Are you running it in a jail?

Yes, InfluxDB and Grafana in a jail, FreeNAS sending data. Another jail runs Apache and dehydrated as an SSL proxy for all publicly reachable services. 7 jails, 3 VMs and counting ;)

Hi.

Tried to install two plugins from the "Community section". Using FreeNas 11.3-U1
Not possible, as it ended after about 20% with: Error: I/O operation on closed file.

I saw, that I was not the only one. Any solution, yet?

Regards

I did have this issue initially. Eventually I rebooted the machine and it went away. No idea what the root cause is, but that worked for me at least.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I rebooted my FreeNAS as well and the issue disappeared too. It was possible to install the plugins.
However, I ran into another issue and that could be solved using the solution here:

Strange, but it functions now.

Thanks

ACL Manager – Allows setup and management of SMB ACL’s directly via the FreeNAS web interface.
How does this effect the way some users have setup SMB inside of windows?

SMB Shadow Copies are now enabled by default for new shares – Note: Snapshots will only show up in Windows “Previous Versions Tab” if the snapshot USED size shows changes to the file.
Is there a way to enable it on a pre 11.3 share?

FreeNAS Community,

Pleased to announce that FreeNAS 11.3-RELEASE is now available! This marks our first major release of 2020 and brings with it a slew of new features and functionality, including but not limited to:

  • Re-implemented Replication Engine, allows up to 10Gb replication speeds (a 10x improvement), resume support on failed transfers, as well as ability to replicate locally.
  • ACL Manager – Allows setup and management of SMB ACL’s directly via the FreeNAS web interface.
  • SMB Shadow Copies are now enabled by default for new shares – Note: Snapshots will only show up in Windows “Previous Versions Tab” if the snapshot USED size shows changes to the file.
  • A repository of Community plugins has been created, users can now create and distribute 3rd party plugins which are not officially iXsystems supported.
  • Updated translations for Czech, French, Japanese, Russian, and Simplified Chinese. Additionally, the process to add additional translations has been greatly improved.
  • iSCSI Wizard – Streamlines the process of creating new iSCSI targets down to a few clicks.
  • Alert System Overhaul – More granular alerts, as well as controls to set alert thresholds.
  • Dashboard Updates – The initial dashboard now shows a live view of system status, including network traffic, CPU / memory utilization and more.
  • NAT Support for Plugins – Eliminates the need for each plugin to have a dedicated IP address on your network.
  • Full featured 2.0 API – Includes both REST and Websocket connections, allowing FreeNAS to be fully scripted and driven via the same API used by the web-interface.
  • Large Pool Creation Assistance – When creating ZFS pools with large number of disks, the UI provides an automated way to repeat a VDEV layout across all remaining disks.
  • ZFS Performance optimizations across the board for many different workloads.

I don't like the new interface. Takes up a LOT of real estate and tells me very little. The original interface has a lot of information in a little area. I've worked as an admin on systems for many years and its very annoying not having a clean interface with info together. Whats the purpose of these huge boxes boxes on the landing page? Looking for pretty or functional. Please make the original interface available again.

What possible reason justifies maintaining two GUIs in parallel in the long term?

I like the new interface (the previous was really UGLY). But I agree with you regarding the "space" that it takes on screen.

Would be nice to have this new layout but in a more "compact" way.

Hello everyone!

11.2-U8 to 11.3-U2.1 upgrade went smooth.

It looks this fixed a Fault Trap 12 issue for me.

I was on 11.2-U8, also experienced on U7. Using:

dual Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.80GHz (3790.58-MHz K8-class CPU)
16gb ECC DDR2, ~12TB of sata mirror pools


I'd get reboot when trying very large rsync copy operation to another FreeNAS system on gigabit lan. After ~9 or 10 hours, msgbuf would say:

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode (Referencing the ssh process)

While on the hunt after fault trap 12, I upgraded from 8gb to 16gb ram, tried autotune and liked the values it proposed. Adjusted vfs.zfs.arc_max to half RAM, and vfs.zfs.arc_free_target to ~%30 of RAM. I run jails, so I like the extra bit of free space.

Also had to clear my SEL in ipmitool.


11.3-U2.1 appears faster on my system, rock solid.

EDIT: yup, it passed the test! Non-stop rsync for ~2 days now, latest update really took care of trap12, stable as can be.

Thanks to everyone building these releases! :D
