I just wanted to check something in order to try and improve my current setup. The below config is working fine but I recently changed some values and changed the --vfs-cache-mode to 'full' from 'writes'.
I was wondering what are the benefits of using full instead of writes and is there anything else I could possibly do to improve my mount args? Also when using 'full' do I always need 'vfs-read-ahead'?
I'm not having any issues specifically, but just wondering if there is any way to improve things and if there are any potential gains that I'm missing.
What is the problem you are having with rclone?
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
the goal of the vfs cache, is to have rclone emulate traditional local file system.
and how much emulation is required.
in short, one primary difference is how to handle read-only files writes - files opened for read only are read directly from the remote, files are not cached full - files opened for read only are cached.
let us know what you do with the mount, plex/emby/streaming, upload files or what?
we can suggest tweaks to your command and how the vfs cache mode affects that.
and can you post the redacted output of the rclone config file?
