Maybe my post is not clear, let’s break the
bwlimit option in detail:
The issue is that the speed went to unlimited at 23:59, which is correct, but after a few seconds, at midnight, returned to 25 kB/s, and I couldn’t explain why, since I tell rclone to go unlimited after 23:59 an limit to 25 kB/s from 9:00 onwards.
About the unit for the limit, from the docs:
To use a single limit, specify the desired bandwidth in kBytes/s, or use a suffix b|k|M|G.
I agree that they could be referring to the single limit only, and that the timetable might require units, but then in a later example they do this:
An example of a typical timetable to avoid link saturation during daytime working hours could be:
--bwlimit "08:00,512 12:00,10M 13:00,512 18:00,30M 23:00,off"
Which has been the basis of my timetable. As you see, they don’t specify units.
