Crash during create
« on: December 11, 2017, 09:24:22 pm »
I am having issues setting up a new array. I am a long time raid-f user but have recently stared a upgrade from a aging whs system using raid-f. I have approx 8tb of data that I have copied over from my old system. Whenever I run a create to build the parity my computer reboots within 30 mins. All I see in the log is a create starting and then the restart of flexraid after the pc reboots, so no error in between.

My new system is a i7-3770, Asus p8p67 rev3.1 B3, GSKILL F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL. I also have a 800w seasonic PSU and a cheap pci sata card running a external drive to backup my c:\ drive. I have 4 identical 4 tb wd hdd and 2 seagate 2tb drive in by array. I am using 1 of the 4tb as parity and the majority of my existing data is on 2 of the other 4tb drives.

Not sure where to look to see what is causing the reboots, help is greatly appreciated.

Have you tried running stress tests of your new PC? Computing parity is fairly intensive, so it sounds like something is giving in on your new setup.

I have not run any stress tests yet. I did recreate a array with just 2 4tb drivea both empty and it worked, I just added a 2tb drive with about 200gb of data and am running a update now. If that goes OK I just plan to slowly move data and drives over until it fails again. Does this should like a good plan? What stress test programs would you suggest? I'm running Windows 10.

@OP
Just get a new power supply. The one you have does not seem to be adequate for the load.

Seasonic 850w not adequate?
http://a.co/1OHhz1L

Im only running 6 storage drives 1 os and 1 bacup drive. 30w x 8drives = 240w leaving 600w for everything else, I think that would be adequate. Please tell me if this logic is flawed.

Could you point out some free stress test software?

Ah, sorry I missed that. I saw cheap something and read that as the PSU. You were actually referring to your controller and not PSU.
