RAID-F handles high files count just fine.
Why wouldn't there be a way to test on a full scale? Or are you over-thinking it?
Just quick-format the parity drive, setup RAID-F, build parity, and see how it works. If it does not work for your setup, just uninstall and quick format the parity and you are on your way.

You will do best to trial RAID-F or tRAID and see how they each work out for you. It is easy to get your data back if not sold on either (no data migration needed).
Both can handle millions of files just fine. So, give it a go and see how things perform for your system first hand.

I only meant flexraid-f being EOL, as it hadn't had any updates for 3+ years

Thanks for that link I had not seen that post, but given the severity of the security issues with meltdown and spector I cant run this server without the security updates so will have to use something else for now  :-[
Check the official site as a new build has been pushed out a couple of months back.
Try to subscribe to http://new.flexraid.com if you aren't getting new release notifications.

Try rebuilding the parity anew.

Will a current tRAID setup import into the new FlexRAID or will you have to redo the array setup?
Existing tRAID arrays will require no migration.

Milestone Update
The I/O mechanics port is done. This was 60% of the entire RAID-F porting effort! :)

Ah, ok if it is a known bug. I would not call it normal, but if there is not fix for it, then it is what it is.

Rebuild the parity anew if you are not going to update.

I would wipe the OS and start fresh. Whether it is a virus or corrupted OS, I would not risk it.

General Discussion / Re: Physical RDM Setup

Ah, now I follow you.
If you have followed the steps in "Setting up Physical RDMs", rebooted, and your disks are still showing up as "Local Disk", then the controller is not supported.
Now, whether you should go back to passing through the controller or doing Physical RDMs the unsupported way (using vmkfstools) is a toss. I ran Physical RDMs using the unsupported way for years without issues, but that was 10 years ago and not something I would recommend these days. It is just not worth it since supported controllers are fairly cheap.

So, me, I would do Physical RDMs (supported or unsupported). You, only do Physical RDMs the supported way. :)

No need for RDM if you are passing the controller to the VMs. RDMs are for when ESXi has the controller non-pass-through.

That would make more sense. Just found out you can only run one chkdsk at a time, this is going to take a week :-/ Skipping the 6 empty drives for now; recycle bin feature of flexraid disabled, so they are actually blank).
Just noticed I was out ram during this check disk (22GB of 24GB going to dllhost.exe), doubt it's related but worth mentioning.
Run a virus scan and malware tools promptly.

Have you tried copying that file out to see if it does without issues?
Maybe it is not that file but one of the data files that compute into it. So, chkdsk the data disks also.

Quick Update
Still hard at work. The I/O port is much more involved than anticipated (mainly because I am taking the opportunity to re-engineer things I as go).
Lot of progress, but hard to document it as a linear progression.

Basically, reading that file fails prematurely. Run chkdsk to fix any potential file system issue or force bad sector reallocation.
