question about the attr-timeout.
ubuntu 20.04 lts server
google cloud storage
rclone mount with parameters:

Is this attr-timeout the time the kernel (ubuntu server) call rclone, right?
What problems could I have if set it a greater value? like 1h?
If run out of server power and after restarting, am I at risk of losing data?
Cloud providers have no concept of attributes on a file so it's only a kernel call as it's retrieving the information from the directory/file cache.
