I switched over to cmount on an iMac running MacOS 10.14.6
Running two mounts on separate teamdrives side by side, cmount is substantially faster at showing folders/files in Finder and also in initializing streams. Thank you!
Is there some basic info about cmount in the wiki, so I can point others to the feature (aside from rclone cmount --help ). I understand it takes time for the wiki to catch up with the new release/features. Asking only in case it is there and my small search-brain cannot find it
Thanks again for a great update. Can i check I understand the vfs-cache-mode full change please.
I currently use vfs-cache-mode writes - so in 1.5.3 I don't lose any streaming performance e.g. start-up times or playback smoothness, but any old reads will now be stored in the buffer so repeat access times could be even faster (and no data transfer)?
I have buffer-size 256M in my mount command, but I previously thought this was per stream, not for the full mount? E.g. 4 streams = max buffer of 4x256MB. Am I wrong, and it's for the whole mount and isn't affected by the number of streams and to benefit from the new full functionality, I might benefit from increasing the size of this?
This replaces the cache backend from before and you can use vfs-cache-mode full instead and it'll keep a cache of the files on disk. It works with files, not chunks though. To be exact, they are kept on disk (cache) and the buffer is a different setting.
Best to just use the defaults rather than making changes and go from there.
Edit: lol just seen --vfs-read-ahead as well. If I'm using the mount 99% to play files from Plex, how high do I go with this? To be honest, my current playback is pretty good in terms of startup times, but it'd be nice if this helps with e.g. skipping forwards
