Please solve this!

this has been already addressed, see commit https://sourceforge.net/p/nas4free/code/3262. It will be in the next update.
you can still manually edit config.xml via tools -> file editor if needed.

I upgraded according the recommended way (boot live-cd, install pendrive, import config). When I now go to Disk>ZFS>Pools>Tools the complete UI hangs (100% reproducible). Command 'zpool status -x' shows that my Pool is healthy. In status I only have the status 'Some supported features are not enabled on the pool. The pool can still be used, but some feature are unavailable.'. I am a bit hesitant to execute 'zpool upgrade' as I guess I can then not go back to NAS4Free 10x branch anymore which worked perfectly stable for me.
Had a similar experience on 2 out of 3 N4F boxes upgraded from 10.3.0.3.3105 to 11.0.0.4.3252. Will go back to 10.3.0.3.3105 on the box which did not have the ZFS version update. May need to re-build the one that had the pool upgraded to ZFS ver 28 (painful and time consuming).
Strangely, just after booting with the Live-USB, the 'disks,ZFS, tools' works (no pool defined), but after doing the install to the 'final' USB and importing the previous configuration, it hangs the Web-gui. Tried to reinstall multiple times but with no joy :roll:
Update: Went back to 10.3.0.3.3105 on my bigger N4F box, where I did not update the ZFS version. This was done by boot from live-USB, install to same 16GB USB stick used for both 10.3.0.3.3105 and 11.0.0.4.3252, restore early config and everything is back to normal... :D

@oops741: I also updated two NAS4Free boxes the same clean way (livecd, install new pendrive, import config) and indeed one is working correctly and the other not. Also ZFS tools is working on the other (but coming up very slow). There must be something wrong with 11.0.04.3252.

@developers: Problem is that in case the systems hangs, I cannot ping it anymore and have to reboot it the hard way (power off). However after the reboot new logfiles are created and I do not have the old ones anymore. Is there some information I can check after restart of the system what could have caused the hangup?

The one where 11.0.0.4.325 had not issues has an older Gigabyte ga-p35-ds4 and a single ZFS pool. The 2 boxes that had issues are current socket 1151 motherboards with an extra Asmedia based PCI-E SATA controller and 2 ZFS pools each. If you did not upgrade the ZFS version using the Tools|Command (or SSH), then you should be able to go back to 10.3.0.3.3105. I found that if the WebGui hangs, if you have a monitor and keyboard connected directly to the NAS box, it is possible to usually reset the WebGui (11 on the menu), Restart (7) or Shutdown (8) rather than force a shutdown via the power button.

enable SSH (with "permit root login enable" to log as root), and conect from desktop client (eg: Windows using Putty), and save the logs after the webGUI hangs and before you reset it.

@Faulfg3: The system that hanged 2 times is on a 1150 board (ASRock E3C224D4I-14S with Intel Pentium G3258, having ZFS2 Pool with 10 x 4 TB HD). I have IPMI enabled, thus could always see the NAS4Free Console. Indeed when UI hangs, most of the times restarting the WebGUI helps. However I have had two occasions that the complete NAS4Free box hanged. With IPMI I could not even execute any NAS4Free Console command. Further I cannot connect with Putty to it in that case as ping to the NAS4Free box also does not respond. Currently I am clueless what causes this issue.

On my other upgraded NAS (ASRock B75 Pro3-M, having ZFS1 Pool with 5 x 3 TB HD) I have no issues.

I am having thus issue (random lockup) with NAS4Free box which has an Asrock E3C224D4I-14S motherboard. This motherboard has next features:
•Single socket H3 (LGA 1150) supports Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v3 series & Haswell i3, Pentium and Celeron processors
•4 x DIMM DDR3 1600/1333 ECC, max. 32GB
•1 x PCIe 3.0 x8
•4 x SATA3 by Intel C224 support RAID 0,1,5,10
•8 x SAS2 from 2 x mini SAS 8087 connector by LSI 2308
•2 x Intel i210, support Dual GLAN
•ASPEED 2300 for BMC controller, Realtek RTL8211E for dedicated IPMI GLAN
•4 x USB 3.0 ports (2 rear + 2 via header )
•5 x USB 2.0 ports (2 rear + 2 via header + 1 Type A)

Anything major changed beween 10.x and 11.x release regarding drivers for this? With 10.x release I did not had any issues.
On the other NAS4Free box (ASRock B75 Pro3-M, upgraded same way to 11.x) I do not have any issues.

Hard to say what is going on, but make sure you have flashed HBA to latest IT firmware if available, use latest motherboard bios version.
What happens if you reset to factory defaults and setup manual from scratch? No, config restore!

It has the latest IT firmware. This evening I will try to reset to factory defaults and setup manual from scratch again. I did follow the official procedure to upgrade (boot from LiveCD, install new pendrive and import config (from 10.x)), thus bit skeptic if this will solve the issue. But I will try and hopefully it solves the issue. On the other box 11.x branch is working good up to now.

found some hangs with Virtualization, please disable the option called "Intel Virtualisation Technology" in your BIOS to check if is the offending tip.

Thank you all for your help and pointers!

@raulfg3: OK will do that this evening when I am at home again. I notice in the manual that it is default enabled. Do you have an explanation why this has not caused any issues with 10.x branch?

I have disabled "Intel Virtualisation Technology" and recreated my complete configuration again (after reset to factory defaults). Now I need to monitor the system for some time and hope that no spontaneous hang-up will occur anymore.

This said I still encounter hang-up of the WebUI when I go to Disk>ZFS>Pools>Tools. Not a big deal (as I can use shell as well for my ZFS commands) and I can restart the WebUI from the console on the NAS4Free box, but I did not had this issue in the 10.x branch.

I also did a comparison between my previous configuration and recreated configuration and noticed next differences:

loaderconf:
Old one had next entries as well:
hint.acpi.throttle.0.disabled
hint.p4tcc.0.disabled

Further I have changed from "hiadaptive" (old) into "adaptive" (now) as Power Mode.

EDIT: Further I have now set monitoring with 11.x branch (did not had any RRD in the past). Can it be related to this?

:? NAS4Free still freezes random with 11.x branch on Asrock E3C224D4I-14S motherboard. I disabled "Intel Virtualisation Technology" in BIOS and recreated my complete configuration again (after reset to factory defaults), thus these parts can be ruled out. It happened after 1075 minutes. On the system itself (with keyboard/monitor attached) I could not even type anything anymore, thus no possibility to go to shell to 'rescue' the logging. The system also did not react on network ping anymore.

Going back to stable 10.x branch now as this worked correctly for this system.

Thank you! I had inserted

Code: Select all

printcap cache time = 0
Will see.
Any case I like idea of "disable any rescanning for new or removed printers after the initial startup. " I just do not plan any printers support on the NAS.

Went back to 10.3.0.3.3105 without any issues. With this software I can access Disk>ZFS>Pools>Tools.

PS: I noticed that 10.3.0.3.3286 was released but I do not see any release notes in this thread for it. Can you tell what changed between 10.3.0.3.3105 and 10.3.0.3.3286? When it is related to 11.x branch as well I can perhaps also upgrade to 10.3.0.3.3286 and check if that works stable. I know for sure that 10.3.0.3.3105 was stable for me in the past.

I checked my UEFI BIOS of my Asrock E3C224D4I-14S and it was already set to latest V3.20. BMC is set to 0.12.0 which seems unrelated to me.

What is the link of your blog? Do you have any BIOS setting recommendations?
Thank you for your help.

EDIT: to be sure I have updated BMC from 0.12.0 to 0.16.0. Can this be the issue?

I could not make much out of your blog, sorry ;-). Do you have pointer to exact point in your blog discussing it, as your previous link starts with 25 Dec. 2013.

It is not much to read :) Just general mention abt instability and recommendation to check BIOS - no even answer yet. But system is alike of your one - xeon, motherboard Intel server chipset

My UEFI BIOS was already set to latest BIOS version. Afaik BMC is only used for IPMI and unrelated (to be sure I have updated it now as well). Thus I encountered the random hang ups with 11.x branch of NAS4Free when I was already using latest BIOS. Disabling "Intel Virtualisation Technology" and recreating my complete configuration again (after reset to factory defaults) did not solve the issue.

For now I am back to 10.x branch and want to run it for a view days to assure that hardware itself is ok (BTW: I am using ECC memory).

PS: I noticed that 10.3.0.3.3286 was released but I do not see any release notes in this thread for it. Can you tell what changed between 10.3.0.3.3105 and 10.3.0.3.3286? When it is related to 11.x branch as well I can perhaps also upgrade to 10.3.0.3.3286 and check if that works stable. I know for sure that 10.3.0.3.3105 was stable for me in the past.

Found that installing 10.3.0.3.3286 over a system that was upgraded to 11.0.0.4.3252 and had the ZFS version updated resolves the WebGui hanging when accessing Disks|ZFS|Tools while still allowing access to the zpools. This can be a 'workaround' until the 11 issues are resolved.

Running 10.3.0.3.3105 now almost two days without any issues, thus hardware itself is not to blame. Tomorrow I want to upgrade to 10.3.0.3.3286 and let that run for a couple of days.

Still wondering what could have caused the issue with my NAS4Free running on Asrock E3C224D4I-14S when running with the 11.x branch.

One of the new features of 11.x is the monitoring function (which I really like). When I was using this feature with 11.x on my E3C224D4I-14S, I did notice that sometimes it seems that for certain periods nothing was recorded (unfortunately I did not make screenshots of it). In the figure you will notice 'broken' lines.

Interesting enough I do not see this behavior on my other NAS4Free box (ASRock B75 Pro3-M) which is now already running 11.x software for almost 9 days. Here I do see 'smooth' figures for the monitoring except for the uptime figure which seems not correct (it shows uptime of 23 hours and 20 minutes, where it is actually 8 day(s) 22 hour(s) 41 minute). Just trying to give some clues to the developers what can be the issue.

Being on the bleeding edge is not always the best plan, indeed, if you have mission critical systems. I'm going to stay at 10.3 for quite a while yet before looking at 11, as 10.3 works fine as is and does what I need.

But kudos to the devs for pushing forward and continuing to improve the product. I'll join you on 11... later. :P

Hi, HenriM

About 11 unstability we continue to discusssimilar problem and I have a hypothesis
First of all, 11 is far more memory-hungry then 10. See example from one of my reader
Image
(10.3, pause for instalation, 11.0)
There was no SWAP usage with 10.3 - but is with 11.0

So my questions to you
1) Have your system SWAP activated?
2.1) If no -could you please try to activate it, even for USB flash drive? And check stability then
2.2) If yes - could you possibly check if system really use SWAP with 11.
If yes, are you shure, SWAP partition is hardware error free? Could you temporary try another hardware for SWAP? Even USB flash OK for temporary tests
If no, my hypothesis is not appropriate.

After running 10.3.0.3.3105 stable for almost 2 days I now switched to 10.3.0.3286 which runs for 1 day stable. The System Information in this system show for Memory Usage 16 GB for which 83% is used right now. Further it shows a swap usage of 0% of 8 G (Device /dev/da4p3 | Total: 8G | Used: 0B | Free: 8G). I am booting NAS4Free from my Corsair Slider USB pendrive of 16 GB. I used LiveCD to partition it and used all default settings for installing NAS4Free.

But interesting enough I do not see /dev/da4p3 with df -h):

Code: Select all

Filesystem    Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/xmd0     120M     82M     38M    69%    /

procfs        4.0K    4.0K      0B   100%    /proc
Pool           27T     19T    8.0T    70%    /mnt/Pool

tmpfs         256M     56K    256M     0%    /var/tmp
/dev/da4p2    743M    184M    559M    25%    /cf
Mountpoint overview is also currently empty. Is this perhaps indeed the issue? I am now totally surprised why this Swap usage is shown in System Information. Good point!

Actually I want to run 10.3.0.3.3286 couple of days stable en then want to try 11.0.0.4.3305 (without monitoring) again. But perhaps it is good to find out this Swap usage issue first. Any suggestions?

EDIT 1: I have Swap *not* enabled in System|Advanced|Swap but still it shows up in System Information.
EDIT 2: When I try to add mountpoint for da4 I get:

Code: Select all

The following input errors were detected: •/dev/da4p1: Can't get UFS ID.
dumpfs: /dev/da4p1: could not read superblock to fill out disk
EDIT 3: System Information of Partition of Device /dev/da4 - Corsair Slider 3.0 000E
