Fix >>failed to setup inotify handler. Please increase inotify limits<< on truenas scale for syncthing

I am using Syncthing on my truenas scale and got the following error after adding more and more directories.

failed to setup inotify handler. Please increase inotify limits, see https://docs.syncthing.net/users/faq.html#inotify-limits

The fix is simple, just login to your truenas scale and click to System Settings -> Advanced -> Sysctl -> Add.

Add Variable fs.inotify.max_user_watches with value 204800 and that's it. Happy syncthing!
