Syncthing uses at least 10% CPU regardless of things to sync, or if it’s all up to date. Usually it’s around 20-30% if there is stuff to sync.
It goes incredibly slow (kbps instead of mbps) on local LAN. Is this normal? Is there a way to kick it up a notch and use the gigabit bandwidth available throughout my home?
I can’t seem to get a connection over the WAN to sync with all three of my LAN PCs. It will connect with my QNAP, but it does not connect with either of my other windows boxes. WAN PC is also windows.
I love the layout and information available via syncthing’s layout, especially using syncTrayzor. But the speed is a serious issue and the CPU load bother’s me a bit… however, if I can’t get all the devices to connect (they stay “disconnected”) then it seems a bit pointless. Thoughts?
Using this and SyncTrayzor together will go badly, and there’s no need to anyway since SyncTrayzor does its own filesystem watching.
That shouldn’t be the case: my Syncthing CPU usage is so low it’s lost in the noise. Is it scanning? Set ‘STTRACE=model,scanner’ in the ‘Syncthing Environmental Variables’ section, in ‘Settings -> Syncthing -> Advanced’. Syncthing tell you about what it’s doing
No. See if the side you’re syncing to is maxing out its CPU.
Can both PCs find the discovery server? Is the WAN PC behind a NAT device? If so, has at least one side managed to get a UPnP mapping?
At first I had two windows PCs with strong processors (Dual Xeon in one, and new i7 in the other) on the same gigabit network and the speed was still abysmal. CPU was around 20-30% at the time… I’ve never checked after a sync, but it’s been days and the sync is still processing between the four devices (3 windows PCs with good processors and the latest, a QNAP with an x86 processor. I know that’s the weakest link, but the speed between computers was ridiculously slow before I added the qnap. I thought things might speed up after I started adding more devices… nope. Silly thought, but hopeful.
If it’s a CPU limitation for speed, shouldn’t it still go fast between strong CPU PCs? Because that too is still in the kbps… pretty strange.
