I’ve rented cloud space to create a remote borg backup. My provider allows me to access the drive using WebDAV, which seems to be working great with the standard Gnome file manager (Nautilus, if I remember correctly).
I can initialise a repo and start a backup. However, the file system process for the WebDAV mount fills my entire RAM. Is this normal? I assume the virtual FS does a lot of buffering, perhaps somebody knows how to configure this?
This should be handled by GVFS which is a part of GNOME.
So, I believe you are more likely to get an answer here:
Thanks for the hint. I ahve asked the question. For future reference: It can be found here.
An alternative for backup to WebDav storage (and many other cloud storage systems), is rclone. Very reliable, and it uses about 40M RAM when uploading at 4Mbytes/s.
