Hello all, been digging into rclone deeper these days and found a few things I am not certain about, any idea is appreciated!
vfs/refreshoption only for directory and file names? What does the
_async trueoption people use after that do?
(Sorry my googling has failed me)
When I set the max read ahead size, is it dynamically adjusted for an app to read ahead that much, depending on how much it requests, or does rclone actually go ahead and does it by download the whole amount allotted?
When I have multiple drives mounted I always set a max cache size, does that mean each drives I mount each get that much or does it all total up to that much?
(They all use the same cache dir, like so:)
--cache-dir=/home/user/rclone/cache \ --vfs-read-chunk-size 1M \ --vfs-cache-mode writes \ --vfs-cache-max-size 40G \ --vfs-cache-max-age 2h \ --vfs-cache-poll-interval 5m \ --vfs-read-ahead 5G \
- After reading this post: New Feature: vfs-read-chunk-size
I realized that I should only being using either cache or
read-chunk. But since I do sometimes want to write to the drives I think the
cachedir and mode is still necessary.
But for things like pure media streaming and storage I should prolly add the
--vfs-read-chunk-size 128M \ --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit 2G \
options and set a
--read-only so that way the read chunk and work properly. Is this line of thought correct?
- Lastly, are the
read-chunk-limitalso a per drive basis or is it a global limit? Since my vps only got limited amount of space I would like to have a total allowance.
Thanks for looking!
