XO(A) + rclone

  • Hi' there,

    rclone is a tool to synchronize (or mount) your datas to common drive hosters (like S3, Gdrive, and many others) : https://rclone.org/
    Is support mounting and crypting data.
    I'm currently testing it.

    I mount a gdrive on /backups/ and tried to backup some vms. It fails because i had to use some cache on local XO and if the VM is too big it fails. So it fails a lot.
    I've to read and learn more from rclone but it seems be a nice solution in addition with XO (you've to mount a local remote)

    Problem is here : https://forum.rclone.org/t/xen-orchestra-ebadf-bad-file-descriptor-write/13104

    And from rclone doc :

    Without the use of “--vfs-cache-mode” this can only write files sequentially, it can only seek when reading. This means that many applications won’t work with their files on an rclone mount without “--vfs-cache-mode writes” or “--vfs-cache-mode full”. See the File Caching section for more info

    Well, okay, it looks a little wobbly, but anyway.

    Who else using this ? Who want to test it ?

  • Did you get this working? I am interested in your setup!
