rclone_cache into ram

Since our servers usually have a lot of ram that is not used at all, there is a possibility to save some ssd memory by putting the rclone_cache into the ram.

IMPORTANT! | Only for advanced Users

You should give rclone at least 50GB cache! This tutorial is only recommended if you have at least 128GB RAM.


For this we proceed as follows:

  1. how much ram is available? in my example 128GB
  2. the /dev/shm directory is the ram cache in linux, by default ½ of the ram However, we can increase this.
  3. sudo nano /etc/fstab add tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults,size=116g 0 0

  4. disable swap: sudo swapoff -a

  5. sudo nano /opt/appdata/system/mount/mount.env

  6. change TMPRCLONE=/ram_cache

  7. change VFS_CACHE_MAX_SIZE=80G

  8. reboot machine sudo reboot -n

  9. check if /mnt/unionfs get still mounted, if not redeploy mount app ( sudo mountpoint /mnt/unionfs/ & sudo docker log mount )
