Failed to get fs id list on a proxmox vm


I have problems to synchronizse my data. I have 3 folders for one user:

  1. 240GB
  2. 260GB
  3. 70GB

From time to time I get this error

  • internal server error: Failed to get fs id list: request canceled
  • internal server error: Failed to get fs id list: failed to call dir callback: request canceled

like Failed to get fs id list or

I re-upload the files and it works again for a while and then it starts randomly again. I have seafile running on arch on a proxmox vm. The hardware is actually brand new and no unhealthy drives were found.

So, smartcontrol, zfs status, seafiles GC or fsck checks doesn’t show anything.

What else can I do to solve this problem without re-uploading the files again and again?


I found the solution in the logs of the client side which showed me the error 504 (Gateway Timeout). I have running nginx so I added:

    location / {
        proxy_connect_timeout  36000s;
        proxy_read_timeout  36000s;
        proxy_send_timeout  36000s;
        send_timeout  36000s;

Actually the same what you’ll find in the seafile manual for seafdav.
