When I sync from my Macbook to my Linux server, speed is up and down. It peaks at about 20 MiB/s, it spends some time at 300 KiB/s, but most of the time is 0.
It is syncing a 30 GB file of a VM, with no other Syncthing traffic and nothing else of consequence.
The machines are connected via LAN. Wireshark shows no retries and I can ping and ssh between the machines during the 0 KiB/s sync. Syncthing on both machines shows it is connected and the folder is ‘syncing’ but no traffic is moving.
I have disabled global discovery and relaying, so it isn’t trying to go off-LAN.
I checked the log on the Linux machine, and this looks likely: “pull: no connected device has the required version of this file”
I’m not clear what to do about this. On the Macbook, I use VMware and VMware updates the VM disk image. I exited VMware and the need to sync was detected, but it doesn’t seem to be able to move the file.
What do I need to do to:
- Clear the immediate problem
- Enable sync of my VM disk image on an ongoing basis
