Hi @WiteWulf

 

...I should also have added, the best custom package for your G1610T at this time, would be the 'sandybridge' package.

 

We may add an 'ivybridge' optimised package in the future, if there is sufficient demand.

 

If you haven't seen it already, take a look at : https://github.com/M...s-for-XPEnology

Is the G2120T the best choice for the 'sandybridge' package?

Hello @fyngd

 

The G2120T is also based on the 'ivybridge' architecture, so yes -  the 'sandybridge' package would be the best match at this time.

OK, I've looked around the forums before asking. Unfortunately I've not seen a good explanation on how to check what flavor of Ebmy Server is installed.
I can locate build info, but what is the proper way to confirm it's running say, the Haswell build over the generic build, if I may ask?

 

When I started playing around with Embry, I used https://synology.emb...03-2bfbd7001586 and that build installs and works fine.
But I was advised that the Haswell build would better suited to my hardware.

 

Since this is a test box, I decided to go ahead and factory reset DSM and start from scratch.

This time, I put into Package Center https://synology.emb...re=xpen-haswell and installed Emby Server like before.

Now, everything appears to be working, but I cannot tell from looking at the logs if I'm actually running on the Haswell optimized build.  What is the proper way to check on that?

Hello @MardukNT

 

If Package Center offered you the package and you were able to install, then you can be reasonably sure you configured the URL correctly.

 

However, if you want to double check, you can do the following from an SSH session:-

cat /var/packages/EmbyServer/conf/spkid

Hello James,
Thank you for teaching me the SSH command of cat /var/packages/EmbyServer/conf/spkid.

Armed with this knowledge, I can now verify for myself that I'm running on the proper/most recent build of Emby.
"EmbyServer_4.0.3.0-1_xpen-haswell"

 

--Cheers

Alright folks,

after doing some further research, I've recently rebuilt my Lenovo M700 Tiny again. So now it's running on Jun's loader 1.04b emulating a DS918+

See here for reasons: https://xpenology.co...s#comment-94177

And here for files: https://xpenology.co...nks-to-loaders/

 

Now, I was able to migrate DSM v6.2.1 in-place, but unfortunately Emby Server broke (as in it fails to run).  So I reinstalled again and so far no issues with Emby to report.

 

In fact, Emby now feels more responsive overall in this new configuration and the CPU load in general appears to be less than before.  Sorry I didn't' benchmark before rebuilding.

Where I'm noticing the biggest change is, the CPU load when creating Roku thumbnails went from a whopping 94% average load, down to a reasonable 86% average load rating.

 

So that suggests to me, additional CPU optimizations are being leveraged (likely due to better CPU/GPU support the newer DSM kernel provides) when I'm running under Jun's DS918+ image and the latest Emby Server Haswell package.

 

Hope this helps.

 

--Cheers!
