Major Stability issues with M1 Mac Mini, Big Sur 11.6, SoftRaid 6.1

(@jduprey)

I just got an M1 Mac Mini and a ThunderBay 4.  Its a pretty clean setup with virtually nothing installed on it.  After installing SoftRaid it crashes a LOT.  I've been working with SoftRaid support on trying to diagnose the problem, but progress is very slow.

Things verified:

  1. M1 Mac Mini, BigSur 11.6
  2. SoftRAID 6.1
  3. ThunderBay 4 with 4 older WD Red Drives in good working condition
  4. Startup Security has "Reduced Security" enabled and "Allow user management of kernel extensions from identified developers" checked.
  5. Full disk access has been granted to both "SoftRAID 6.1" and "SoftRAID_Monitor"

The latest .supt file after crash is attached.  (I've generated many after each crash..)

Also the crash report is listed at the bottom as well.

The last thing the tech support requested was that I downgrade from 6.1 to 6.0.5.  I cannot find it.  Support followed up and said I could find it here:   https://www.softraid.com/support/download-latest-version/  - but I only see the latest 6.1 or previous 5.x versions.  Can anyone point me to where I can get 6.0.5.  A google search only reveals one third party site I could download from, but that is not something I generally do.

Other details:

  • I have uninstalled SoftRAID and created a Volume in both RAID 0 and RAID 10 using DiskUtil with no stability issues.  (The latter, I did a full 2TB copy to the drive and then worked on the files on that volume - Apple Photos and Music.). So I don't think stability is with the drives or enclosure.  Regardless, problems with drives or the enclosure should not cause the whole system to crash.
    • With this setup, the only thing I did observe is the ThunderBay does into periodic cycles of sleep to awake every 5-10 seconds.  Very annoying to listen to and probably hard on the enclosure and the drives themselves.  Is this a separate issue?
  • With SoftRAID installed, I manage to create a RAID 5 volume.  Sometimes I even manage to copy over my 2TB of data (sometimes not).  Either way it becomes so unstable, I have to unplug the drive to keep from crashing on log in.

I have spent over a week back and forth with tech support trying to resolve this issue.  At this point, unless there are some major revelations soon, I think I will have to request a refund for SoftRAID.. and hopefully resolve the sleep/wake cycling so that I can at least keep the enclosure and use DiskUtil's software RAID.

Crash report.

My guess is this only happens with RAID 4 and RAID 5. If you create a RAID 0 volume for instance, I assume no problem?

the crash is the Thunderbolt controller crashing. I have a dozen users with a problem like this, we are purchasing a user system to be able to get a failing system in house, but it is a week away at least from completing the transaction.

Can you also try with a "clean install"? (create a new volume in your startup disk with Disk Utility and install Big Sur into it, boot into recovery mode (tap, then hold the power key on M1), and reinstall macOS, then point it to the new volume.

I suspect it will not have this crash, but if you are willing to try this and let me know?

So far, I do not know the cause, but it is not any third party issue, as I have seen crashing systems with nothing installed. It is a frustrating bug, which is why we arranged to purchase a users system, so we can bring it to Apple engineering directly to work with them on this.

@softraid-support, thank you for following up.  Since I'm going to have to trash the data that I've already copied anyway, I'm willing to reinstall SoftRaid and try testing it with the RAID 0 volume.  I've been vacillating between RAID 0 and 5 anyway.  

In my support e-mail chain, support recommended falling back to 6.0.5.  Is there any realistic hope that will work?  If so, where can I find it.  Support pointed me to the download page https://www.softraid.com/support/download-latest-version/ but I can only find the LATEST version 6.1 and not 6.0.5.  Maybe I'm blind.

If RAID 0 works without crashes, and there is hope that SoftRAID will get fixed at some point in the future, I'll keep SoftRAID and run in RAID 0.  I'd love to try as you suggest and reinstall the OS, but I just don't have the time.  I've already spent about a week (in my evenings) to try to resolve this issue.  

PS I tested RAID 10 with diskutil and it worked flawlessly - a bit slower than 0 and 5, but it was hard to lose have my storage capacity.  What concerned me was that when I pulled a drive to test failure, I got no alerts.. This is where I think SoftRAID may excel - active monitoring and alerting.

PPS. I do appreciate that challenge SoftRaid developers must be facing.  This sounds like a very difficult problem and they are not completely in control of the situation given the dependencies on the underlying OS.  Still, its a tough pill for a customer to swallow - paying $100 for something that isn't just buggy, but catastrophic to their whole system.  I've looked around a lot for alternatives and there are no great ones (best I can find is DiskUtil + some smart disk monitoring software - which pales in comparison). I DO hope you resolve.

@jduprey

We have had a few users who created a clean install second volume, which does not panic, so this bug clearly has some component in the operating system. We are buying a crashing system to try to figure this out and bring it to Apple engineering if necessary.

RAID 0 does not seem to be affected by this problem.

 

6.0.5 will not help, we can get it to users, but the version of SoftRAID does not matter.

Hope this helps.

@softraid-support, it DOES help.  Thank you.  I have reinstalled 6.1, setup RAID 0 on 3 of my 4 disks.  (The other disk, also initialized by SoftRaid (hopefully for active monitoring), I will use for local snapshots / scratch.)

3 more hours and my copy should complete.  If it appears stable, I'll work with this and hope SoftRaid and Apple can get to the bottom of it.

@softraid-support, I see SoftRAID 6.2 has been released and from the release notes it appears to address a number of issues including the OS crashes when using RAID 5.

My RAID 0 experiment was a partial success.  SoftRAID appeared stable in this configuration and then it reported a failed drive.  (Not trusting it, given the stability issues experienced, I rebuilt with DiskUtil RAID.  The same disk failure appeared confirming it.). I just put in brand new drives (4 x Seagate IronWolf 4TB NAS) and am running SoftRAID's certify on them.

Given the 6.2 release, is it safe to use RAID 5 now?

I believe so. The biggest issue is the M1 users who get kernel panics connecting the enclosure with RAID 5.

I am convinced this is a macOS issue. I just received a customer enclosure that was crashing his system 100% of the time and there were no crashes on two machines in my office, with both Monterey and Big Sur. this kind of confirms this is an OS issue.

Also, other users have reported a clean install fixed their panics.

We are waiting for a ordered custom configuration to show up, so we can replace a customers and get their system in and figure out what is causing the panics. It may take another week, as the system they have has "all" the extras and there was a wait for it in the Apple store.

I see.. so are the fixes mentioned in 6.2 in this regard merely catches to yet-to-be-explained exceptions to avoid the kernel panic?

The release notes mention issues with RAID 5 and 64 KB unit size. I seem to recall SoftRAID recommending a 64 KB size when I setup RAID 5.

 

New features in version 6.2:

Adds support for macOS 12 Monterey.

Adds support for creating and mounting RAID 4 and 5 volumes using a stripe unit size of 64 KB.

Bugs fixed in version 6.2:

Fixes a bug which prevented the SoftRAID application from displaying the UUID of volumes.

Removes preference for manually loading the driver. The driver is now manually loaded anytime a Mac is running macOS 11.

• Fixes a kernel panic bug in the SoftRAID driver which occurs when a RAID 4 or 5 volume, which uses a stripe unit size of 64 KB is attached to a Mac.

We did add 64k support for RAID 5, but that will be for Windows. It has no performance benefit on a Mac.

I would not use it. There are still some issues, we are maturing this ability. You may never encounter a problem, but there is no reason to use 64k on a Mac yet. Once SoftRAID Windows supporting 5 is released, then this ability supports cross platform compatibility with great performance on both platforms.

@softraid-support with SoftRAID 6.2, I've been running without crashes a very active RAID5 configuration for five days now.  I used the default 16k chunk size recommended.  6.2 seems to have fixed the problem for me or at least trapped whatever condition was causing the whole OS to crash.  I hope it remains stable.  Access to the RAID5 volume has been fast and this setup makes my ThunderBay 4 a ideal storage solution for me.  I hate that it took several weeks to get here, but I hope this will be the end of the stability issues.  

Where is the best place to watch for any updates on M1 compatibility / issues?  There is here: https://www.softraid.com/support/important-notices/, but 6.2 has not been announced there yet.

Is there a time when SoftRAID can recommend upgrading to Monterey?

SoftRAID 6.2 appears ready for Monterey now, there have been very few new issues reported and some bug fixes in Monterey.

Let me see if I can get that web page updated.

@softraid-support I may have spoken too soon about 6.2.  After 5+ days of uptime and fairly active use of the volume, I had another kernel panic.  I had 2 more kernel panics on restart.  I had to unplug the ThunderBay4 to login without a panic.  After waiting a bit, I plugged the ThunderBay4 back in and it seems to be OK now.. 

If it helps, I'm attaching the latest supt file and the kernel panic text...

Can you disable Spotlight on this volume (System Preferences/Spotlight, create an exemption for this volume, restart)

In your system log, there are tons of file system errors/indexing it appears, and the panic seems to be in Thunderbolt, so possibly the file system.

Its worth a try.

@softraid-support, I added thunder bay to the indexing exclusion list around the time that you shared this with me.  I cannot recall if I actually rebooted to test it at that time.  

Attached screenshot of spotlight exclusion:

Regardless, I had the need to reboot earlier this week and it crashed within seconds of seeing the TB4 and mounting it.  The trick of unplugging it while booting and then plugging it in after logging in did NOT work as it had in the past either.  See what I *believe* to be the latest logs from kernel panic pasted at the bottom.  

Anyway, I gave up on it due to work demands and just came back to it today.  I left the Mac running with TB4 unplugged and me logged in.  On a whim, when I was logged in, I plugged TB4 in.  It did not crash this time and seems to be working fine.  

Note, that in one of my tests, I unplugged everything but the Thunderbay4 and the monitor (HDMI) - there were no other third party hubs or devices in the mix.  It still crashed.

I'm on BigSur now.  Is there any reason to believe SoftRaid and Mac would be happier together on Monterey?  I usually wait 4-6 months before I move to the next major OS version.  Is SoftRaid and Apple any closer to resolving these remaining stability issues?

We have some small progress. Can you try the 6.2.1 beta 3?

Best is "uninstall SoftRAID driver" then restart and install the driver.

What I want to see is if this solves your specific issue, or if not another crash log.
