Vero 4K - NAS / Disk Spin up

I have a file server, which is exporting a large media collection. This is mounted on the Vero using NFS via FSTAB, mounted into a dir within /mnt.

All works very well, until the server disks spin down. With the disks spun down the menu system can take a while to react.

This time to react can be quite a long time, far longer than I would expect based on other systems using the same fileshare - usually within 10 seconds everything is fine. On OSMC / Vero it can be minutes of just feeling frozen. Then, once the disks are up its fine as you would expect.

Is there any advanced options / timeouts that can be tuned to make it feel more like a slight pause while disks spin up?

Could try autofs

Changed my FSTAB slightly, and moved away from NFS.



contains (replace X with valid credentials)


and then set so only root can read/write

chmod 600 /home/osmc/.smbcredentials

Updated my FSTAB with the following (replacing NAS_NAME, DIRECTORY_NAME, MOUND_DIRECTORY as needed).

//NAS_NAME/DIRECTORY_NAME /mnt/MOUNT_DIRECTORY cifs x-systemd.automount,noauto,rw,iocharset=utf8,credentials=/home/osmc/.smbcredentials,uid=osmc,gid=osmc,file_mode=0770,dir_mode=0770,vers=3.0 0 0

Now seems to be working far more reliably.

Glad to hear this.
