I requested the increase of 1000 to 10000 calls per user in GDrive API and they sent me this email:
What I need to response? THANKS!!
**Thanks for your interest in receiving a higher quota for the Drive API for Project ID XXXXXXXXXX. Your request does not include enough details. If you would like to request for more, please provide the following information: **
The number of users.
Average number of requests per day/per user (calculation describing your expected usage of the API).
Which API methods will be called and what will be the frequency.
Are you polling the API to check if files have been modified?
Have you implemented exponential backoff?
Are you requesting for 1000 QPS? Is this temporary request or permanent?
Simply listing folders with 10K+ files triggers >10QPS and causes 403s. I asked for 100QPS and I suspect that support noticed 25% errors on queries so I got them.
If you consider your Drive a NAS with only few big files, API won’t be a problem indeed.
Plexdrive and rclone are different in how they buffer. I use plexdrive to do my basic mount and since I’m encrypted with rclone, I mount that over the plexdrive mount and have a fuse mount for the local and cloud storage together.
My mount script looks like:
/home/felix/scripts/plexdrive --chunk-size=25M -o allow_other -v 2 /GD >>/home/felix/logs/plexdrive.log 2>&1 &
# Mount the 3 Directories via rclone for the encrypt
/usr/bin/rclone mount \
--uid 1000 \
--gid 1000 \
--umask 002 \
--stats 1m \
media: /media &
# Wait a sec
/usr/bin/unionfs-fuse -o cow,allow_other,auto_cache,sync_read /local/movies=RW:/media/Movies=RO /Movies
/usr/bin/unionfs-fuse -o cow,allow_other,auto_cache,sync_read /local/tv=RW:/media/TV=RO /TV
With my rclone.conf:
type = crypt
remote = /GD/media
filename_encryption = standard
keys and such
You’re either exceeding the global limits assigned to rclone’s api or the user limits. Remember that you’re sort of sharing some of those limits. How are you copying files? Above you mentioned ‘scanning’ but now you mentioned copying so im trying to understand what you’re doing at the time (and before).
