Hello XigmaNAS developers,
just tested this new build but some libraries are still missing, like in previous build 6392. In fact when I run dnsmasq I obtain this error:
Shared object "libidn2.so.0" not found, required by "dnsmasq"

Reverting again to build 6315...

are you using extension or custom software?

I'm using the dnsmasq executable inside the following pkg:
http://pkg.freebsd.org/FreeBSD:11:amd64 ... 80_1,1.txz

Dnsmasq dependencies are available here: https://www.freshports.org/dns/dnsmasq/.
I copy&paste below:
Library dependencies:
libidn2.so : dns/libidn2
libnettle.so : security/nettle
libgmp.so : math/gmp
libintl.so : devel/gettext-runtime

Hello, what you are experiencing is that a recent port upgrade/change in latest XigmaNAS does not need that dependency(libidn2.so.0) any longer, hence is not present in the distro, and that lib will be not the only one that will change in future releases, remember that XigmaNAS only have the necessary files/libraries to works as the intended purpose, a NAS appliance.

For this reason users wanting to run additional custom software/packages need to check for its dependencies first and prepare the environment under Embedded to work properly, usually by symlinking, however if this is an Extension, the maintained need to update its dependencies accordingly.

Alternatively advanced users can deploy one of the existing Full Platforms and simply use "pkg" utility to install packages natively.

P.S. XigmaNAS 11.2.0.4.6400 is working perfectly fine here on my basic tests, either Embedded and Full RootOnZFS Platforms are safe for installation and/or WebGUI upgrades.

The problem in your case is outdated package, packages only gets updated 4 times a year on FreeBSD.
dnsmasq depends on dns/libidn2.

dns/libidn2 is recent updated to to 2.1.0 and now uses lib/libidn2.so.4
https://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/getmsg.cgi ... -ports-all

XigmaNAS now uses newer updated libs than your used packages in your case supports.

Did the home page "backup reminder" get left out inadvertently?

OK, understood. I didn't see those settings. I thought it was a just post-upgrade automatic reminder as I'd only seen it once.
Thanks!

Hello XigmaNAS developers,
just tested this new build but I'm not able to get any sound from the nas anymore. (No beep at startup.)
Revert back to 11.2.0.4 - Omnius (revision 6171).... Sound OK.

Hi Provels,
Thanks for your reply, I've the startup beep now, but still no sound. I know
XigmasNas is not a multimedia server, but i use it to listen to the radio
with a virtual machine.
All help would be apreciated.

Upgraded one system already. No issues with the upgrade itself, but I'm currently running into two problems.
One of those problems has occurred before, starting with some build around 4000 (not entirely sure here, sorry)but was gone for some builds before the name change (please note that I don't update regularly, just when the NAS is active anyway).

The reoccurring problem is that during SMB transfers with lots of files the performance randomly drops after some time.
Sometimes the performance goes up again just to drop a bit later again.
What I could see is that the performance drops start to happen when the NAS is starting to use swap.
Before swap is used (right after startup, just when RAM is available) performance is high as expected.
I can see some log entries (see below) for swap and smbd but not sure if those apply here to the problem, since there are not always log entries when the performance drops.
Before I could get rid of the "swap" just by setting "vfs.zfs.arc_max" to "28G". Currently I'm at 23G but still experience swapping.

A new problem starting with this build are (again random) drops of the UPS connection.
The UPS itself is connected to my router. The router runs apcupsd (current version) and provides a server for all devices in the network.
The UPS is configured as "Master" with driver "apcupsd-ups" and the port is the IP address of my router. This worked all the time before.
Other clients connected to the UPS server do not report any connection loss, only the NAS. Right after a loss the connection is re-established.

System specs:
XigmaNAS x64 embedded
CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1260L v5 @ 2.90GHz
Mainboard: Supermicro X11SSM-F BIOS 2.1a (yeah, not the current version, but every update is a major PITA and nothing changed between the updates before)
32GB RAM
8x 8TB Seagate HDD (on onboard-SATA controller) as a RAIDZ2
System installed on SanDisk Ultra Fit 16GB USB 3.0 Stick
1GB swap on said USB stick

Log entries with swap or smbd:

The reoccurring problem is that during SMB transfers with lots of files the performance randomly drops after some time.
Sometimes the performance goes up again just to drop a bit later again.
What I could see is that the performance drops start to happen when the NAS is starting to use swap.
Before swap is used (right after startup, just when RAM is available) performance is high as expected.
I can see some log entries (see below) for swap and smbd but not sure if those apply here to the problem, since there are not always log entries when the performance drops.
Before I could get rid of the "swap" just by setting "vfs.zfs.arc_max" to "28G". Currently I'm at 23G but still experience swapping.
play with send & Receive buffer, try my values, 128K/2=64K , and 128/4=32 k as tipicall values.



I notice best transfer with small values = 32K on machines like yours.

A new problem starting with this build are (again random) drops of the UPS connection.
The UPS itself is connected to my router. The router runs apcupsd (current version) and provides a server for all devices in the network.
The UPS is configured as "Master" with driver "apcupsd-ups" and the port is the IP address of my router. This worked all the time before.
Other clients connected to the UPS server do not report any connection loss, only the NAS. Right after a loss the connection is re-established.

Regarding "data stale" of the UPS please read this thread: /viewtopic.php?f=46&t=13361 I had the same problem and I am pretty sure that it is LAN related.

Just to add into, I've used to have this UPS issues from time to time since NAS4Free, as well on my FreeBSD box(maybe NUT related), just entering in the Services > UPS and clicking on Save & Restart solved my issue on demand.

Sorry for the later answer.

As suggested I played around with the values.
The best performance I got with 64k (65536) while 32k basically slowed performance down to little above 100MBit/sec.
I couldn't provoke the performance drops but maybe I need more files to copy (will try probably next week).

But, while toying around, I managed to "kill" off the NAS ending in a forced reboot through console.
What did I do:
- tested SMB performance with "current" setting 128480 (all the time send & receive buffer)
- took mental note of swap usage (around 175MByte)
- set to 65536, Save & Restart
- tested SMB performance again
- noticed a slight decrease in swap usage
- set to 32k, Save & Restart
- tested SMB performance again
- noticed another decrease in swap usage
- set to 256960, Save & Restart (yes, I always try to break things :twisted: )
- tested SMB performance again
- noticed an increase in Swap usage and a lot of the "swap_pager" log entries
- noticed a delayed response of the WebGUI
- set to 65536, Save & Restart
- tried to go to the "Home"-Screen
- got a "no response"-message from browser
- saw a lot of the "swap_pager" log entries in console (basically all the time until reboot)
- tried navigation back & forth within browser, no avail
- tried logging into SSH console with putty
- first attempt timed out, second worked but was extremely slow
- entered "reboot" command and hit ENTER
- after approx. 15 seconds the NAS finally began the reboot

Somehow I'm starting to suspect that maybe the USB thumbdrive is having issues or something else is acting weird... :?

Doing a search for the log entry with the swap_pager in my status e-mails I found this starting with build 5925 (on this NAS, my second machine rarely uses swap) and for the build 5925 one user reported that problem.
