Since some months back I've encountered my QNAP NAS totally unresponsive once a week, needing a reboot to be usable again. With help from QNAP's support, I've narrowed the problem down to the Sync app in combination with the antivirus scan provided by QNAP: - I have the antivirus scan scheduled to run once every week. One of the folders in the scan job is synced by the Bittorrent Sync app on the NAS. - After some hour of antivirus scanning, before the antivirus reports a finished scanning, the NAS becomes impossible to reach on the network. It happens every time, and the NAS has to be rebooted. No logs show any direct clues to what happened. - If I disable the Sync app, though, the antivirus scanning jobs always finish without a fault! - If I re-enable the Sync app, the NAS hangs again at every scan job. I don't know if QNAP or Sync (or both) is to blame for this error, but it makes Sync much less useful and reliable. Worth noting is that this error started appearing some 6 or 12 months ago, so it was introduced in some software update from Sync or QNAP, probably during early 2016 or so. I have regularly updated the NAS and Sync several times the last year. It should be mentioned though that I still run one of the last versions of Bittorrent Sync before the rebranding to Resilio, so I haven't tried out the last version and due to various bad experiences I am not currently planning on installing it. This is more of a bug report than a cry for help.
Hi, first of all I want to say that I'm really happy to have found BitTorrent Sync. Wonderful stuff! Now I'm trying to set it up in the best way, and my primary question is about re-indexing. As a little server I have a netbook running BTsync, and a NAS storing all my synced files. The NAS is working almost all the time, since BTsync says "indexing...". I assume this takes much longer time on a NAS than it would on a local drive. (I know that I can change the rescan interval, but it still takes a lot of time when the indexing is running.) I find the eternal chewing on the NAS both annoying and worrying. So, here come two alternatives: - If I would use a locally connected USB drive instead of the NAS, would the indexing be much less of an annoyance? Would BTsync even know about the file changes without having to rescan the files? (Dropbox seems to know it. And, as a comparison, the AeroFS guys say that they don't support NAS syncing since the system then doesn't get all the file-change information.) - If I would use a NAS running BTsync instead, like the WD MyBook Live, would it have to re-index my files as much? Or would it work more silently and well-behaving? Speaking of rescan intervals and file-change information in the system - are both always used by BTsync? To put it in another way: if I increase the rescan interval, will BTsync always still react to changes done between rescannings... or does it depend on where the files are stored? Explanations & recommendations very welcome!
