Excessively noisy server

Hello !

I just finished installing TrueNAS on my Vikings D8 but I don't understand why the computer is so noisy ...
The fans are running at full speed.

I posted a thread on the Truenas forum but I got partial information despite all the help they tried to give me.

Here is the link to the site where I bought the computer if you want to have the configuration :

i heard about a solution by the vendor named "powerd".
Is it easy to set up for a newbie ?



PS : Here's the link of my thread on Truenas forum :

Note: this is a FreeBSD-centric reply; on other derivates, YMMV!

You can try
Code:
powerd_enable="YES"
powerd_flags="-a adaptive -b adaptive"
in /etc/rc.conf and then run service powerd start. This should 'dial' the machine down to the lowest possible power usage, without responding to every event immediately. If you want to have it respond to increases/decreases in load faster, use hiadaptive. This may make the server (and noise) a bit jumpy. If the server really only does background work (no interaction needed), you can even use minimum.

Sorry but I don't find rc.conf file in /etc , should I create it or is it a problem of permissions maybe ?

No, and there you go. TrueNAS is not FreeBSD, and any advice about TrueNAS should be answered by them. I'm sure they have power/energy settings somewhere, but they've made their own system, so they'll know best.
