  1. How many files are you trying to sync?


    I heard on a podcast,that someone tried to sync there giant family photo library that contained tens of thousands of files. That it just killed their home server because it had to rescan every single files over and over again. But this was when BTsync first came out. So I bet there has been improvement.  



    :D  :D  :D

    Even Boeing 747 can't kill a good server :)


    In all modern operating systems all frequent read\write operations on HDD are cached in computer RAM. And each HDD has internal cache too! So don't worry about "rescan operations". Windows Explorer doing this always for a lot of system files right after powering on the pc. ​

  2. Did someone get the proxy support working? I established a SOCKS5 proxy with SSH and "DynamicForward", I see attempts to connect to port 3000, but connection fails. It also says "only socks5 connect supported" from SSH, but in btsync I activated socks5!

    Have you checked your ssh socks5 with other applications?

    Try to test with curl. Here is an example:

    curl --socks5


    Good luck :)


    On another system (15 folders, 20,000 files) btsync uses about 2% CPU, which I consider a normal value.



    As i understand - first system is NAS, and second system is NAS too?


    CPU usage depends from: CPU architecture, number of cores, number of supported instructions (SSE, AES) etc.
  4. All done except step 11. When I try I get this message:

    "service btsync does not support chkconfig"


    This happens because chkconfig reads the startup script named btsync and can't find the line which 

    starts with "# chkconfig:".




    #! /bin/sh

    # /etc/init.d/btsync

    # chkconfig: 2345 80 05


    Numbers after "# chkconfig" provides information about set of levels on which daemon should run and start\kill priorities that should be used.


    Hope this will help :)
