I am currently using GD to store some TV shows and photos, and reading them with Plex Media Server, so what I did, was to mount GD with rclone as a local storage. But it takes for ages, to pull out all the info of a single folder with multiple files.
I have my own API key. Is there any flags I can add to the mount command to speed the proccess a bit more?
I need to check that guide, but I was meaning, windows, plex, whatever service or app that wants to pull information out of an rclone mounted folder, it takes like more than 10 secs, depending on how much files are inside.
I have standard config as you can see, so I need to figure out what flags could optimize my setup.
Everything works pretty snappy with my set up. I notice no lag doing anything on the Union drive. The VFS mount if I view it in explorer can be a little leggy sometimes (iirc. I don't go in there too often).
Ive not tweaked that setup since I wrote the guide, so those settings have been good for me for months.
And it's been quite helpfull, I mean, it seems that each directory that loads, it caches up, so the next time it loads, it is quicker, but for the ones I never accessed, it is still as slow as the first time.
My folder structure, is just an structure of maybe 50 files in 1 folder. Not folders inside of folders, as it i a Media server.
I don't really browse the vfs mount in windows explorer very often but the few times I have it isn't the fastest thing ever and it can sometimes freeze windows explorer for a while. One thing I found that makes it load slightly better is in windows explorer playing around with these optimize options, I have never bothered to look into this as to why this helps..
I had a look through Pepjr's guide you linked and I have a very similar setup to that with a union mount on windows running plex and I don't run into any issues at all other than trying to browse it using windows explorer, I suspect it's more of a windows / winfsp issue than an rclone issue.
