Performance - Gen10 MicroServer BETA

Recommended Posts

Joe_Miner

My earliest Configuration was just one drive -- the Samsung 840 Pro attached to SATA Port5 for my OS drive

Later I added a Corsair Force GT to SATA Port6 (CDM comment bar incorrectly says Force 3) -- I enabled Hyper-V and loaded a VM on the Force GT

OK, a 60GB SSD was too small for me to add much in the way of VMs so I next added two 300GB VelociRaptors to Bays 1 & 2 (i.e. PORTS 1 & 2) and created a Software RAID0 with them for more VMs

I next added 2 5TB Enterprise drives in Bays 3 & 4 (i.e. SATA Ports 3 & 4) and created a Software RAID1 -- later I would add a number of video and large files simulating a home database

Not long after that I replaced the Corsair Force GT with another Samsung 840 Pro 256GB:

I changed out the 5TB drives with two 1TB 2.5" RED WD10JVCX using Icy Dock EZConvert's in Drive Bays 3 & 4 (SATA Ports 3 & 4) and did a RAID1 with them

I next moved the Samsung SSD on PORT6 from the ODD Bay to a modified SDM R3.5 and mounted that on the side of the PSU - I didn't notice any change in performance but I did notice that like with the Gen8 there was enough space to mount a 15mm thick drive on the modified SDM R3.5 and still be able to get the cover onto the Gen10 MicroServer BETA

I next wanted to try removing the Samsung SSD off of PORT6 and replacing it with a WL500GLSA8100 500GB 10K RPM 2.5" HDD using the modified SDM R3.5 Mounted on the side of the 200W PSU

    Hi Joe

    thanks for sharing.  I want to buy the same machine for me. I'm wondering if I need to change the bios or do other tricks in order to let the OS run over a separate SSD like you did. My plan is to have four HDD and a separate SSD for the operating system. Could you let me know if it natively boots up from a 5th sata interface?  another question did you do any experience regarding the noise level and can you let me know what it is?

    Nope.  Pretty much like the older G7's -- but with no BIOS mods or tricks needed.

     

    I thought it was quiet unless I worked it hard then I could hear the fan spin up.

        I installed a BU50N Blu-ray 4K drive in my HPE ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer.  Worked out well, I'm using PowerDVD13 -- I had to restart the "Machine" several times before it saw the ODD but "Machine" finally figured it out.

        Hi there,
        I hope this topic fits here just right.
        So a few days ago, I moved my Microserver Gen8 to a friend's place and resetted it.
        When we set it up with new disks, the raid-creation in OpenMediaVault (Debian 9.6) failed.
        `smartctl` tests passed just fine though and vendor-tools also didn't report any drive errors.
        What happened?
        - I start the Raid creation via `mdadm` and after a while (random blocks and times), it fails and the second disk seems to fail (e.g. sda and sdb are creating a raid, then sdb gets "kicked out" and reread as e.g. sdd, sometimes even with only a few GB of space instead of 3TB).
        I tried attaching the second disk on ata2 and ata3, but it keeps failing. The one on ata1 works just fine though.
        I tried different disks and vendors, but get the same results.
        There are some errors in `dmesg`, but I don't know what they mean. I pasted them here: https://pastebin.com/raw/XASQJ6cy
        What I did here: I stopped the raid to re-create it, but then didn't do anything for a while and the error still came up.

        Can someone help me with this? (As a wild guess, I'd say that somethings wrong with the SATA connections at least on ata2 and ata3).

        Thanks in advance
