I would like to have suggestions on best way to achieve the following with my setup.
- 1TB SATA Dedibox SC 2016 - Quickbox installation
- FreeNAS 8TB with Plex Media Server installed
So what I would like to do is to use rutorrent on my quickbox as a point to download my media contents and have them automatically download/sync to my FreeNAS directly to my Plex Media Library.
At present what i have done is using Syncthing to download the contents(rtorrent) to my FreeNAS "Sync" folder, which then i have an rsync command(Scheduled hourly) to copy the contents from the "Sync" folder to my Plex Media library locally.
the reason I did this instead of synching directly from rtorrent to my Plex Media Library is because I do not want to keep the data on my rtorrent after downloading since i only have 1TB of storage to play with. So if i delete content from rtorrent, it will just delete content from my "Sync" folder which is like a temp location on my FreeNAS.
The challenges I faced with this setup is additional storage taking up on my FreeNAS due to "Sync" folder and also rsync and syncthing may not work well together. At times I get incomplete data which i suspect rsync was copying contents that was not fully downloaded on rtorrent.
So i'm wondering if anyone of you have a similar setup(1 x dedicated server with quickbox and a local media server) and have the same intent, how do you have them setup?
