2018-04-09 14:45:58: Request from DEVICE for file <FILE> in unshared folder "<FOLDER-ID>"
I get this warning when pausing a folder.
I think it would be better to:
- Not create a warning here
- Tell the other device that the folder is paused, so it won’t request again (at least for a while - maybe add a retry after an hour in case the other device missed the unpause signal - or simply sync the pause-state of all folders on connect).
I have 2.4 million shared files … if syncthing requests each of them (in the worst-case) again and again (or even just once), while the folder is paused, it’s a lot of wasted work.
Maybe related (but did not find it usefull): Request from ... for file ... in unshared folder "..."
I am also planning on pausing and resuming all folders using a script and some idle-system-triggers for my mom’s PC, so when she uses it, syncting will pause, and when the PC is idle it will resume.
I’m not sure yet if it is clever to pause & resume the folders or devices.
I am trying to avoid rescans all the time. It’s a lot of files she has and a slow computer on top. So pausing the devices would not trigger rescans, but it would also not pause currently running scans (which slow down the system), but these are just temporary, so mabye acceptable.
