Dear All,

anyone install proxmox to this model before?
i use proxmox 8 and use zfs raid 1 for two hardisk.

after format then putty to server ,very slow and try access the web gui also slow.

is new hardisk.

1TB x hardisk.

please advise.thanks
"Very slow" depends on so many details... which we do not know.

The disks itself are okay? Are they named sda + sdb? If so please post the outout of smartctl -A /dev/sda (and sdb).

If you do not find the disks: what gives lsblk -t -f?

To get an idea of the performance of your system: create a new dataset zfs create -o compression=off rpool/fio; cd /rpool/fio and run something like fio --name=randrw --ioengine=libaio --direct=1 --numjobs=1 --rw=randrw --bs=4k --size=10G --runtime=300 --time_based --rwmixread=75 (this is an example from my "history"; it will run 5 minutes). You may repeat with "--numjobs=16" or so...

If fio is not available install it via apt install fio

Please put your output in [CODE]...[/CODE]-Tags.
iirc, HP disable disk writecache by default. so slowdown the already slow hdd...
