the movies starting very slowly. the scanning time of Plex I don't care because it's in the background but the loading time to start a movie or show is very slowly.
the sysytemd script I found already but I really scared to use it because I don't understand it. let me test your idea of --vfs-cache-mode=full and see how my Plex will react to it. I will report here again after testing. thank you for sharing your idea
Just to understand your situation better, are using a local or remote server to host Plex? Latency is mostly an issue between the server and the clients, if remote. GDrive alone shouldn't affect this too much.
My Plex server is remote, with a latency of about 80 ms on average to my local clients. Playback is pretty much instantaneous, unless there are issues with my ISP's peering. Internet here is 500/500.
my Plex is remote too.
my Latenzy to the Domain (Cloudflare)
64 bytes from xxx: icmp_seq=0 ttl=50 time=58.842 ms
64 bytes from xxx: icmp_seq=1 ttl=50 time=58.996 ms
64 bytes from xxx: icmp_seq=2 ttl=50 time=59.127 ms
64 bytes from xxx: icmp_seq=3 ttl=50 time=60.051 ms
The latency directly yo my Server is:
64 bytes from yyy: icmp_seq=0 ttl=51 time=178.473 ms
64 bytes from yyy: icmp_seq=1 ttl=51 time=179.879 ms
64 bytes from yyy: icmp_seq=2 ttl=51 time=178.783 ms
64 bytes from yyy: icmp_seq=3 ttl=51 time=178.466 ms
by this it looks better about the Plex reaction time but now NZBget can see my Content.
it looks like the drive is empty, check on google online all files are there. mount by standard as I did before all is there again.
