After having struggled for a while, I’ve decided to talk about the bunch of things that keep my Syncthing setup from running smoothly.
(A) My hardware : 1 laptop running Windows 8.1, 1 NAS (Synology DS213j), 1 Android tablet and 1 Android phone. All of them running the latest version (let’s say 0.10.27, as I’ve just seen, before posting, that 0.10.28 is out).
(B) My Syncthing setup : kind of mirroring. A total of 10-12 repos, from tiny ones (current Office work files, <20MB) to huge ones (e.g. Music, ~ 75GB). There is NO master folder across all my setup.
Issue #1 : every item modified or deleted on PC or phone is added back by Synology. The NAS keeps acting all the time as if it was a master folder. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled it to no avail, don’t know if I should pay attention to another particular setting. Is there any known kind of “conflict” between the official versions and the NAS one? Or should I rather report this issue to the NAS package dev ?
Issue #2 : sometimes ST continues to look for a specific deleted file over and over, on both sides of the same repo, and this leads to generating the “Folder isn’t making progress” thing. This is what I dedicated (almost) my whole weekend to, expecting to have a smooth run to start the week with. But no. Don’t worry, I’ve read all the forums and Github pages about that, but nothing positive so far.
Issue #3 : my LAN sync speed has drastically dropped to max. 80Kb/s these last days, whereas I’ve got up to 2Mb/s in the good old times. Don’t know what’s wrong. No web UI opened, and it’s same result for all the wrapper I’ve tested. And I’ve looked here too: Syncthing Very slow to LAN Sync Repo.
Please note that I’ve changed wrappers to see how it can help ST run smoothly (mainly to CPU and memory hogging, see here: SyncTrayzor: Windows host for Syncthing. Installer, auto-start, built-in browser, tray icon, folder watcher, and more). I’ve tried SyncTray and SyncTrayzor (both portable) and have now installed Syncthing-gtk. I have no preference, I’d just keep the one having the least impact on my system resources.
Sorry to have thrown it all in one topic, any idea/help is welcome.
