Help with High CPU

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I've been having a headache using Rclone with high CPU usage, sometimes hitting 100% which is causing myself a lot of heachache.

Intel Xeon E3-1275V6 PLUSNIC 1 Gbit

  • Intel I219-LM
    HDD2x HDD SATA 4,0 TB Enterprise
    RAM4x RAM 16384 MB DDR4 ECC

Using Google Drive Storage system.

rclone mount gdrive:/Media ~/gdrive--timeout 1h --dir-cache-time 1000h --poll-interval 1m --vfs-read-chunk-size 64M --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit=2048M --buffer-size 64M --drive-chunk-size 64M --tpslimit 10

I assume I have something amiss with this command - could anybody provide me some feedback?

What sort of problems is it causing?

How are you measuring the CPU usage?

That is quite a powerful box.

What are you doing with the mount? How many users, how much traffic?

Are you using crypt? That uses CPU.

So it seems to be sitting at arround 30% during the day but will spike up to 100%
The user count is around 75-100 at the minute.
Not using Crypt.

75 simultaneous users is quite a lot.

So what sort of transfer is the server doing in Mbit/s?

You could try doing a CPU profile as documented here:

That would tell us what rclone is doing mostly.
