1. Intro

PGPatrol is a combination of a seamless user experience developed by PlexGuide along with the modified use of Plex_Patrol to provide an effortless installation! PG Patrol does three basic things.

  • Provides a series of checkers to ensure that the user is able to install the program (i.e. running plex, token generation & etc)
  • Provides a user intuitive interface that enables the user to install PGPatrol from setup to deployment in under two minutes.
  • Provides the user to utilize Plex_Patrol, but with modified variables to enable hasty installation of the process (basically you do not need to be a Linux Guru to get this up and going).

2. How To Utilize

PGPatrol has three basic settings that you can change:

a. Instantly Kick Video Transcodes

By default, this option is set to False. Most people who utilize a Plex Server will have videos that are transcoding. In rare situations, the server may have limited processing power and certain plex clients may force transcoding regardless. In this situation, you can set the option to True to boot users who are transcoding. If setting this option to True, you may want to warn your users about what it means.

b. UserName | Multiple IPs

This option is pretty straight forward. Plex has the ability to limit slots per user, but may be problematic due to wanting to offer... let's say 5 slots, but do not want the 5 slots to come from more than 2 IP addresses (home and cell phone). By offering 5 slots, technically a user can offer their username to 4 other people and they could all be utilizing your server. By placing a CAP on the IPs, this would prevent such a situation from occurring. By offering 2 IPs, a user will be able to utilize all 5 slots at home for example. 2 is default for most case scenarios.

c. Minutes Kicked Transcode

This is the most helpful feature. A user may be utilizing your Plex Server, but then they decided to pause their video. Doing so results in the server keeping track of the video and utilizing processing power for continuous transcoding. If you set the minutes to 15, a user who has paused their video for more than 15 minutes will result in booting the user from the server and provides the user a proper notification.

3. Summary

Utilizing PGPatrol is simple. Just setup, run, and go. Once utilized, PG will automated the startup service so you do not need to do anything else.

4. FAQ Guide
