bittorrent sync
« on: April 27, 2014, 11:50:56 am »
Hello,

I'm trying to set up bitorrent sync on flexraid drive and it seems that bittorrent sync constantly freezes up.
Flexraid is set up in Storage Pool configuration. I tried to set it up to different drives and it works fine.
Any thoughts on how I could get this to work?

I remember there is a post around on configuring BT for this or a sticky.

However, I'd recommend against putting downloading files on storage pool, especially if you are using snapshot.

I get the exact same behavior. I launch BT sync and flexraid usage goes up to 80% and BT Sync becomes unresponsive. Very annoying.

I think it probably has something to do with the fact that BT Sync indexes folders all the time, and with the additional Flexraid overhead, everything is done. People over a t BT Sync will tell you to set folder_rescan_interval to a higher value, but this is just addressing the symptoms, not the problem.

If anyone figures it out, I would love to know the answer!
