DSM 7.1 720+ with SHR - Upgrade to SSD procedure.

Just want to drop this here… last week trashed my cheap consumer SSDs for some intel enterprise. Can you spot the difference? Lol
This is the I/O wait in a proxmox host taken from a grafana dashboard, it went from an average of 20% to less than 1%
The IO wait measure in how much time a disk fulfill a request of an action write or read.

👍 Great! My reasoning for the swap was: cheapie SSD Costs less than NAS rated HD’s do!
And 1TB Drives store less than 2TB’s do!
With luck, they’ll last long enough for NAS rated SSD’s to gain in size and fall in price. In the meantime, SHR will protect the situation to a point.
Please post the how-to to test, and I’ll post my results.
 
My “experiment” costed me 50 pounds for 1TB. Clearly was enough for storing my VMs. If I want to swap my NAS drives I need at least 4TB per disk

I believe I Spent $130 for 2x 2TB SSD’s
It’s enough to store some of my local storage info, and SHR.
External ESATA SSD Stores important long term data redundantly across 3x NAS’s.
So far, I’m comfortable with my direction!
But this IS NOT our main NAS’s.
