Hetzner Issues continue - very slow upload to google drive

Continuing the discussion from 429 google drive errors back for anyone using Hetzner, even with cloudflare or google dns used?:

I started having issues with rclone and Google Drive on my Hetzner box. Any uploads I did would only go @ 700kbps and thats it. The thread here helped me a little by adding the APIs to my hosts brought me up to 4-14Mbps per file which an improvement but not perfect.... Anyone have more input on this? I really like Hetzner and would rather not have to find a new provider

rclone v1.62.2

  • os/version: debian 11.7 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 5.10.0-23-amd64 (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.20.2
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

I am not on the latest version. The storage provider is Google Drive. Also to note I am not getting the 403 or 429 errors.

rclone copy -v 1GB.bin gdrive:Videos/queue

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
client_id = redacted
client_secret = redacted
scope = drive
team_drive =
token = {"access_token":"redacted>


Have you tried adding the bind flag to bind to the ipv4 address of your hetzner box?

e.g. --bind xx.xx.xx.xx

I ran rclone copy -v --bind [redacted] 1GB.test gdrive:Videos/queue and that brought my speeds up to 16mbps so that did help.... we're progressing in the right direction

edit: I disabled IPv6 from the instructions on this link and that fixed it too.

rclone copy -v redacted.mkv gdrive:Videos/queue

Is that speed about normal? Much better then what I was getting but I want to be sure its within spec and expected. I have no BW limit on

From my experience that is what I might expect from a single transfer.

If you try multiple simultaneous transfers you might see similar speeds for each transfer
