mergerfs.balance can be run from the commandline to balance drives. It does not run in the background. It could be run on cron, but a better choice would be to use a mergerfs create policy that keeps the drives balanced once you have them initially in balance.
Can you pls explain which policy i should take ?
So do i understand this right:
first i have to choose a policy which will take always the most free space hard-drive
i move all my date to my snapraid => the drive will not be balanced cause i will move a lot of data at once
then i have to run the balance-plugin => to get the drives in balance
since then i will only move smaller amounts of data, so the policy will trigger and keep my drives in balance - is this correct ?
