Bazaar and Rclone


#1

I noticed that Bazaar seems to be super chatty in terms of making API hits. I don’t actually use it, but I’ve had it running for some time. I couldn’t figure out where the API hits were coming from and I spent some time tracking it back to Bazaar. It seems to analyze the files quite a bit. You can see the point in my quota when I turned it off today.

Just figured I’d share as if you do use Bazaar for subtitles, it is going to create some API traffic. That’s with 0 streams going on as well.

Yeah I’ve tested it with all the different settings but it still keeps giving high API hits. So what I’ve done now is migrated to a Team Drive and created multiple API’s. So now I’ve mounted the same Team Drive with 2 users and each using their own API. Then I pointed my Emby/Plex to one API/User and Bazarr to it’s own API/User.

This solves the problem that in case an API ban occurs only Bazarrs stop working and I can still watch my media. Works very well so far.

I asked about this in the bazarr discord channel as I need subs for my better half. Apparently Bazarr scans for sub files only whilst using Sonarr and Radarr for video file information.

However there is a bug in the movies scan which causes it to scan every 5 minutes. It’s fixed in develop branch. Might give it a whirl again. Last time I tried it, it absolutely thrapped the API!

Thanks for the info!! I just switched to the development branch to see how it works. Will report on it later.


#5

Thanks so much for the tip. Normally Bazarr would cause about 180.000 API hits per day and with the dev branch it’s currently sitting at about 500!
