I am having some issues when using the --bwlimit flag which have just started. I’ve been using the feature for months without issue but for the last week or so I’ve been having problems. What’s happening is that a couple of transfers will hog all of the available bandwidth and leave remaining transfers around 100 KB/s. The problem is that when the transfers that were hogging the bandwidth are finished the slower ones will not pick up speed and use the available bandwidth. So eventually, all of my transfers will get stuck around 100 KB/s. I’ve included a couple of screenshots to try to make this more clear. I’m not sure if this is a problem with rclone or with my setup. Has anyone experienced this before or have an idea of how to fix this?
There are 10 files being uploaded and --bwlimit is set to 40M. You can see with 4 transfers 2 are hogging all of the available bandwidth.
Here, all of the files have been uploaded except for the first two which have been hanging around 100 KB/s for the entirety of the transfer. These will never pick up speed. I’ve tried running transfers overnight and have seen them stall like this for hours at a time.
