Hopefully someone might be able to help with an issue I am having with StableBit DrivePool. I have recently built a new WHS 2011 Server (spec's below) and transferred all my data to it from my HPEX495 WHSv1 system.
The new WHS 2011 system was running fast and smooth until I added StableBit DrivePool (latest stable release NOT the current Beta) whereupon everything has slowed to a crawl and at times has simply seized up. The issue appears to be around finalising the duplication and on-going balancing. Duplication has hit 88% but never progresses and the machine continually seems to be balancing.
I have tried turning balancing off and to just do it at 1am in the morning and although that helps for a bit the duplication (which is why I got DrivePool) just won't finish. This results in the Dashboard freezing up and crashing.
I have heard that people have installed WHS 2011 and DrivePool on some reasonably low spec systems so I was expecting that mine would be more than capable - any ideas, suggestions on speeding things up as I've gone from having a reasonably responsive WHSv1 system to having a Server that I can't stream anything from.
Spec's are as follows (let me know if you need further info):
1. Used an old HP d5000t desktop as the base - used this as the ATX motherboard was highly expandable.
2. The Server's spec's are:
(a) Processor - Core 2 Quad Q9550 (K) (2.83GHz /1333 MHz) 12 MB L2 cache.
(b) Memory - 8 GB (4 x 2 GB) DDR2 PC2-6400 (4 DIMMS)
(c) OS is loaded on a Samsung 830 256GB SSD.
(d) I have installed two of "Sonnet Tempo's SATA E2P
2 Port 3Gb/s eSATA PCI Express Host Adapter with Port Multiplication" to hang my two 5 bay enclosures off.
(e) I have 15 Drives connected to the Server as follows:
3 x 2TB Western Digital Black Caviar Drives in the d5000t case
2 x 3TB Western Digital external USB drives
2 x Sans Digital TowerRAID TR5M-B enclosures with a total of 19TB of storage between them.
