram) seems to choke on multiple streams, I'm assuming that somehow OMV4 has been optimized to pretty much use everything it can get up to a certain point (I realize this could be very wrong, and would love to hear other thoughts). So:


    >>Is it possible in some way to 'cripple' omv 4 so I can keep it's speeds below what the 3B+ can handle (interesting the load never goes past 3 in the performance statistics)?


    >>Am I completely off base and should be looking in a different place for trying to fix this?


    >>Barring that, anyone know where I could find an OMV3 Image for the RaspBerry Pi that works like the omv4 image created by tkaiser? Or should I just try to install it manually through a distribution of Raspbian stretch?


    Thanks!

    Fascinating. Thanks for that. I've always assumed I had the 2b (I distinctly remember buying the 2b?), but I opened the case and sure enough -- just a straight up raspberry Pi. Imagine my surprise.


    Interestingly, they work really well with OMV3. I was hoping to upgrade, since my install seems to be fubar. Maybe I'll be able to find an image of OMV3 somewhere.


    thanks!

    I have downloaded the Raspberry pi image from sourceforge 3 times and successfully used it to install OMV 4 on my Pi 3B+ following the instructions. It's working great!


    I also need to install it on a Pi 2b. I have tried multiple SD cards, burning the image from multiple downloads, always using etcher with full verification. Regardless, I always get "Kernel Panic: Attempting to kill init!"


    (Attachment seems to cause the post to fail, so here is a link)


    Nothing happens after that, no matter how long I leave it connected to the internet. Keyboards are non-responsive. (I've tried multiple PI 2Bs as well as multiple keyboards).


    I'm not sure where to go from here. Any thoughts or guidance would be welcome!
