Rclone cache remote gets unmounted and can't be remounted without reboot. How to resolve it?

#1

This is my rclone command:

sudo rclone mount --allow-other -vvv --dir-cache-time=168h --log-file=/home/tito/rclone-cache.log --cache-workers=4 --cache-db-path=/home/tito/rclone_cache --cache-tmp-upload-path=/home/tito/rclone_tmp_upload --cache-tmp-wait-time=15m --attr-timeout=1s --rc --cache-info-age=168h --vfs-cache-mode writes gdrivecache: /mnt/gdrivenoenc

For some reason it randomly tends to get unmounted after some minutes/hours.
If I execute the command again it fails to mount the remote and this is what I see in the log:

2018/08/22 22:15:48 DEBUG : Using config file from "/root/.config/rclone/rclone.conf"

How can I fix it? The only way I find out is rebooting the server and running the command again, but obviously that’s not fix really.

PS: I won’t run rclone as sudo anymore as I noticed that it was saving lot of GB’s to my /root/ folder and causing it to be full as my /root/ folder is only 20GB

Hmm, not sure… What does it say in the log when it unmounts?

Can you try the latest beta too?

You’d have to check if something still has a file / directory opened and you can do a:

fusermount -uz /mountpoint to clear it and check if any rclone is running.

root@gemini:~ ps -ef | grep rclone
felix      603     1  0 11:30 ?        00:00:15 /usr/bin/rclone mount gcrypt: /GD --allow-other --dir-cache-time 72h --buffer-size 1G --vfs-read-chunk-size 64M --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit off --umask 002 --bind 192.168.1.30 --log-level DEBUG --log-file /home/felix/logs/rclone.log

You can check by using lsof as root to see if something has a file open which is preventing the unmount:

root@gemini:~ lsof /mountpoint for rclone

Thanks for the replies.

During the last 5 days it didn’t get unmounted so I can’t provide any logs that would show why I couldn’t remount the drive after it gets unmounted.

However, can anyone help me what would be the best way to get the remote remounted in case it gets unmounted for some reason.

Currently I only have the command that I wrote in the OP added to crontab to get the command running 30 seconds after the server has been switched on.

I think using systemd works quite well for this. There are some notes on the rclone wiki about this: https://github.com/ncw/rclone/wiki/rclone-fstab-mount-helper-script#systemd

I’m not sure the .mount options allow for failure restarting though from what I was checking on.

I do this for mine now, although, I’ve honestly never had it crash:

root@gemini:/etc/systemd/system cat gmedia-rclone.service
[Unit]
Description=RClone Service

# This uses cmount as it's a built version of rclone from source

I couldn’t figure out a way run as a different user on the mount command either as I didn’t want to run as root so I left it as a service rather than a mount in systemd.

Having a similar issue to @soy_titooo I think. Here is the command that I run when mounting
rclone mount -vvv --allow-other --allow-non-empty gcache: /Users/User1/gcache

and here is the output:

not sure if I can give you anymore information or where I can get the debug file from to share

appreciate the help!

Your output looks fine and no errors.

Those look all to be network connection errors and items not connecting. Does your network break on the machine?

Yes, sometimes I have problems with my VPN which is why I think this error was happening. Now I am having a different problem.

Looks like you need to get a new token.

You can use rclone config to refresh it.

Plex token or google token?

I mean, it looks like your network is dying or something.

and plex can’t even connect to itself.

Is Plex running on the same machine?

Yes plex is running on the same machine

Are you running in a docker or something? Your machine is saying it cannot connect to itself based on those logs and it cannot connect out to the internet.

Firewall?

Not running in docker, it’s running fine after I restarted. But it will happen again at some point when I start to watch a movie.

So this is still happening, any other logs I can send to take a look at?

I’m not sure what else to recommend as your machine basically stops working on the network and that’s well beyond a rclone issue.

If there is another Mac user of rclone, maybe they could suggest something but all the logs you’ve shared point to networking for the process stopping to work.

There isn’t a rclone setting that would fix that.

Could that last line be causing an issue?
