Too many api calls

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

hi, looks like im using too many API calls on my account
I use plex, sonarr and radarr (Analyse video files and intros turned off)
i currently mount my drive like the below, which ive gotten from others on here but couldnt tell if they would work the same with box as most others are on different cloud. would these be the best options?

rclone version.

rclone v1.62.2-DEV

Which cloud storage system are you using?


The command you were trying to run

To mount

screen -dm rclone mount --buffer-size=32M --dir-cache-time=3h --vfs-cache-mode=minimal --vfs-cache-max-age=6h boxcrypt: /home/media/box

Then use mergerfs to merge my local and rclone into one drive

mergerfs -o rw,use_ino,func.getattr=newest,category.action=all,category.create=ff,cache.files=auto-full,dropcacheonclose=true /home/media/local\*:/home/media/box /home/media_all

i also do a upload to box once a week

0 16 * * 3 rclone move /home/media/local boxcrypt: --log-file /home/opt/rclone/logs/upload.log --fast-list --min-age 4d --max-size 5G

I would use:

rclone mount --vfs-cache-mode=full --vfs-cache-max-size 100G --vfs-cache-max-age=9999h --tpslimit 16 --tpslimit-burst 0 boxcrypt: /home/media/box

Adjust --vfs-cache-max-size to decide how much disk space you want to use for cache

Box has 1000 API calls per minute threshold hence good to start with--tpslimit 16 - if you still see errors decrease it even further - e.g. on dropbox 12 seems to work well. You have to find the best value for box yourself.
