Bwlimit flag not respected during server side copy

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Bandwidth limit flag not being adhered during server side copy between team drives. I am transferring large amount of data, hence the bandwidth of 750GB per day is hit if it copies at ~ 4GBps

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.53.1

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.15

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS, 64 bit

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone --drive-server-side-across-configs --bwlimit 8M -vvP --ignore-existing copy drive1:/folder drive2:/folder 

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
client_id = ***
client_secret = ****
scope = drive
token = ****
team_drive = ****

type = drive
client_id = ***
client_secret = ***
scope = drive
token = ***
team_drive = ****

A log from the command with the -vv flag

2020/10/05 08:35:46 DEBUG : Using config file from ".config/rclone/rclone.conf"
2020/10/05 08:35:46 INFO  : Starting bandwidth limiter at 8MBytes/s

Quoting my replying from the same question posted a few days ago:

So server side can't be throttled. Thank you!!
