I just wanted to configure Rclone mount with Gdrive, but just using RAM.
I was checking VFS options, and just wanted to know first of all, if any sort of VFS is needed for VFS Directory Cache to be working.
Then I would like to know if I can just use --buffer-size flag to make my files available to the system but just from the RAM, or it will be needed also the information to be cached locally in a drive. If thats the case I guess I will need to make a RAMDisk, or any other option is avaiable in Rclone? Of course this is just for read only, and no writting is required.
you can use the vfs file cache and store that in the ramdisk.
note, that --vfs-cache-max-size is a soft limit and possible for rclone to use more space.
and if a file is open/locked/in-use, rclone will not remove it.
and for my mounts, when streaming from cloud, i use
--- do not use --vfs-cache-mode, in effect --vfs-cache-mode=off
So I do not know if the same problem I am having with Plex is the one in that github page, I am literally having plex crashing when changing of resolution, however I have VFS mode in FULL, and don't know why Plex is acting as such.
Here my config:
But the plan was to run everything in RAM and not in disk and killing the disk, when I have enough RAM, just wanted a tiny buffer for the streams to be fluid and for the full tree directory to be cached for quick media refresh in Plex.
What I mean with this is that Firetv or Android phones are having the same issue. I was able to extract the logs from my phone: https://pastebin.com/Lzd5RpA8
The log is covering from the quality change to the app restarting/crashing, and reopening again
Already done it through my windows client and that is not happening. However when I reproduce local videos through plex this android behaviour is not happening, it started when changing to cloud service
I have already sent them the android logs to dig out what can be the issue.
Also I am downloading to local one of the films that is crashing remotely. And hope I can reproduce the issue locally, since it should as I have VFS active, if not I guess something weird might be ongoing with the VFS
