I am diving into a syncthing configuration here and have been looking at various githug/forum and FAQ posts. Hoping someone has experienced the same configuration and can advise what I may be missing.
- Two devices Synology as the source (send only) and Linux as the destination (read only)
- People work on the source files, these are replicated fine to the destination
The destination device to share the folders out and needs permissions reconfigured on the share and folders ready for a cutover. Adjusting the permissions on the destination works as appropriate, although i’ll need to overwrite permissions on any sub folders and files as these are changed as files are updated/modified at the destination.
- What is syncthing doing in the background regarding this, Is it attempting to pull each file each fresh across the network and increasing load or is it just noted as different?
- The locally changed items indicates that the folders and files touched are all different, i kind of expected this, does this have implication to the sync as it still is copying/updating files as needed?
- Would setting the ignore permissions flag on the receiving configuration suppress this notification and would it reduce load of processing for replication if its increased because of this?
Due to the large share, I’m cautious of the additional processing required further slowing down replication, it already takes a long time to scan then copy changes across. With permission changes across the whole synced share I am expecting would significantly slow this down.
Thoughts would be appreciated!
