    steffenmand got a reaction from Christopher (Drashna) in Prefetching time window?   
    The time window is how long the data will be saved on the drive. So for instance in plex this could be nice if you want to pause or rewind - else it would have to prefetch again.
     
    I use 20 MB chunks and have a 20 minimal download
     
    20 download threads and 400 MB prefetch.
     
    My time window is set to 1000

    See below, it pretty much explains the behavior.
     
     
    Yup, definitely was a memory leak, and in the prefetcher.
     
    @steffen, this is most likely why you'd see more and more issues with downloading (prefetching)

    I prefer CloudDrive over rclone every day Don't like the product ? Then just move along, no reason to try and convince other parties to switch.
     
    I'm getting 400/400 mbit with stablebit on a google drive. I'm pretty sure that some of the overhead comes from the fact that they have to do all the encryption/decryption on the fly, which causes delays.
     
    400 mbit is fine for me and this way i know my files are properly protected.
     
    Stablebit is also BETA, so it is expected to encounter bugs etc. Trust me, a lot of us have followed the application for a long time and it really has been  improved in a massive scale since

    I got 20 MB chunks (Google Drive limit, would have wanted 100 MB) and 20 download threads.
     
    1 MB trigger and 400 MB forward (20x 20 MB) got a long window of 1500 to allow for pause and rewinding
     
    Got 500 GB SSD as Cache
     
    In general the optimal settings depends on your connection speed. In my case it is 1 gbit/1gbit

    I had mostly been testing with ACD (with a custom dev limited security profile), and have only recently been trying Google Drive instead - speeds are far superior on the latter. Google traffic seems to go through Sydney, so its also a lot closer than Amazon (I'm in NZ - Amazon data goes to the US). Granted its more expensive ($10 vs $5 /mo), but its probably worth it for the speed and reliability - files on Amazon seem to have a very small chance to randomly disappear altogether.
     
    NZ is making great progress in net speeds - so long as youre not rural - Gigabit speeds are now available in a lot of places - you can get uncapped/unthrottled/unshaped 1000/500 for $130NZD ($95USD)/mo.

    Aarhus, Denmark here. 1gbit/1gbit
     
    Getting ~300-400 mbit upload and ~200-300 mbit download currently with Google Drive at 20 MB chunks. Prior we did have 100 MB chunks for a very short time, where i could utilize ~950 mbit upload and ~600-700 mbit download (miss that )
    Amazon is giving me similar results.
     
    Speed issues currently is caused by the HTTP response time which often is between 5000-15000ms, therefore eventhough the actual transfer is done in a partial of a second, the actual http response wait time is causing it to seem as a way slower transfer.
     
    The User Rate Exceeded is also a quite common error in my logs

    It really sounds great - I'm pretty sure all the high bandwidth users are pulling their limits Using it for cold storage I would only benefit from large chunks, as i rarely would need to do much more than open a folder.
     
    Really look forward to these things getting in - The rate exceeded issue also seems to have gotten better

    The point of clouddrive is the chunk system. Just mount your drive in clouddrive and you should be able to download.

    its only prefetch which will activate more threads. if you have set the prefetch amount to very little it might be able to grab that in a single thread.
     
    i prefetch 400 mb (20x20mb) at 160 sec timeout. It will start by getting with 20 threads and then 1-2 as it grabs while you read

    You will get way better speeds with stablebit as it is threaded and devided into chunks. that way you can dowbload up to 20 pieces at a time and in theory get 20x4 mbit on the download (or maybe more). As an extra benefit you get your files encrypted if you want, so they wont know what you are hosting :-)
     
    I stream video just fine using stablebit - just make sure you have upload verification turned on.
     
    You can always attach it on another computer.
     
    Plex currently just takes a loooooooong time to index in for instance plex until they get an improved pinning engine in that can save the data we need locally

    Btw! remember to use the latest beta build:
     
    http://dl.covecube.com/CloudDriveWindows/beta/download/?C=M;O=Di recommend .667 as it seems stable right now. these new betas have huge improvements to the public one :-) - call it a benefit from being on the forums and giving them input.

    In general Stablebit CloudDrive has become a really awesome app. When the advanced pinning feature comes online i will post about it on the plex forums, as it then will be a perfect solution for plex users!

    steffenmand got a reaction from Christopher (Drashna) in Increasing drive size & pie chart question   
    You have 105 MB pinned + 919 MB cached = 1024 MB. 
     
    Pinned data is data about folders etc. to make your browsing better. Cached data is partial data located on your drive to help speed up load times - this value can be changed at any point to none or a lot more.
     
    Left pie chart shows data on your drive and what parts is what. Mostly this chart will be dominated by "to upload" when you have copied data to your drive.
     
    Right side shows how much if your data is located locally vs in the cloud.
     
    You can resize your drive in the drive options located under the left pie chart.

    I don't know if it is possible, but would be nice if you somehow could be able to cache the header/file attribute data of files locally so plex could index nice and fast. Loading in some videos is taking some time as well as the constant load to check if info is the same and that the file stille exists.

    Just tried the drive with plex and everything runs fine, but indexing is slow as well as you lag while entering a title because plex tries to read the header/file attribute of each file and asks the OS to confirm the file exists.

    If it is possible it would be a nice feature to be able to activate caching of the headers and/or file attributes of each file :-)
     
    Besides helping in plex, i also believe it would make folders load faster while browsing in windows, as they use the headers as well - especially with lots of files.
     
    Perhaps using the GetFileAttributesEx function in the WinAPI
     
     
    8# I have seen threads being stuck in the state "ChecksumBlocksReadCopy" spending CPU and blocking new threads.
      I see that this issue is happening if you have upload pending and threads running for upload and you start prefetching. It will then block both upload ans download and have threads sitting stuck in "ChecksumBlocksReadCopy" state untill prefetch timeframe runs out.

    steffenmand got a reaction from Christopher (Drashna) in Moving the Cache?   
    However if the drive was made in .463 i believe that there is some features which wont work such as increasing minimal download size. This is due to the drive being made on a version before this feature, which required some changes to the chunks, became available.
     
    So if you want to utilize that, you would have to make a new drive and reupload.
     
    But just from upgrading, you may get a lot of speed improvements anyway which might be enough for you, depending on the bandwidth you have available
