hi guys.
anyone else with this?
i remember seeing someone mention this in another thread...
is it me or is it a bug?
brand new fresh 18.04 install on netcup, 750gb 8gig ram 4 cores
how do i go about diagnosing this please?
which logs must i have a look at?
ive had a look and theres just pages and pages of data, unsure where to start..
since v8 (i updated at 8.0.13 i think) it just keeps stopping..handy.ha.
thanks

I had an issue where I was getting 403 errors on gdrive and the gdrivelcean.sh shell script was stacking up and not completing. there were hundreds of these processes running and this would eventually choke out Plex on my system. htop also shows that I had a load average over 35.

Anyway, this only happened once. I did a killall on gdriveclean.sh and then renamed the script for a while to prevent it from running.

Probably could start by looking at the plex container logs in portainer.
