I thought I was joking when I said it would take a while to run the test on the WD. I was more accurate than I thought. Holy shit it is slow, and i'm only doing a 1GB test.

I feel like I'm in the dark ages compared to you two. Old MSI G45 m/b with Z87 chipset and a i7-4770K. Think it was built in 2014-ish.

Samsung 860 EVO 1TB:

Oddly, my WD Black 1TB (7200rpm) had worse numbers than the WD Blue (5400rpm). Both are about the same in space utilization.

Maybe once my samsung 980 has served its purpose I can toss it in here and do a fresh install

I hate you fucks.

I've been trying to avoid buying an NVMe drive because I don't /need/ it but I sure as hell /want/ it now that I have a system that supports it. My system is entirely SATA SSDs already so buying an NVMe would be for the gaming drive and replace the SSD currently.

Stop it.

I'd like to as well, but with my old setup I'm not even sure I would benefit from an NVMe.

One of the resident geniuses would have to help me (or tell me) whether or not it would be worth it, or if the hardware would fully utilize it. I'd need a PCIe expansion card version since the m/b doesn't have an m.2 slot.

Got some interesting results on the work laptop. And, duh, the drive type is right there for me to see:

Odd that the number differ so much between the two options.

Ugh fucking power loss this week killed one of the proxmox servers. Or at least won't boot properly.

Luckily/unlikely is it was only hosting freenas, so might just finally update to truenas and run it on bare hardware.

I haven’t tried truenas scale yet. It’s still in beta.

but it’s way more capable with lots more features while still riding on a rock solid ZFS file system.

Importing pools is easy as hell. I've done it multiple times.

Go to Storage > Pools > Add..

....Import an existing pool. It'll search and then you just select it and add it back.

You'd have to setup any shares or other things like Mount Points in Jails again, but the data, file systems, and permissions will all still be there.

PSA remember to read the release notes to save yourself a few hours of work. :rofl:

Installed truenas, imported zfs pools....couldn't access data on all the drives, only free space.

Well... turns out if you are going from version 11 to 12, you need to make sure to clear out the root permissions or you won't have access to the files.

Luckily its just a few commands, delete/re-add the pool and setup all the shares again to fix it.

I have most things up and running, still dealing with a couple permission issues.

Also have a data folder that shows up in a windows share...but is not accessible by the truenas Linux install?? Yet the share is hosted by truenas... No clue wtf is going on there but I need to change the permissions on it from truenas but it doesn't see it. Its read only on windows side which is my problem.

Those Hibatchis are usually pretty good.

You couldn't get me to buy 'gates if I was storing white noise on them.

HDD's kept in good environments have a useful lifespan from 40k to 60k hours (5-7 years)

If the drive is kept cool, and never idles (parks head and spins down) then it'll last a very long time.

Spin Up/Down increases risk factor for head contacting surface of platter as it rides on the boundary layer of air when the disk is spinning. However, parking the head, and spinning down the drive increase the chances the head will contact the platter.

My original 8TB disks are at 43k hours right now. I expect to run them another 2 years or so. But the second a single one of those 6 disks has a failure, they are ALL getting replaced.
