Sorry for directing a question about mergerfs here, I did google "mergerfs forums" and this forum showed up as someone else asked a mergerfs question here. Please feel free to direct me somewhere else.
FUSE library version: 2.9.7 fusermount version: 2.9.7 using FUSE kernel interface version 7.19
I have mergerfs setup as follows in
192.168.0.4:/volume1/folder1 /mnt/folder1 nfs defaults,nouser,nofail 0 2 192.168.0.4:/volume1/folder2 /mnt/nfsshare1 nfs defaults,nouser,nofail 0 2 192.168.0.4:/volume1/folder3 /mnt/nfsshare2 nfs defaults,nouser,nofail 0 2 192.168.0.4:/volume2/folder1 /mnt/nfsshare3 nfs defaults,nouser,nofail 0 2 #192.168.0.4:/volumeUSB1/usbshare /mnt/usbshare1 nfs defaults,nouser,nofail 0 2 # USB Shares /dev/disk/by-uuid/244AB1B84AB186D8 /mnt/usbdrive1 ntfs-3g defaults,nouser,nofail 0 2 /dev/disk/by-uuid/4868556D68555AB0 /mnt/usbdrive2 ntfs-3g defaults,nouser,nofail 0 2 /dev/disk/by-uuid/9E0466D90466B3C5 /mnt/usbdrive3 ntfs-3g defaults,nouser,nofail 0 2 # MERGERFS Shares /mnt/usbdrive*:/mnt/nfsshare*:/mnt/usbshare* /mnt/local fuse.mergerfs defaults,nouser,sync_read,allow_other,category.action=all,category.create=eplfs,minfreespace=5G,fsname=mergerfs-local 0 3 /mnt/local/gmedia:/mnt/rclone/gmedia* /mnt/storage fuse.mergerfs defaults,nouser,sync_read,allow_other,category.action=all,category.create=eplfs,minfreespace=5G,fsname=mergerfs-storage 0 3
The above works really well, but /mnt/usbdrive2 has just today dropped below 5G free space, the other usbdrive shares and the nfsshare shares have terabytes of free space still, however.
If I try and create a folder on /mnt/local it fails, the folder itself doesn't get created on any of the drives, and thus I can't copy files to the folder that doesn't get created.
The folder is created via a batch script that gets run on windows, when the available free space is more than 5G on /mnt/usbdrive2 the script runs perfectly and the folder is created and files copied successfully.
I assumed I had done something incorrect with the category.create. So I tried epff and eplfs but both fail to create the folder on a different drive that has more free space.
My assumption is now that it's not category.create that is wrong but is instead how I am grouping the drives as I am using wildcards i.e. "
/mnt/usbdrive*:/mnt/nfsshare*:/mnt/usbshare*" does this sound like I am on to something? is there a better way to group drives perhaps without specifically naming each mount point?
Sorry I forgot to add the folder I am trying to create is a subfolder of another folder, the other exists on all the usbdrive* and nfsshare* mount points, I created the folder manually directly on each of those mount points prior to trying to create the folder in a subfolder via /mnt/local.
For example I was trying to create
/mnt/local/folder1/folder2, and the following folders already exist but are all empty except for
/mnt/usbdrive2/folder1 which contains other subfolders which have files in them.
/mnt/usbdrive2/folder1 /mnt/usbdrive3/folder1 /mnt/nfsshare1/folder1 /mnt/nfsshare2/folder1 /mnt/nfsshare3/folder1
