I offload the on board sata to a 8 sata port card. ZFS with 2 vdev’s of 24TB each.
I suggest going any stable platform and run evrything in containers/vms, imho proxmox or centos/debian works wonders
Whoa dude! I would invest in a HBA card and some SAS forward breakout cables to increase your airflow through your drives.
Thank you, that does look like a good idea. I have 2 120 corsair fans in front, and 2 120 low speed fans blowing in from the side. But every little bit helps. I just got to figure out how to pass the zfs pools into the VM’s.
are you using ssd for a zpool log? e.g.
zpool add pool log mirror nvme0n1p1 nvme0n2p1
how does your zpool look like e.g. what’s your
zpool status returning?
Nice. I almost got that switch recently, but went with the 12+4 switch from Ubiquiti instead.
