Unraid mover log

By HomerrOctober 25, in General Support. So I am kind of in the same boat here. None of the commands in this thread kill the mover. The rsyncs just keep coming back like zombies. Are there any other commands that can be used? Check my post above to see what I did. Basically, let it go until it finishes trying and failing to move files to the cache. Verify by watching the log.

Fix the offending share's cache settings. Finally, invoke the mover to move data back to the array. I second this. I am right now watching unRaid trying to move a large user share onto the cache due to using - wrongly - Prefer settingand of course failing due to lack of space.

Have tried pkill mover and killall rsync to no avail. It seems that my option is to wait it out - which I will then have to. Implementing a "Stop Mover" function would be very helpful. Im also here with a full SSD due to wrong use of Prefer for cache drive and a mover trying to move every single file onto the already full SSD disk.

Does not manage to stop the mover. You can post now and register later.

But I'm having this problem that mrjofus posted in and there still doesn't seem to be any real implementation to the issue.

I am stuck in the loop now myself. Can't stop the array to add space because I can't kill Mover. Meanwhile I'm being spammed with red low disk space alerts every few minutes. And I don't really know what I'm doing at the command line so I'm not going further there. As a new user to this product I can't understate how much this feels like a design flaw.

Well, after getting around 70 messages all day about how my array was full I got home and Mover had stopped finally. I was able to stop the array and add disks. Did you try searching the boards for an answer?

Yes, I tried 'killall rsync', that's from the thread I first referenced. Nothing happened. Seemed like it should have work.

I did search further and try another command promt input can't find it atm that seemed to just turn off the mover in the scheduler. But scheduler did run until apparently it could fit no more on the array drives, each drive had less than 5mb left. Still, I think a 'Stop Mover' button would be a great addition. I know I was a bit stressed over this and how I was going to solve the issue while the Mover was running. That's useful to know, Tom. Trouble is, I'll probably have forgotten it by the time I ever need to use it.

Thanks for the follow up! Just an update, 'pkill mover' is nearing 3 hours and over gb moved and not stopped Mover yet! Never had to stop the mover before. We'll see about adding some kind of cancel control. Not really recommended though. Why do you want to cancel it?

I want to stop the Mover so that I can stop the array to add another drive. I don't have oodles of spare drive capacity and I'm still transferring data in to the array off one drive through another PC and then adding that drive in to the array.

Mover wants to do it's job and wants to move data, but it can take a few hours to over a day to do this. Just makes this chaos of moving to this new OS a bit stressful and drawn out.By PducharmeOctober 20, in General Support. Hi, a while ago, I tested all version of Unraid 6 beta. I think one plugins did fill all the LOG partition and now, everytime I install a plugin or update itI always get lots of error because it is full.

I remember that it was a Plugin that did that I think proftpd, but not sure. I reboot the Unraid when I upgrade version, so I did reboot it a lot since all beta version. This problem is present since beta2 or beta3. It never emptied itself. Theres posts and threads in the forums here that gives instructions on how to make it larger. Typically this is handled in modifying your go file. Anyway, I put the command in my go file. Has that part of Dynamics been fixed in 6?

Increasing the size to doesn't fix the problem, at least it didn't in v5, as it only delayed the brick wall of running out of space. Usually about 1. Inconvenient when I don't reboot often, usually only twice a year to blow the dust out and clean the filters. I couldn't see anything about increasing log file size - is this something I need to do as well? I didn't increased it before yesterday, except that my LOG partition was full, I didn't had any issue with it. Also, If it's not speficied in the install instructions, I wonder if it's only on certain hardware that would generate more logs?

Here is the command to insert in the go file. You can also run it on a live server without reboot and the LOG part increase right away. If true, you suggest that it get up to Mb in seconds after a reboot? I thought that the log partition was only a ramdisk. It says tmpfs if you run mount in a terminal, so I don't think this have changed.By SquidApril 8, in Plugin Support. A simple little plugin mainly created for my own purposes that will let you fine tune the operation of the mover script.

After installation any guesses as to how to install the plugin? Nice Job Squid. Plugin morphed into an actual Plugin that makes it really easy to click a few buttons and be done with it, but at the same time we can simply disable the mover without having to hack some code to change the cron.

Here's a little screen shot with the Help menu enabled so others can check it out. Move nightly everything, but once an hour or whatever schedulemove files if it's hit a threshold. For when you are copying larger amounts and it would get too full to wait for the nightly move for example. Unless I interpret it wrong, the plugin threshold option will not ever move if there is usage below the threshold.

At the same time, I removed the option for Move Now follows the rules, as it didn't really make much sense in retrospect.

Currently using the user script to run mover at a percentage in addition to the scheduler running mover daily. You would leave mover running on whatever schedule you want say every hour.

The rules for when to move are evaluated at that schedule. I noticed that the new mover in 6. No and no. Although you can turn on my own logging which will state when its going to skip running mover and when it does start it. No logging on when its done though.

That'll work. Every hour it checks. You don't have a force move cron set, so mover will only ever execute when the drive is at that threshhold. BTW, you should disable Mover logging. It's the only option I enabled. Bug, user error? Can I check of this plugin is running?

I can't find any comment's in the log. So I suspect it's not running. Ah, so I have to set " Force move of all files on a schedule" to yes and set a time? You can post now and register later.

It is particularly useful for users who write data to the array on a regular basis, and can also be used as a scratch disc for certain applications. The feature was introduced in version 4. A cache disk is a hard drive that is not part of the normal parity-protected array.

You may read data from or write data to the cache share just as you would any other disk share. As the cache disk is outside of the parity-protected array, writes will be much faster, but of course if this disk fails, all its data may be lost.

The real power of a cache disk is realized when User Shares are enabled. Hence any object — a file or directory - created on a user share is created on the cache disk provided that enough space is available. Therefore, when you browse the files on a user share, the listings will transparently include objects on the cache disk as well as those on the other data disks.

The default schedule is to wake up at AM every day. As there is a lag between the time objects are created on the cache disk, and when they are moved to the array, it may be desirable to disable the cache disk for certain shares. Each user share therefore has the option to disable the use of the cache disk for that share. This section is present on the Share Settings page when user shares are enabled, and a cache disk is present and formatted. If there is less than this amount of free space then the object will be created on the array instead.

The emphasis here is on 'perceived'. The real, behind-the-scenes write speed of your unRAID server is unchanged by the addition of a cache drive. A cache drive simply grants you the fastest transfer that your hardware will allow by deferring the inevitable parity calculation until a later time am server time, by default. How much of a write speed improvement can you expect to see from using a cache drive? That depends on your hardware. Slower hardware will of course result in slower transfer speeds.

Without a cache drive: unRAID 4. With a cache drive: unRAID 4. So generally speaking, a server with a cache drive has write speeds x faster than the same server without a cache drive.

The Mover is a utility that runs periodically to move files off the cache disk and onto parity-protected data disk s. If Mover logging is enabled, the mover will record all its activity to the system log.

Unleash Your Hardware

By default the mover is scheduled to run every day at AM. This may be changed by defining your own Mover schedule string in crontab format. If the mover finds no files to move, and the disks are spun-down, the disks will not spin up. A warm spare is a hard drive that you have installed in your server to prepare for the eventuality of one of your other hard drives failing. It requires that the warm spare drive be as large or larger than your parity drive and your largest data drive.

When a drive does eventually fail, you simply stop the array via the Main pageunassign the dead drive via the Devices pageassign the warm spare also on the Devices pageand then start the array back on the Main page. At this point, your data from the dead drive will be automatically rebuilt onto your warm spare - this will take many hours, but your array and all your data is still available for use during this time though performance will likely be degraded.

However, why not use a warm spare as a cache drive while you wait around for another drive to fail? This application will of course add a bit of wear and tear to your warm spare, but nothing outside the scope of ordinary use. As a cache drive is outside of the parity-protected array, it can be used for alternate software and unRAID add-ons that need to read and write data often.

Examples include:. The cache disk can be used as scratch space for torrent client snews clients or web servers. The advantage here is that, for most of the day, only the one cache disk in the array needs to be spun up. Otherwise, at least two drives - parity and one data — will be spun up.Help with setup, configuration, disk issues, or any other questions about how to use Unraid.

Plugin/webGui/Mover Settings

Motherboards and CPUs Intel vs.By jeffreywhunterJune 27, in General Support. Other than looking at the cache drive in Main, is there a utility or command that can display the status of the Mover when its operating? The '-n' is the number of past lines to display. The '-f' means append output as the file grows. Very helpful. Exactly what I wanted to see. Shouldn't that decrease and freespace increase as mover operates - or will it only free up the space when complete?

Why I ask this is I was curious how cache works for continuous operations. Say I'm moving more files that fits on the SSD. If i start the copy to get the Fast SSD file transfer to cache, then immediately start mover, would it be able to 'stay ahead' of freespace. Essentially using the cache in both operations simultaneously.

It probably would impact performance, but was curious if it would work that way It wouldn't decrease. Let's say the move failed half way through because the target disk filled up. You wouldn't want to lose the file, right? A move operation is really more like a copy then delete. So this is an interesting update. I've stopped moving files and was expecting the cache drive used space to decrease. Instead I'm saw the opposite even after file transfer stopped. Its now getting smaller.
