I don’t know what --timeout actually do in terms of rclone mount but it has been a work of wonder!
By setting the --timeout value to 30m, the total cpu and memory usage that is being used during extensive multiple PLEX Scanning, media analysis and media playback has dropped 50%. This is super awesome!
My plex scans feels so much faster while total cpu and memory usage is down by 50%. I scanned over 9000 movies and around 15000 subtitles in just under 2 hours.
This made me curious what exactly does --timeout do that impact plex, rclone cpu and memory usage so much. And what’s the negative part of making the value bigger?
