That was a really a non-issue because I have plenty of unused disk space. Right now, I'll stick to the current setup
you reverted to vfs because you couldnt seek backwards with cache so you're resigning to 'seeking backwards just won't work' and going back to vfs?
More or less, yes.
I use the mount solely read-only with Plex. Most of the time, I tend to watch content inside Safari, where Plex almost always transcodes.
cache, I did not notice any improvements, at all. I did however, notice a lot of downsides. RAM and swap were full, and I had well over 160% CPU usage across 4 cores, about 10 threads of rclone running (I’m assuming it’s the workers because I was running Analyze inside Plex). Then the size of chunks exceeded its defined limits.
For Kodi use in Windows I could not use cache because playback would not start until the whole file was downloaded. Has that changed somehow? Otherwise I cannot see how it could be considered faster.
sounds like VFS Mode Full. You sure using Cache Remote?
that isnt the way full mode works yet
Yes you are right, I was referring to --vfs-cache-mode full
You actually made me realize the existence of the Cache storage system. VFS is working fine for my usecase, anyway, and the fact that I read that Cache is not in development right now sorts of discourages me from trying it.
Edit: maybe I had investigated it when I started using rclone but seeing as there were caveats about Windows use I discarded it.
i just switched back to the cache after High API usage.
