How much RAM do you have installed in your unRAID server?


Recommended Posts

32GB... was thinking about 64GB so I can run a bunch of VMs within a lab type setting.

1x 8GB HP ECC in N54L.

1x 16GB Micron/Crucial ECC in main socket 1151 server.

 

I wanted to put another identical Crucial stick in the server last week but RAM prices have almost doubled in one year and all the sizes i wanted were out of stock.

 

These DRAM companies are now making huge profits, i will leave the purchase until prices return to "sane" levels :/

I had 4GB but I've been running into some spinup issues that I think are due to cache pressure so I expanded to 16GB.

26TB, dual parity, not running VMs or dockers. But I *do* have a time machine backup which makes approximately 3 billion tiny files.

You will want to make sure that this location is excluded from being cached then.

It is being excluded but I still have problems.
Part of it may just be cache_dirs itself.
I mentioned a possibly related issue in the cache_dirs thread but never got a reply.

80GB DDR4 ECC. Seems like an odd number but I won an extra ebay auction I wasn't expecting and rather than get rid I chucked it in on top of the 64GB I had planned for :)

Well as i was shopping ebay for my current setup i came across an offer i could not resist (it was just to cheap)
So now i have 2 2,3Ghz cores running and 96GB of RAM....

Had a Windows Server on it until last week but i come to love unRIAD (for now)

 

Plenty of Room for my Media Dockers and VMs for me to play with....

 

Still looking for stuff to do with all that power ;)

2 x 2.3GHz cores?   or 22 x 3GHz cores?

 

One sounds mismatched and one sounds awesome!

one of my unraid servers has 80 cores... the other , my main server has 40. They are both sufficient in their duties.
