    280+ TB of storage..


    haha, well go big or go home... idk....

    I put 4 of them in my synology for the ultimate plex vault. the other 12 will be backups and in the supermicro, assuming I get it working. The HDDs are large like borderline on the form factor they wont fit in my lenovo 12 bay machines, the supermicro was a special buy just for them.

    You want to download the whole internet?


    Not enough information provided to offer an opinion.

    yes i can format the drives in windows and they work on a usb to sata connection on a different pc. I cant partition anything that big with ext4 on windows so I was just gonna do it in omv. They are currently ntfs formatted but not showing in omv.

    I just bought 16x 18TB EXOS drives and I cannot get them to be recognized on my new supemicro server. I was wondering if OMV supports HDDs that size? Or maybe I need to recheck all my connections?

    I didnt mean to down "the community" or "unofficial extras"... i just meant that If the update is coming straight from OMV then I would feel comfortable that is it a safe DL to have on auto.

    Its kinda like with ubuntu, I dont download the community maintained stuff, because the Ubuntu official stuff works just fine. That may not always be the case, but it has been my experience (limited though it may be)

    Add whatever plugin you have installed to the list.

    At the moment I dont have any plugins that I would want to include or exclude from an update. Like I was saying, I just do the updates that pop up on my dashboard as updates available.

    What I should clarify is that I dont put a tick mark in the "Pre-release updates" or "Community-maintained updates" boxes on OMV bc I am honestly not sure what it does. :P

    When I ran the omv extras code on putty the last few lines said. This was on a new build/install.

    Is this going to be a problem. Never seen this come up before.

    I would like to have an option for Automatic Updates. Maybe not for all updates due to a possible critical failure... but more automatic updates bc there have been alot of updates pushed in the last month or so. It would be nice if they just were updated on their own.

    I understand the following:

    "OMV only installs security updates automatically, but everything else is not installed by intention because an update might cause a failure. This decision to install those updates must be on the user side."

    Maybe have this as an option rather than hard coded. I tend to trust updates from omv. I wouldnt enable the community or unofficial extras updates, but just the omv upgrades at lease would be a nice option.

    What you are asking for is impossible in my opinion especially when I am a horrible teacher.

    aww... cmon man, you aren't that bad. lol .. nah really though you are pretty good at teaching or trying to teach those who don't want to be taught. Like you said:

    Many noobs are noobs because they don't want to learn more and just want answers.

    And that is the key right there.

    You try to guide people to the answers by letting them find the answers themselves. That is actually a great teacher methodology.

    IFF you had the correct pupils. IF only...

    I am willing to put in the time and learn because I enjoy it. Now do I like having an answer served up to me on a silver platter.. sure who doesn't. But at the same time I will take the notes you give me and run with them also.

    As in the case of SMB though. I feel as though I have hit a wall. Ive googled and forumed to death. This is one of those cases where I would just like to be spoon-fed an answer.haha I will be more than happy to tell you every single piece of hardware in my personal LAN OR any other info to help give you "full access" if that is even possible remotely. If it isn't possible, I will keep on keeping on just without my goals being met unfortunately.

    But the point I was trying to make is that you actually are a good teacher. And we are lucky that we have you. And we are lucky that you are so interactive/active in the forums.

    Lastly.. and oddly enough I may or may not have not looked at the "guides forum or omv wiki or omv-extras wiki".... Well I dont know if I have. I have looked at so many pages on SMB and OMV it has all kinda turned to mush between my ears at this point. I couldn't tell you what I have and have not looked at specifically. It would be a long list though. Maybe I should get back to basics and start over in my quest to conquer 10GBe SMB instead of going to the farthest of reaches or the most exotic answer selections. In my experience the answer is the most obvious one or it is staring you in the face.

    You can blame OMV all you want but

    Im not blaming OMV, just questioning it.

    between most OMV users only having gigabit and them being noobs, you are unlikely to get what you want.

    This is true, shouldn't the forum try to bridge the gap though. you have guys like you aaron and BernH that seem to be on a whole other level. and then you have the omv "noob" community. your word not mine. Anyway, if there were a way to get everyone on some middleground like not noobs but maybe not experts either... but just intermediate users. I think this could be possible with the proper tutorials and/ the like. IDK just thinking out loud here.

    @BernH your two lines of code seemed to help a good bit when run by themselves.

    I dont need any of the options I had before it seems. Those are below:

    protocol = SMB3
    min receivefile size = 65536
    write cache size = 524288
    use sendfile = true
    aio read size = 262144
    aio write size = 262144
    getwd cache = yes
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY
    read raw = yes
    write raw = yes

    Using just the two lines you provided jumped me from 300MB/s-400MB/s closer to 375MB/s-415MB/s and even bouncing up to 603MB/s for a split second. So I am grateful to know there are more settings out there that can have a significant impovement on speeds. Yet, I am still just as confused as ever on what else to add to get me to a full 10GB transfer. But we are slowly getting there I think.

    server multi channel support = yes
    interfaces =;speed=10000000000           (adjust ip address to your server ip.)

    @BernH Thank you for answering my actual request and giving me the opportunity to try new and exciting settings in SMB.

    Also, though

    @BernH I wonder why SMB is single threaded after all this time. Pretty much all modern computers have multiple cores and threads if I am not mistaken?? I mean, I am running machines that aren't even under manufacturer warranty at this point and even they have multi-thread multi-core. Makes me think there is a much better way. Like maybe the iscsi you mentioned OR NFS that @ryecoaaron runs with a different kernel.

    There has got to be a better way. Im just trying to get 10GB ethernet speeds here. How hard should this be if Linus Tech Tips is getting 100GB on his setups. Even before that he was getting 10GB speeds on their systems with very little effort it seemed. Maybe that hard stuff was on the B roll footage. And they werent using OMV either.. HMMM?? I digress.

    As I mentioned in your other thread, I am using the default options but I really don't use Windows and use nfs 99.9% of the time.

    @ryecoaaron I still value your input, I am also still reading up on the whole kernel situation and now NFS is on my to-read-about list.

    Care to give a 30 second tl;dr rundown on NFS?

    If not its all good.. you have probably posted it elsewhere anyway.haha

    Thanks for your input guys , cannot wait to try out your code @BernH.

    Is that your code in its entirety? Or just a snippet? Thanks.

    Hopefully there is more code to come from other users.

    I feel kinda nosey/jealous ;) of people getting 10GB speed transfers on OMV, since I believe it is possible and I want to believe it is possible on my machines too. 8o

    Interesting, Ill have to look into this single thread thing because I dont fully understand

    I just figured running from my gaming machine with NVME to the NAS 10x SSD RAID6. It would do better.

    But again, Ill have to look into the single thread thing.

    Thanks for your input.

    Anyone else out there?

    Is it possible to enable a details tab in the Properties of a file or folder on and OMV SHARE? I can clearly see in windows that when I right-click and go to "Properties" there is a TAB that says "Details".

    Actually there is even a "Details" Pane (like the "preview pane") in Windows.

    I cannot seem to get this Tab enabled on my OMV shares. Is this a limitation of OMV or a limitation of EXT4 or something totally different that I am not thinking of.

    Look forward to seeing what you guys have to say.

    Would this be a good addon for OMV7.x? Is it even possible?

    I wonder if I reformatted my system to NTFS, would it work.

    Although I have no Idea how I could set up a RAID configuration if I used NTFS, so that might be out of the question.

    Anyone have any experience with using the details tab or pane.

    I think it is mostly underutilized anyway. I just like to use it to check a videos quality and the 5Stars system could be useful.

    IDK. Thanks again.

    If you have a good working set of SMB extra options for 10GBe (10 Gigabit Ethernet) please post them.

    I would love to see what everyone is working with for these options because I cannot seem to extract the full 10GB out of my homelab.

    (More like 300MB/s - 400MB/s)

    I have 10GB NICs 2x 10GB Switches all Cat6-Cat8 Cables and patch cables.

    Anyway, please share your extra options if you are successfully running SMB at 10GB/s speeds.

    Thanks in advance.
