Re: Raspberry Pi as NAS / private cloud

Have here two pi's serving RAID 1 NAS for some years (3? 4?) now without problems. One is in an old computer chassis (with a rather new power supply used for the pi and the 3.5" HDDs), the other one in the chassis of an old HDD/DVD TV player/recorder (using the power supply enclosed). Re-sync might ...

Re: Stretch slow - much slower than Jessie

Yeah, and so ever-faster hardware has to compensate ever-slower software. For more than a decade I buy bigger hardware just to compensate for slowing down software. From win 3.1 to win 95 to win xp there was development, since then there is plateau/regression. Linux I follow only for some 5 years no...

Re: New Raspberry Pi model 3B+ 1.4 GHz, 330Mbit Ethernet, 802.11ac, PoE

I think I'm not alone with my deep disfavour of all device with built-in wifi/BT, therefore my question: Are there any plans to upgrade the raspi 2 (with the already 64bit CPU...) to include the upgraded LAN? That would be really perfect, as I avoid the raspi 3 wherever possible (and removing driver...

Re: New Raspberry Pi model 3B+ 1.4 GHz, 330Mbit Ethernet, 802.11ac, PoE

I don't use wireless/BT. So basically faster Ethernet and faster CPU. Is it worth buying? Let's say for a RAID1 NAS? Will the faster ethernet increase the throughput by factor 3?

I typically max out the NAS with about 8.3 MB/s, so are 20 MB/s feasible with 3B+? :-)

Accessing the motion stream with Firefox didn't show the latency built-up. But now the misteryyyyyyyyyy is solved! For the cam with frames turning black/white half-normal the frame rate was to low.

Re: Motion building up latency of more than 1 minute over days

It's apparently VLC player 3.0.0 building up the latency (buffering?) of more than 1 minute for this specific raspi cam with motion streaming, but not for other cams with identical SD-card images of the same install of Raspbian stretch with motion.

Very strange....

Funny thing: If I see the latency in VLC (time printed in pic) and stop the service on the raspi with the cam: sudo service motion stop ...the stream in VLC continues for more than a minute, before ending. So somewhere on the raspi with the cam module the pics are buffered before sending out via htt...

The latency doesn't build-up gradually, but suddenly, 1h ago I have 2-3 sec latency, now I have 2.5 minutes (!) of latency in the VLC player replay.

Stopping/starting motion service brings everything back to normal.
