What is the problem you are having with rclone?
I'm using rclone to sync a local path to a remote directory on a mega account.
I noticed that rclone bandwith usage is not 'smooth'. It is bursting my dsl connection for 6-8 seconds; then there are some seconds without bandwidth usage 0kbps, probably in order to respect the requested bandwith.
my max dsl connection : 115k so I asked 70k in order to let some bandwidth to the others users.
I noticed the issue during a big file transfer (file size > 10MB) to mega, so at a moment I could expect a stable bandwith.
I also tried koofr storage which has a similar issue. S3 at scaleway looks good. and webdav looks good too.
What is your rclone version (output from
- os/arch: linux/amd64
- go version: go1.15.5
Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)
linux debian stable/buster 64b
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
The command you were trying to run (eg
rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
rclone sync /mnt/local_path/ :mega:remote_dir/ -v --bwlimit 70k --max-delete 2 --transfers 1 --checkers 3 --stats 20m --size-only --delete-after --delete-excluded
The rclone config contents with secrets removed.
I'm running without config and I use the command line parameters
--mega-user 'xxx' --mega-pass xxxxxx
