Cpu usage rclone sync


i use my raspberry pi3, and also my pc i7 32gb ram, but anyway i in my pc when i sync my drives,are 4, i see cpu that come up to 80 90% and is an i7.

In my rpi, same story.
I prefer to use it in my raspberry, because sync with crontab, so i leave it, and do that automatically.
But use a lot of ram, and a lot of cpu.
I have tried, like in screenshot, tpslimit 3, for 4 sync drives, but no way, so cpu in raspberry is on 100%.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ rclone --version
rclone v1.49.3

  • os/arch: linux/arm
  • go version: go1.12.9

Maybe is a little bit old, but how can i update it in raspberry ?

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

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cat /etc/os-release
PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)"
NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux"
VERSION="9 (stretch)"

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

Google Team Drive

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

rclone sync DRIVE:/ BACKUP_1:/ -P --fast-list --track-renames -vv --tpslimit 3

Thanks in advance for the support ( very great always, in this forum, thanks a lot to animosity022, ncw,
thestiga etc...)

yeah @thestigma is great!, but we have not seen him for a while, perhaps he will appear...

you can download rclone for your pi from this page.
curl https://rclone.org/install.sh | sudo bash

about your i7, what is the operating system?
you did not mention the version of rclone.
make sure you are using the latest stable, v.1.51.0

if both the source and dest are google, have you tried?

Thanks to reply

in rclone.conf there is server_side_across_configs = true
so doesn't use my bandwidth, is in source and dest, of course

About rclone version in my windows 10 is rclone-v1.51.0-windows-amd64

I have tried right now with last build in my rpi, but sasme story about cpu. with tpslimit 3.
I'm wrong in some config ?

Turn down checkers as it defaults to 8. Turn down transfers at it defaults to 4.

It's a pretty low powered device so chances are, you can't really do too much.

Just a mix of health issues and family matters. If there is anything truly urgent then reach me on my gmail. otherwise I will go through stuff as soon as I can go back to a more normal schedule.
