macOS Ventura 13.1, anytime I use rclone to push a local file from a mac to a mounted SMB volume, it works for about 1-2 minutes at full speed then starts counting up until the laptop just reboots itself.
rclone debug just shows the files going out, then thats it. Ends there.
I uninstalled homebrew rclone, installed rclone directly, same result. Transfer works as expected for a few minutes, then it starts freaking out, everything gets extremely laggy and windows server starts eating all the CPU/threads. Leave it long enough and it black screens, eventually the machine reboots.
It doesn't appear to be. Things run smooth for about 5-7 minutes, then it just locks up until the client restarts or you force a power cycle. I can hear the drives on the mounted volume start making noise right as everything locks up.
I am pushing to a mounted SMB volume over the OS with local paths for the data. Not sure if that is a variable. But I've crashed a Mac Mini M1 and the 14" MBP M1 Max a few dozen times while pushing data over 10gbe network.
That would be a pretty big bug considering SMB is their official choice. Wouldn't surprise me I guess. I can't recall if I had the issue in Monterey, but I know I've used rclone to push a lot of video production media around.
I haven't been able to use rclone with the config setup with an smb remote on a Mac. Either I am bad at searching or Google isn't what it used to be. But the configuration isn't very straightforward.
When I have an SMB remote configured, it just returns Failed to create file system for "remote:test": didn't find section in config file
I pushed the same set of files over a locally mounted apfs volume it got sluggish in the middle of a 1TB transfer, but it's fine overall it seems. At least its further than any network share has gotten in the last two days. But it did complete without crashing the machine. So maybe it is SMB in Ventura. I wish I had a Monterey machine around to test it with.
is the smb server/remote also a mac? if so you might need to add a new user on the server (tick ‘sharing only’), enable that user under file sharing > advanced options, and use that user in the rclone config wizard
What is the hostname supposed to be for the remore? the documentation shows localhost.
I am using TruenNAS / ZFS on the remote server over SMB connection.
smb://email@example.com/VolumeName/ is how I typically connect.
I was able to send to an offsite remote and local / usb disk without crashing the OS.
-vv / logs doesnt really seem to show anything. The files are moving, then it just stops. rclone doesnt appear to be consuming a ton of RAM. But once things start to hang, I can't see results anymore. The client gets REALLY sluggish and unresponsive until it goes dark.
I have access to macOS Monterey today, so I will try that next.
I have the same problems when syncing to my NAS via SMB
I experimented with the number of transfers & checkers, this seems to help a bit.
But is depends on how much data I have to sync.
Perhaps a pause after each x files will fix it? I have no clue.
