Description of issue:
I’m setting up Sonarr on local server, queuing downloads on seedbox.
Originally I was trying to use SSHFS to mount my seedbox to a local mount and use the Remote File Paths feature in Sonarr. This worked, but was super slow because SSHFS is crazy slow for me. I’ve spent last 2 days trying to speed it up and now just giving up even though I liked the simplicity.
Instead, I was looking to do a different approach and wondering how Sonarr works with Remote File Paths and if what i want to try is possible.
I was thinking of doing this:
- Sonarr on local server, still queuing downloads on seedbox
- After torrents are complete, seedbox hard links files to a sync folder
- Local server then mirrors that seedbox sync folder locally (e.g. using LFTP, rclone, etc)
- Sonarr then looks locally in that local sync folder for importing.
So essentially I’m using LFTP to sync folders locally instead of mounting the seedbox directly. Since I’d be sync’ing, the availability of the torrent after completion in the local sync folder wouldn’t be immediate (need to wait for LFTP/rclone to finish).
Will the Sonarr Remote File Paths feature work for me in this case? Will the delay in availability be a problem with the completed file handling feature with remote file paths?
IOW: Do I have any issue with partially completed files? Meaning, if it’s a 10GB file, it may take say 10 mins for rclone to sync it locally. During that time, if Sonarr looks in the remotely configured path, it will see a partial file.
