Server thread.
What's sitting in your closet or basement?
What are you running?

Personally, I'm having issues with Transmission. It doesn't want to move completed torrents. Is it a problem with SickRAGE?
Oh, and I can't find a good UPnP software. Any recommendations? Tried MediaTomb, but it just made a mess of it.

don't bump so often.

I have a poweredge R610 but I plan on selling it and get something more flexible to use as a NAS since the 6x 2.5" drive slots are cancer in terms of storage. Not really sure what to buy though. Do I really need ecc memory for freenas?

What's your settings.json file? I've got a seedbox VM on my server using Transmission.
>>
>>46627641
I also have this box:

i5 760
16GB ddr3
A ton of different 3.5" drives

Is this viable for a nas?
>>
>>46627680
yea it's probably way overkill actually, depending what you're doing.

>are you encrypting?
>do you have aes-ni?

yeah, either of those will be fine for a homeserver.

Try using PS3 Media Server. It's the only thing that streams DLNA properly to my Samsung TV.

Wont need any encryption. I plan on torrenting+storing movies and then distribute them via plex.

Will ZFS be necessary at all?

Im also a bit worried that it won't handle the transcoding in plex.
>>
>>46627641
Add a Perc6, and a couple MD1000's. You'll be fine.

I hung 2 Perc6's off a 2950 and ran it as a 20TB file server, using 750GB drives.
>>
>>46627779
I can't speak to transcoding, but if you're not encrypting that frees up a lot of power and data bandwidth for the transcoding.

ZFS is nice if you have lots of ram, because it can prefetch and cache in the ram, and snapshots are nice for easy backups.

with 16gb of ram, I'd go zfs for sure, otherwise you would be wasting much of that ram.
