Sab pauses on nfs.

Post by sabt » September 17th, 2011, 2:32 am

Hi,

I have sabnzbd downloading to an nfs mount, however when the download is finished it just sits in the queue with eta 0:00:0. Can anyone shed any light on what is happening? I have had a look at the logs and nothing looks out of place.

Thanks in advance.

Do you use the NFS mount as temporary storage or as final destination.
The use for temporary storage is not recommended, although I cannot tell
exactly what could be the problem here.
Try again with local storage for the temporary files.
As far as SABnzbd is concerned, all folders are equal. It's up the the OS to handle it.

Hi,

I use it as temp storage the reason being as there is not a lot of free space left on the server like 30 gigs so I need to write it out to another place.

I am running Sab on a Freebsd box. It seems that it sits in the queue finished for 2+ hours and then decides to finish.

I have found two other issues on these forums that have similar problems.

I will move this thread to the freeBSD board in the hope that the freeBSD package creator
can say something sensible about this.

So a few things.

1) Can you reproduce this problem at will, or is it intermittent?
2) If you can reproduce it at will, if you change your temp storage to a local disk, does the problem cease?

If so, we can probably narrow this down to an issue with NFS (probably its notorious file locking) instead of SAB. If that's the case:

3) Umount the NFS share and export it as an SMB/CIFS share, and mount it that way. Does the problem persist?

Hi,

Did you find a solution? :-\

I have the same problem, FreeBSD 8.2 with storage on a NFS mount.
The problem only appears if i have the temporary storage on the nfs mount.

Try my suggestions in the post above. If you change it to a local disk or CIFS/SMB, does the problem persist?

If so, you may need to avoid NFS for temporary storage.

Was there any results to this other than avoiding NFS and to use CIFS/SMB? I really would rather not use CIFS/SMB if at all possible. I have an installation using SAB that has all of its folders (except admin) stored over an NFS share and I can reproduce this every time. The machine with SAB is a VM hosted and does not have any ability to add additional local storage to it. I was hoping there may be something that can be done to get NFS working correctly?

I have sabnzbd running on a Seagate Dockstar that boots Debian squeeze from a 4 GB thumb drive; there is basically no local storage. The watch folder, temp folder, completed folder, admin folder, and log folder are all on an nfs share mounted from another Dockstar/Debian that acts as a NAS. It has worked like this for months. No problem.

Hmm, ok. I'm not sure what to try for troubleshooting then to try to figure out what the delay is... Anyone have any ideas?
