Ya that’s new to me. We havent changed anything in Plex. Have you run a test vm to see if you get the same issue?

I'm having the same issue--when PLEX begins a library scan, streams go down and I can't access any other containers except via SSH (which is quite slow to respond as well).

PG is running on a 4-core VPS with 8GB RAM.

PS I love PG! :)

Try a custom tag to see if it's a version issue.

@daveftw84 u might have to the linxserver server io team or plex. I don't have this issue, but it's plex related. I did some light research, but nothing comes from our part.

Sorry to necro this old thread.. but I think I found the issue.

Plex would sometimes die on me in my deployment, and logs would show this:
[s6-finish] sending all processes the TERM signal.
Critical: libusb_init failed
[s6-finish] sending all processes the KILL signal and exiting.


So the important thing here is the "Critical: libusb_init failed", which sends a KILL signal to Plex.

OP did not mention which Plex version he's using, but I suspect everyone here is using the "latest" tag for Plex, and not using "plexpass" version, and won't see the issue at all. I am using plexpass version, and the tuner service is enabled by default, which uses libusb.

I disabled the tuner and killed the service by just renaming the folder:
Bash:
docker exec plex mv -f "/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Tuner Service" "/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Tuner Service DISABLED"
kill $(docker top plex | grep 'Plex Tuner Service' | awk '{print $2}')
This might be some script code you add if the user selects plexpass (or an additional option for it). Is anyone using a docker deployment of plex and using a tuner? I believe the port that it starts is 32600 and it's not even mapped on the plex container.

So libusb_init failed happened to me today. Never see this before and do run the plexpass tag.

Bash:
docker exec plex mv -f "/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Tuner Service" "/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Tuner Service DISABLED"
kill $(docker top plex | grep 'Plex Tuner Service' | awk '{print $2}')
I can run the first line ok but the second line with sudo throws

Got permission denied while trying to connect to the Docker daemon socket at uni x:///var/run/docker.sock: Get http://%2Fvar%2Frun%2Fdocker.sock/v1.39/containers/plex/top: dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: connect: permission denied

I dont have a tuner so this "feature" (bug) is not required
What is the difference between /latest and /plexpass tags? If i reinstall will i loose any other function or features?

use sudo and the commands should work

This happened to me on my Hetzner dedicated server.

I re-installed, disabled software raid completely and mounted my second hard drive under /mnt as documented how in the wiki. I have not had any problems since.
