I've been on rclone 1.57.0 because of 2 bugs with --progress. But i'm required to upgrade for filename_encoding base32768 since i'm moving from gdrive to dropbox.
Renamed or moved files are counted as transferred bytes. You can see this issue in the attached screenshot. I've limited rclone to 3Mbytes upload so this speed and amount of transferred data is technically impossible. (Tested on 1.63.0)
I agree with you - why anybody would like to have some phantom transfers included in very clear indicator - bytes transferred and speed? I want to see what is happening on my NIC. Not some imaginary numbers. Any metrics provided should have some practical meaning - what meaning it has when server side operations are included?
At the same time please do not change anything in format of transfers metrics - many people scripts parse them using regexp and any change break a lot of carefully written programs.
I can understand that it would need stats. But its still not transferred.
Transferred is upload or download.
My stats are quite skewed at the moment because of this. At maximum i am able to upload ~250GB a day (average speed 3mbytes/s). But because of these serverside moves being counted, i've got stats like this (this one had one retry because of an error) (it also contains an example of the transfer speed being stuck because of the error)
Transferred: 0 B / 0 B, -, 0 B/s, ETA -
Checks: 154097 / 154097, 100%
Elapsed time: 3m44.1s
I do quite a bit of serverside moves. But this makes the stats practically useless.
Are you able to tell how much data was actually uploaded? I can make estimates but the stats won't tell me.
maybe add an extra line with "Moved bytes" or something like that. I find the Renamed entry enough for my use though.
I've read it yes.
Can you measure the speed per second in that situation? Correct me if I'm wrong but i don't think it's the case.
I believe the real issue is that the single line stats do not mention how many renames are performed.
