TrueNAS 13.0-U5 Maximizes Quality and your Storage Experience​

The new TrueNAS 13.0-U5 release builds on the Enterprise maturity of prior versions. The previous version, TrueNAS 13.0-U4, proved to be the highest quality release in TrueNAS history and has become the most widely-deployed version of TrueNAS. This new release includes roughly 60 new bug fixes including improvements to NFS, SMB, and replication. For Enterprise users, a specific fix corrects an incorrect alert in earlier generation NVDIMMs.

Tech Tip #124​

Did you know that you can see how well ZFS compression is working on a per-file basis? By using the TrueNAS Shell or connecting over SSH, you can use the du command with the –apparent-size (SCALE) or -A (CORE) option to list the sizes of files in a directory before compression is considered. Compare this to the same command without the extra parameter, and see how effective the inline compression in TrueNAS can be!
