CM000n posted a topic in Non-Emby General DiscussionHi Folks, I recently read, that the minimum System Requirements for MediaBrowser Server are a graphics card with at least 256MB. I'm running my MediaBrwoser Server on an old HTPC which now works as a Server/NAS in my Network. It has a AMD A6-3500 APU and 4GB DDR3 RAM. I set the max shared memory for the integrated APU graphics card to 32MB, so that I have more memory available for my SQL Server, which is running on the same machine. After Christmas I want to buy more RAM :-) Should I set my shared graphics memory then higher? Do I benefit from that? Or in short: For what needs MediaBrowser Server a graphics card? ;-) As far as I can say, MediaBrowser works pretty well with the current configuration.
I've only just recently noticed that even the smallest files on my NAS are taking 256MB of space - this adds up to many, many gigabytes of wasted space. I'm sure this has something to do with the block size that is being used. I have a single volume consisting of 8 x 2TB drives in Raid 6 using EXT4. I can't remember if there was even a block size option when I set up the volume. 256MB seems way too large. Most of that data on the NAS is obviously video, but with all the associated metadata and images taking up 256MB each, I'm filling it up far quicker than I should be. Here's an example: I ripped and encoded the Freaks and Geeks DVDs and the main series folder contains a total of 84 files (18 video files, 46 images, 19 xml files and 1 mp3) - the total size is 9.48 GB but the size on disk is 30.0 GB ! I just performed a search for "backdrop2", "backdrop3", etc in one of my folders just to see how much data I could save my deleting these additional (nice to have) backdrops - I found 167 files which would give me back 41.7 GB ! (I wonder if this is actually just Windows reporting the wrong size on disk for an EXT4 volume over Samba)
