Is my config OK? (Plex, Gdrive, Radarr, Sonarr)

Hi, i'm new to rclone and i think i have gotten it set up to do what i need.
I couldn't find much info regarding the Plex plug in, but i added it as i use plex. What does it do?
Is my config optimal to work around API limit hits?

What is the best way to get Plex to scan new data? Usen "Connect" in Sonarr and radarr to make plex scan for new content?

I have 2x512 GB SSD's for rclone-storege (e:)
Gigabit fiber
64 GB RAM, and a six core CPU

rclone v1.52.1

  • os/arch: windows/amd64
  • go version: go1.14.4

Using Google Drive

rclone command:
c:\rclone\rclone.exe -v mount gd-nicho: z: --dir-cache-time=160h --cache-chunk-size=20M --cache-info-age=168h --cache-workers=5 --cache-tmp-upload-path E:\rclone.temp --cache-tmp-wait-time 60m --buffer-size 512M --vfs-cache-mode writes --cache-dir E:\rclone.temp --config C:\Users\Nicholas.config\rclone\rclone.conf

My config:
type = drive
client_id =(removed)
client_secret = (removed)
scope = drive
token = (removed)
team_drive = (removed)
plex_url =
plex_username = (removed)
plex_password = (removed)

i could be wrong but i do not see a remote using the cache

type=drive does not support plex_ flags.
only type=cache support plex flags.

--cache-tmp-wait-time is also only for type=cache.
--cache-workers is only for type=cache

for plex, there should not be a need for cache backend.

@asdffdsa Thank you so much for your reply. You made things a lot clearer to me.

i will remove the flags mentioned.

I am uploading a good amount of data every day now, riunning *arr scans and i daily run into rate limits.

Is it possible to use more than one gdrive/gsuite account for one drive? To double the amount of data/api hits?

sure, glad to help.

i do not plex, gdrive, radarr and sonarr

there is a difference between data limits and api limits.

so you need

  • post your command.
  • post some errors from the debug log
  • post your config, be sure to redact ids, secrets and what not.

this is considered the guide
