How do you guys get your media to your nas? I have a T420 with a seagate 2tb HDD. I am copying/moving over the network it takes hours to move a big show.
>>
>>1091733
What is your hardware setup? What are you using to copy? What are you copying?

If you're using a wireless transfer, that alone will bog you down. Connect over ethernet. If you're running an older router (or switch if the NAS or computer is connected to one) it might not support gigabit speeds. Its also worth asking how many devices are connected to the network and what those devices are also doing.

If you're transferring a lot of small-size high quantity files without compressing them first that will take a while too.

How many gigs are you transferring anyways?

I don't know how experienced you are so these questions might seem retardedly simple to you.

wouldn't it make more sense to torrent from your nas?

I recently got a Pi3B+ running with an externally powered HDD, and set it up with RDP.
I can't get qbittorrent to run at startup yet, but I'm working on it.
I just dropped some private tracker stuff on the pi and still get hit and runs up to 1.0 ratio with my desktop when I'm on it.
Is there any advantage to the 4 over the 3? I wonder what I'm missing out on, but I know my electricity bill is going down now that I don't have a gaming PC running 24/7.
>>
>>1091841
pi 4 has a slightly faster cpu and has more ram than the pi 3b+
pi3 has 1 full hdmi while the pi4 has 2x micro hdmi
also pi4 requires a usb c psu at 5V 3A (15w) and depending on which revision you get it is kinda picky on what poweradapter you use (pi official power adapter works on all revisions)
if you're going to run more ram-heavy services, go for the pi4

I'm looking into building a HTPC/torrent box using the NUC7CJYHN (with a 5TB HDD, 8GB RAM) and running Mint Linux (qbittorrent + kodi always running).

Was hoping for a price drop on black Friday. No such luck. Fingers crossed for Monday.

I'm a Linux noob, so I'm hoping I won't run into many issues. VNC remote access shouldn't be too difficult to set up, but I've only had horrible experiences with Linux usability in the past. Will probably end up pulling my hair out again trying to get some missing drivers working through the command line or some other bullshit.

Sorry if I'm not understanding this correctly, you are getting a 30mbps transfer rate to your NAS? What router are you using, can you look at the speeds on that? And your NAS, make sure the network card drivers are installed/updated correctly since you had just set it up. It could be running some generic drivers

>Will I get a letter from my isp or scomo?
depends entirely on what you torrent. when it comes to copyrighted material its either a hit or miss if your ip gets detected.
in general your ISP wont care that you torrent, but depending on where you live, a DMCA troll can detect your ip by joining the torrent and log ip's that connect to them.
with those collected ip's they go to ISP's and ask them for their customer info so they can send a letter, fine or sue them.
where i live downloading copyrighted material is forbidden by law but not enforced.


>Will I notice it on my power bill?
depends on your setup. using your ultra gaming rig yes, but using a pi no

I'm running a nuc for homeassistant, I really like raspberry pi got a few motioneye cams running on them, but not for HA or any kind of server. Weak point here is the sd card. If you run it on Rpi, move your boot/os to usb

Mint is a great os for learning linux, but for server I wouldn't use it. I'd go for OMV.

Been using linux bout 20y now, using debian as desktop os, even gamed on it few years back. I just had to install a windows again last year cause I'm doing unreal engine courses
>>

NUC7CJYHN guy here. I built the system I talked about here earlier, and it all worked out great.

I didn't know this, but apparently 2.5" drives come in two different thicknesses nowadays, so I had to get rid of the included drive cage, because the 5TB drive I bought could not fit inside it. Without the drive cage there was enough space, albeit now I have a free dangling HDD inside the NUC, which isn't a big deal to me. Internal temperatures are fine.

No problems running Mint so far. This has been my first Linux experience where everything just worked fine on first install, and I did not have to scour forums for obscure homebrew solutions to missing drivers.

I still have to set up VNC with SSH so I can control qbittorrent remotely. I'm sure a Linux nerd would tell me to just use rtorrent and control everything via the terminal, but I'm a noob and I have no actual intentions of "learning Linux", so I prefer to keep things GUI based. Also still have to set up Samba shares.

There's a little bit of fan noise from the NUC, but nothing too noticeable.

If I had the budget I might have gone with more HDDs and some kind of software RAID config with a more server/NAS oriented OS, but for what I actually wanted, and for the money I wanted to spend, this has accomplished everything I needed it to: I get to start farming bonus points on my private trackers again and watch content on my TV all with negligible electricity consumption.

Not quite true, actually if you are mostly seeding ssd's are going to last much longer than a hdd because the wear while reading data is practically non existant

I was recently given a pretty decent laptop by my company to use for home office work. It was locked down and only had the bare necessities on it. You couldnt install any apps without admin rights. Today I have found out I can circumvent the lock by using portableapps.com, which lets me run utorrent from a plugged in USB stick.

Yes, my study is in an extension of the house and the wall are too thick for wifi to pass.
So that way I can access my shared folder (where my torrents files are located) and access internet.
And since all the house is equipped with 1Gb ethernet, it fast enough not to bother me.

>I don't want to buy used because risk of failure is higher
I understand that, but thats exactly why they are so cheap, you buy 2 for the price of a new one so you just duble down and have several for spares. If nothing happens, then now you have way more storage than you would have otherwise with new drives, it really is a risk reward

ive been wanting to buy a nas server, exact pic related (ds920+)
>how many plex streams at once can it handle?

>how many plex streams at once can it handle?
if im correct it has a 4core intel mobile cpu. its more powerfull than the arm cpu's but not a powerhouse. i think it should do 4 streams at 720p just fine
>can i dump and load my steam games off of it?
technically yes but i would not suggest doing it because off latency and random read/write. you're better off getting a large hdd and put your library there and use the nas as an archive for your games.
>same with my roms?
same

just builded my new homeserver/seedbox to replace my current pi setup.
>specs:
- the motherboard has an onboard cpu: AMD PRO A4-3350B with 4cores
- 8gb ddr3
- small ssd for the os
- 5tb storage (i'm going to expand this in the future)

That said, I run my Plex off a dedicated PC sitting next to my NAS. It's one of those HP boxes that was $125 for a while and has a QuickSync CPU, but I upgraded to a better CPU for more streams because I usually have at least 3-4 people streaming. Running Plex off a separate box gives you the ability to upgrade that CPU or memory or run other stuff the NAS can't really do.
>>can i dump and load my steam games off of it?
Steam will let you back up to anything, but you're not going to want to play your games off a NAS, it'll take you ten minutes to load a level. However, if you do go with a dedicated box, you could set up a Steam Cache and then you only have to download your games once:

>>same with my roms?
>mostly retroarch and pcsx2
You can back up roms to whatever you want, but they're small enough I just use a USB stick that's plugged into the back of my Shield where I do my emu stuff.

If you're plugged in to your NAS through ethernet on a standard gigabit link, it will essentially be an external hard drive limited to 128 MB/s reads which is pretty much the same speeds you'd be getting with a 7200RPM HDD.

Should be fine for single player games.

OrangePi PC with Armbian as a qbittorrent/aMule box, in theory. Just today I wanted to upgrade from a meager 8GB SD to a 16GB A1 but managed to fuck up something during first boot and have to reflash the SD again. Also, I'm getting old and I forgot how messy the amule-daemon installation is on command line... I'd like things to be easier.

Man, are you sharing? I miss the early 2000, when you can find entire, good quality movies on 300/600mb, (divx ftw!) (I even found a batchj of movies formated for the PSP once, 60mb per file),,, I hate the BD dump, too much fucking space...

I just moved recently so I haven't had time to cable manage yet, but here's my setup:

>Rpi 4 in an Argon case OC to 2Ghz, connected to 16TB dock, shared through Samba, running Plex, Tautulli, Jackett, Sonarr, Radarr, and Ombi
>Rpi4 in Canakit case, connected to Mullvad through OpenVPN and running qbittorrent-nox

torrents are not just there for movies and shows. eg the canadian trucker collection torrent is over 3tb
>>
>>1127032
>Sonarr, Radarr
I never got the point of these and all the other "arr" ones. Can't you just add an RSS feed to a torrent client and set for automatic download? And if you want to download something just go on rarbg, search and click the magnet link.
>>
I use a nuc and a 1 tb drive.

I am not seeding anything yet tho, was using a pi4 for it, does the job pretty well.

Running nginx and some containers, using jellyfin, plex looked like shit with their movie option all are some crappy indian movies.

Got two of that shit and installed linux on it. It's supposed to be hard drive you can only access online through WD website, kek. So, got two of these last year during amazon prime days, 9to (WD red) x 2, for around $100 each. Space has never been a problem since.

I got tired of my raspberry setup, so I built a "NAS" on an old haswell era SSF PC with some dualcore pentium, which runs at like 10-15 watts under load and mirrored 4TB HDDs for storage
It runs plain Arch with Transmission on it and use ssh(fs)+mpv to view my stuff.
Arguably, Arch was not the wisest choice for a server, but i only have good things to say about it so far. Definitely much smoother and more stable than my former raspberry thing. I've been operating this setup now for almost 2 years and I am quite happy with happy with it.
I also have a wireguard tunnel to a server with public IPv4 running stunnel, which provides the transmission control interfece over TLS and I have that set up on my phone in Transdroid, so I can queue up new torrents whenever. Very comfy, can recommend.

Yeah, pretty much but Jellyfin is open source. Id say jellyfin is a little less polished than Plex though.

Sonarr/Radarr let you search and choose what shows/movies you want to download, and you can do it remotely. If I'm at work or a friend's house and I'm bullshitting and remember some random movie and go "hey, I wanna watch that" I can download it and add it to my Plex from my phone.

anybody have any advice for using a pi as a router to get rid of ads?
>>
>>1134787
>>>/g/
you should not make a pi into a router if its only purpose is to get rid of ads.
flash ubuntu server ARM LTS onto a sd and instal pihole.
this will block ads on dns level. you can take it a step further and install unbound along it and turn it into your personal selfhosted DNS server.

Thing is, that can be done with a torrent client that supports RSS, so it's less bloat.

Only if you don't want angry letters from your ISP. Otherwise, nobody cares.

Here's my question:

I'm using a raspberry pi 3 with Raspbian OS and qbittorrent (took me 8 hours to set up btw). As I add more and more torrents the whole thing gets slower and more unstable. It likes to crash a lot and have other random errors. I have 75 torrents running and aim to acquire a thousand. Anything I can do?
>>
>>1140659
my guesses are its cpu and IO limmited. some here upgraded to a NUC or something similair. i used to run qbittorrent on a pi4 but later upgraded it to a onboard x86 4core cpu board which has been running great so far
>>
>>1140659
"downgrade" the os to something terminal-based, where you can ssh into
from what I've read, qbit isn't the best for large amounts of consecutive torrents (someone correct me if wrong), consider switching clients to again, something that'll only run on terminal, with a web-based remote gui
>>
>>1140659
OP here, install raspios + transmission-daemon

I should prob work on having a separate system for my torrents and usenet's at this point but I never turn my pc off unless im updating stuff...

Anywho 16tb of raid storage using wd reds though that's mostly for the automated stuff which is usenet's and not torrents.

a 2tb ssd for games and torrents, and a 1tb ssd for windows and programs.

Ryzen 5950x.

Everything from qB is filtered through PIA split tunnel with the advanced kill switch on and the Network interface in qB settings set to the network adapter created by PIA.

I have some oldish hardware and a meshify C case I could turn into a sperate system but that case has negative space for hdd's unless I pull out the velcro and slap them on top of the power supply shroud.

once you grow up to be a big boi you will realize some things especially data is valuable and needs to be archived in order to protect it from censors or luddites that want to distort history and change the written records of said events.
that said 750gb is barely enough for a couple of 4k movies left alone full series in 4k and lets not go into other data territory like 3d files , topographical maps, satellite and spacecraft data or simply mundane scientific data all of those can easily exceed 5-50TB per set.

>>1131354
The man >>1142700 is right
I have 1 10TB, 2 6TB, 1 5TB WD blacks
and its nothing, im always hurtin for space.
WD needs to put out a 20TB Black, tired of turning down downloads, my backlog is now like 5 TBs of downloads

Nigger you really want to compare a handful of watts of consumption in a tiny corner of your room running 24/7 to a +100W thin client?

Only advantage for the latter is not depending on external power for the drives and keeping them all inside.
