I currently have my Gdrive mounts set up like this:
Name — Type
Gdrive — drive <- which is just connected with my Google drive account.
MediaCrypt — crypt <- which is setup like this: “remote” = Gdrive:MediaCrypt
Both then mounted in this fashion:
rclone mount --max-read-ahead 1024k --allow-other Gdrive: /mnt/disks/Gdrive &
rclone mount --max-read-ahead 1024k --allow-other MediaCrypt: /mnt/disks/MediaCrypt &
How would or should I enable a cache mount for usage with Plex?
It is somewhat confusing to me, as I only seem to be able to mount a empty folder out of it.
For GD, you either need to use cache or vfs-read-chunk-size. I personally use:
/usr/bin/rclone mount gcrypt: /GD --allow-other --dir-cache-time 48h --vfs-read-chunk-size 32M --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit 2G --tpslimit 5 --tpslimit-burst 5 --umask 002 --bind 192.168.1.30 --log-level INFO --log-file /home/felix/logs/rclone.log
If you want to use cache, you’d configure GD->Cache->Decrypt.
It’s described here ->
Thanks for your reply.
I was able to mount and have the correct files show up as in your “/GD” directory.
I found this topic by you:
I was trying to find a way to use a nice fuse parameter for auto_cache to deal with repeat plex opening and closing of the files so based on
@ncw other post on how to leverage the native Linux fuse flags by compiling with the cmount option, I did that.
I wanted to remove my mergerfs and just use vfs-cache-mode writes to deal with uploads to remove a layer from the puzzle and I got down to my quickest analyzes/mediainfo/ff-probes so far, which leads to my quickest start times.
I build from sour…
Which was also being represented here:
Your VFS mount method seems to have received positive feedback in usage with Plex.
I guess I can just drop the Cache configuration and use your VFS command and use that mount for my Plex library, correct? Or have I missed something imported if I just used your mentioned commands here in this topic?
I currently do not use the cache myself and just use the VFS method. You are correct.
