ReadyNas 516

Post by aaseef021 » 09 Jul 2018, 02:41

Is there is a way to setup a scheduled task to run the filbert script for ReadyNas 516.

I usually go through SSH to run this manually, it would be nice if I can setup something to run every 15 mins to check for new files

Currently this is what I run

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:amc --output "/data/Videos" --action copy --conflict override -non-strict --log-file amc.log --def clean=y artwork=y excludeList=amc.txt "/data/Torrents"
Any help would greatly appreciate

Yes, you can use standard Linux tools such as cron, which can be used to run programs (not just FileBot) on a schedule:

:idea: ReadyNAS might have a more user-friendly system though, such as the Synology Scheduler on Synology NAS. Best to ask in the ReadyNAS forums.

:idea: I'd recommend setting it up to run once a day at 4am though, and not every 15 min.

Thanks for the reply, I did create a .sh with the filebot command. How do I configure Cron to run this?

Currently this .sh file is located in \data\documents

Have you tried Googling for a solution yet? cron is a standard Linux tool, so you'll find lots and lots of help and tutorials.

On Ubuntu, it'll work like this:

On ReadyNAS, IDK. Probably very much the same.
