Hey all. Great forum, awesome software.
I’m running a Plex server off my Nvidia Shield, which is connected to a Samba server 1TB drive that runs off my WRT1900ACS OpenWrt router––def not the most efficient setup but it works. I also run a seedbox on the other drive connected to the router. Please keep this in mind when you look at my config. There’s limited memory and processing power on the router (512MB DDR3) so everything is built with that in mind. Believe it or not, Plex streams well.
I am a little confused between
rclone mount and
rclone cache. Do all the options listed on the mount manpage apply to the cache manpage, From my understanding it seems the --vfs options are only applicable to non-cache mounts, but it’s not clear.
Anyway, below is my config. Questions right now:
- Do all the commands I put in mount apply to cache?
- I haven’t tested adding more movies to the drive and triggering a Plex rescan. Not quite sure how I’m going to do that yet, since right now my downloads are on another drive and get uploaded via a separate script, but with this I would have to manually update the library… any suggestions?
- Any suggestions to my config below to free up more memory? My memory on the router goes from 30% free to 5% free (linux has great built-in memory management) but I thought with this config no memory would be getting used. Any suggestions? VSZ is 979m 159%
- For those who are curious: Plex takes about 5 secs to load the file data then another 10 seconds to buffer the video. Load on the router is around .5 to .9 whenever I stream one movie. Haven’t tried multiple yet. Seeking takes about 10 seconds to jump around.
- I’m thinking about transferring this process to the Nvidia SHIELD since it has 3GB memory and I want my router focused on router things. However I can’t find an rclone android app, which means I’m going to have to go hard and root it, etc. Any plans for an android app to avoid this?
[movies] type = cache remote = remote:/Movies plex_url = plex_username = plex_password = chunk_path = /mnt/a/Downloads/cache chunk_total_size = 250G chunk_size = 15M chunk_clean_interval = 15m0s chunk_no_memory = true db_path = /mnt/a/tools/rclone/dbcache db_purge = false info_age = 1d workers = 3
Here’s the command I run on startup (any way to put these in the config file?)
rclone mount movies: /mnt/a/Movies \ --no-checksum \ --no-modtime \ --allow-other \ --attr-timeout 10s \ --tpslimit 8 \ --sys-log \ --log-level INFO \ --daemon \
