Is there a way to have responsive file system access over a network? My internet connection is 50Mb downloads/5Mb uploads, my server connection is 1Gb symmetrical. Ping to server is 50ms on average.
I have been using
sshfs for a long time (using ExpanDrive as a client on Windows) and to be honest I am quite tired of it. After about 5 minutes of no activity if I want to access the remote dir everything stops for a bit, sometimes i have to wait for about two minutes.
Also, browsing directories or opening a file is really slow.
I don't think it is a connection issue or slow computing (both computers have an i7 and >16GB RAM).
So my question is:
- Am I missing something? Is there any better way to access remote drives without lags like that?
- Is my
sshfsnot configured correctly?
Quite often when I don't have access to my PC and I need to change something in the projects, I can just install ExpanDrive or Dokan or when I am on Linux just mount
sshfs and I am set - don't need to install the whole dev environment, but these terrible lags put me off and I can't find a solution to that.
