NAS4Free 11.0.0.4.4040 released (FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-P8)

#1

Post by zoon01 »

The NAS4Free Team is pleased to announce a maintenance release of version 11.0.0.4.4040 - Sayyadina

download build 11.0.0.4.4040
Read the readme_11.0

Because of PHP upgrade and its related code changes: extensions like Extended GUI are not compatible!
Extensions should be disabled before and after upgrades until their creators have updated it's sources.
As we understood, OBI plugin is now compatible with this release.


Major Change!
Note for 32-bits users:
===================
We believe that the use of 32-bits versions can not give the end users it's full potential of the OS, for this
further development on the (i386) 32-bits architecture has been stopped upon the 11.0.0.3.xxxx series.
Current 32-bits users are able to use 32-bits 10.3.0.3.xxxx series until their end of life or do reinstall
to use 64-bits NAS4Free and restore config.

Again TIP: Do not upgrade from 10 series directly!
reinstall and restore config is the way to go because of increased partition size!
You avoid lots of problems later on.

Upgrade note:
=============
RRDGraphs extension can no longer be used with 11.x series, disable and deinstall before upgrade!
RRDGraphs are now included in 11.x series, you can setup on webgui System > Advanced > Monitoring Setup.
Do not reinstall the extension!!!

BUILD 11.0.0.4.4040

Changes after release 11.0.0.4.4029
===============================
- Update translations.
- Add several kernel patches.
- Add code improvements.
- Add localized extension menu
- Hide reboot notifier before reboot/shutdown is performed.
- Fix deleting group was calling update processor with wrong notifier id.

Known bugs:
===========
- IE11 and Edge browser does not operate correctly with novnc. Enter & Escape button problematic,
this will be fixed at a later release, use Chrome or other browser or connect with putty client.

Enjoy!

Regards,
The NAS4Free Team

Thanks to the devs, upgrade from 4029 worked perfectly without problems!

I checked all extensions against r4040, just DNSMasq DHCP Server, NextOnwCloud and TheBrig are NOT compatibel with this release :!:

Please obey the compatibility version notes in the OneButtonInstaller extensions list :!:

It is strongly recommended to activate the switch Update extensions list automatically in OneButtonInstaller to see the most recent versions notes.

Yet another upgrade fail.

Upgrading from 3940 to 4029 went without a hitch. Just the hassle of clearing the broswer cache in Chrome.

Upgrading from 4029 to 4040 resulted in a fail due to messages saying the zpool was busy. Rebooting showed that 4040 had installed but there was no config (an ongoing intermittent issue). Changed the ip to 192.168.2.25 so I could access my network and then loaded the config which produced an encryption error message. Turned off encryption and reloaded config which seemed to go OK until I got a 'no operating system message' on rebooting.

You're absolutely right about Nextcloud 11 and PHP 7.1.x but NOT in this regard because I was talking about the extension NextOwnCloud ;)
The extension needs some work regarding PHP 7.1 and also to use the appropriate Nextcloud (or OwnCloud) version for N4F 10.3 up to 11.0.0.4.3460 which uses PHP 7.0.x and for 11.0.0.4.3882 and higher which comes with PHP 7.1.x.

Turned off encryption and reloaded config which seemed to go OK until I got a 'no operating system message' on rebooting.
Turned out that the MB once again decided to reset which drive it booted from. Once I pointed it back at the relavant USB stick it booted into 4040 just fine.

BUT

When I went to also upgrade the backup server I get an error

The following input errors were detected:
Failed to create in-memory file system.

Hello, did the target backup machine memory is/was lets say over 95% usage?,
If the target machine is very thigh in memory, the upgrade process will may fail to create a tmpfs which mounts on /var/tmp/ftmp, still dunno if the system is properly releasing cached memory wen needed, need more investigation.

Sorry, that's not a bug, Shrink Page Header is only session valid in case some uses a very small screen, it is not intended to have the top header permanent hidden on systems.

since the system status page is the first page to pop up how can I move the button to shrink the header to the footer of the system status page? What pages should have the file I can make the changes?
It would be more convenient for the 10 inch screen than going to other menus to do so.

The main page is an informal page and not a configuration page. Therefore no form elements exist. We also have no plans to add a button to the footer section.

Hello, did the target backup machine memory is/was lets say over 95% usage?,
I've tried updating with memory usage reported from between 55% and 89% according to the status page. I get the same error each time.

your issue is quite peculiar to me and I'm still wondering, please could you post your system specs i.e MB used and Ram amount ECC/Non-ECC etc.

Hello:

I'm curious as to your system specs as well. Would you please provide info regarding the Motherboard, CPU, Hard drives (manufacturer, type, size, etc.), etc, in addition to what JoseMR has requested. I only ask as I think you may have a one off system as I have never had the amount of trouble you are experiencing with upgrades. Maybe I'm just lucky, who knows. I only ask because if you look at my specs for my NAS system (see below), it is pretty modest by today's standard. I will point out my NAS has 13.6TB of ZFS RAID 1 total, 10.1TB Allocated, 3.53TB free. The NIC is an Intel with 4 GB ports setup to do LAGG (switch is a Netgear ProSafe GS724T configured for the 4 ports as LAGG). So I'm guessing I'll be upgrading the drives to 5 x 6TB or 8TB Seagate NAS drive in the near future (my luck been pretty good with the Seagate brand but I do my due diligence when I get to the purchasing stage). Regarding my memory I use 16GB non-ECC and when the system first starts it basically uses about 5% of the 16086MiB. But... each morning at 4:30AM I do a RSYNC to my QNAP TS-869 Pro with 8 x 4TB Seagate drive and 3GB RAM. As soon as there is ANY kind of serious demand put on the NAS (NAS4Free not QNAP) the NAS memory usage jumps to 97% of 16086MiB and it NEVER falls below, regardless if the NAS system drive sleeps or not. Most times the NAS is idle and waiting for a request so I don't know why the memory is not released. If your curious as to what the NAS does... Nightly starting at midnight my windows systems (4 of them) start jobs to backup data only to the NAS. This usually takes less than 30 minutes for each system. At the 1st of each month an Image (Acronis) is set to create a total image (not incremental or differential) and keep the prior 2 months (IE 3 months of images on hand) and this is done a 7AM. Lastly is also serves as a file storage for my HTPC (MKV) files. This is where the majority of the data usage is located as most of the files are Blu-ray (main movie only) and I haven't done any compression to them as I want them to as true as possible (hence the reason to upgrade to larger hard drives). Now I don't access the HTPC movies all the time but 2 or 3 times a week so again I don't see why 16086MiB of memory is so heavily taxed. Yes, I know ZFS uses a lot of memory but in today's age you would think they (or whomever) could do a better job of (dynamic) memory allocation. I mean if M$ can figure it out...

The point being is when I do my embedded upgrade AFTER doing a System Backup, the System Firmware Update works without any troubles. I guess I'm just lucky when doing upgrades. Here's hoping the geniuses can help you to a smoother upgrade process.

Thank you a lot for sharing a detailed experience with NAS4Free, ZFS etc, the high amount of RAM you been experiencing is just the ZFS ARC(Adaptive Replacement Cache) filling up, the bigger the zpool(s) then more ARC is requested, while this supposedly should be smart and self dynamically controlled, the user always can tune/limit this behavior from the GUI.

Regarding NAS4Free Embedded firmware upgrade failures, this is a very deep topic and there are lots of factors which affects this process, from a simple miss-configured system to problems far beyond our imagination(inner hardware issues), but I will try to post most common problems here for reference, instead being too technical.

The NAS4Free Embedded platform highly relies on available system RAM, this is because the running system is structured in the RAM on independent memory disks(md0, md1, md2) with a fourth memory file system(tmpfs) for tmp, in the event the system is very thigh on system RAM, SWAP will try to take care/compensate so will start paging, therefore memory exhaustion without SWAP, could result in many unpredictable system errors or even plain system crashes.

*But I have lots of RAM why my system randomly crash?*, This is where the previous above statement comes into play, a NAS4Free Embedded system with decent amount of RAM still can even experience unpredictable system errors wen it runs low on RAM if there is no SWAP partition present.

*But I have a Swap partition and Free RAM whats going on?*, This is where the far and deeper technical issues comes into play, but a common one is that many NAS4Free users are running Embedded platforms from a USB(slow USB 2.0 generally) and they SWAP partition is placed on the USB, this USB drives are connected to a far lower speed, higher latency USB HUB/bridges and generally they don't take advantages of DMA(direct memory access) unlike conventional HDD's/SSD's, thus a small interruption and/or latency on SWAP paging could also results in unpredictable issues preventing the system from being upgraded properly; Note that This will vastly vary from system to system and specifications.

In regards to the "inner hardware issues", well this is one of the electronics phenomena devils we have to live with, just to sum it up, as this topic is extremely deep and far beyond the average users knowledge.

I do not use ECC memory.

I must admin that I am increasingly minded to invest in a couple of low cost ssd for booting and to put them on the first sata port.

Re: NAS4Free 11.0.0.4.4040 released (FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-P8)

#25

Post by JoseMR »

Hi slaycock, thanks for posting the the spec for the affected machine, noticed only "91M Free" on the Backup server, anyway please try another upgrade with the following instruction:

1) Turn off Extended GUI Extension if enabled.
2) Download the fresh firmware file from SourceForge and place on a permanent data location
3) Issue a Firmware upgrade from the shell with the following command:

Code: Select all

# /etc/rc.firmware upgrade /path/to/NAS4Free-x64-embedded-11.0.0.4.XXXX.img.xz
where XXXX is the revision numbers.

Hope this will help, and looking forward for the results.

Regards
System: FreeBSD 12 RootOnZFS Mirror, MB: Supermicro X8SI6-F, Xeon X3450, 16GB DDR3 ECC RDIMMs.

I've installed new version (version "FULL") and found a small problem: webGUI doesn't start by itself. I have to start from console (option 11 - Restart webGUI): not a big problem using IPMI/kVM interface. Something wrong in my installation?
Fluffy rulez!

Hello:

@JoseMR

you stated the following:
"... while this supposedly should be smart and self dynamically controlled, the user always can tune/limit this behavior from the GUI." Really? Where? How (IE: upper and lower limits)? Documentation? Don't get me wrong I appreciate the info but it's the first I've heard.

I just find it weird that if I do a simple file transfer the memory doesn't alarmingly jump. But once that RSYNC kicks in then RAM goes to 97% and never releases. I get what you said about the ZFS ARC but at some point there has got to be a way for the ARC to automatically flush it's cache after a set period of time. Being the system is 90 - 95% idle, some logic has got to be incorporated to manage the ARC more efficiently. Now I'm sure I'm going to get some flak as to the definition of efficiency, but for a system to be idle 90 - 95%, using 97% of RAM makes no sense (to me) and it's not like the ARC can't be filled again if it was in fact flushed. Restarting the NAS proves this as the RAM starts at about 5% usage. All the drives of the ZFS are on-line (just not accessed), and if I go to a share from my windows system the RAM doesn't jump to 97%. Also, the RSYNC only determines what has changed (new file/folder(s), deleted file/folder(s), changed file/folder(s), etc.) and only acts on those changes. I guess what I'm getting at is... if I use my windows system to copy a file/folder or a group of files/folders to/from the NAS the RAM doesn't jump to 97%, and I find that the baffling part. As far as my swap file is concerned, I use a 32GB portion of my ZFS pool and it always indicates 0 Bytes used 32GB free, so if the swap is being used it seems it flushes itself without incident.

Your main NAS system M/B is a from a reputable manufacturer and you're on the latest (actually last produced) BIOS so I find it weird the M/B just changes boot drives. Not saying it's not happening, it could be a deep rooted bug and given the age Gigabyte not going back to correct, they would rather you (read: everyone) buy the latest and greatest of their M/B line. Your RAM size and mine are about the same (for all intensive purpose) so it's a mystery to me as to why the headaches on upgrades. Like JoseMR indicated some thing are hardware issues that are deep rooted given the many variables of manufacturer (of all components - M/B, RAM, H/D etc, and setup (add-ons, features turned on/off etc). Sorry I can't be of help to you at this point because everything should be working without issue based on the info you supplied.

Dear JoseMR

Many thanks for your help. Unfortunately your suggestion indicates that there may be something deeply wrong with the server setup.

Hope this will help, and looking forward for the results.

Code: Select all

Welcome Lazarus on NAS4Free!
lazarusnas: ~# ls
.cshrc    .dialogrc .inputrc  .profile
lazarusnas: ~# cd ..
lazarusnas: /# ls
.snap        bin          boot         cf           conf         conf.default dev          entropy      etc          ftmp         home         lib          libexec      mnt          proc         root         sbin         tmp          usr          var
lazarusnas: /# /etc/rc.firmware upgrade /tmp/NAS4Free-x64-embedded-11.0.0.4.4040.img.xz
/etc/rc.firmware: cannot open /dev/console: Device not configured
In the meantime I've ordered a couple of low cost 32GB SSD.

Hello Slaycock, /tmp is still on system ram(tmpfs), I was suggesting another user created directory/pool between, unfortunately your system already experiencing OS corruption as per see, I'm afraid you need to trigger a reboot in this case for this particular machine, since performing a config backup/DD image by hand(experimental) would be a bit risky by the way and I cannot take a chance. :(

Hello:

@JoseMR

you stated the following:
"... while this supposedly should be smart and self dynamically controlled, the user always can tune/limit this behavior from the GUI." Really? Where? How (IE: upper and lower limits)? Documentation? Don't get me wrong I appreciate the info but it's the first I've heard.

Hi, I was referring tho the whole ZFS ARC/allocation/vkem etc and the stuff you can fine-tune wen defaults does not work for you properly(particular cases mostly), there are some reading in the net already that show some users achieving better stability in this regards, while a vastly amount using plain out-of-the-box ZFS settings with absolutely no issues, I have to note down again that this is a more notorious issue here for the Embedded users by design.

While this issues could be minimal in ZFS Full installs(HDD/SSD Only), Full install is far beyond to be recommended here for the average user, any way, but if the user is experienced enough, and don't mind to try, Full install now support ZFS installation(snapshot protected), also mirroring for high availability/stability deployments.
