After reading the documentation several times, I don't understand how this flag actually works.
The documentation details that:
Max burst of transactions for --tpslimit (default 1).
Normally --tpslimit will do exactly the number of transactions per second specified. However if you supply --tps-burst then rclone can save up some transactions from when it was idle giving a burst of up to the parameter supplied.
For example if you provide --tpslimit-burst 10 then if rclone has been idle for more than 10*--tpslimit then it can do 10 transactions very quickly before they are limited again.
This may be used to increase performance of --tpslimit without changing the long term average number of transactions per second.
Ok, my flags for mounting the remote on Debian and working with Google Drive and Plex are:
I understand that:
The maximum number of requests is 10 per second (--tpslimit 10). If Rclone was idle, then rclone can send 20 burst requests. It is right?
If this statement is correct then:
The value of --tpslimit-burst should always be greater than the value of --tpslimit, right?
What does it mean?:
However if you supply --tps-burst then rclone can save up some transactions from when it was idle giving a burst of up to the parameter supplied.
How does the value given in --tpslimit-burst work?
Is it the limit of burst requests being sent fast (in my case 20) or is it the number of times the --tpslimit is sent (in my case = 20 bursts X tpslimit 10 = 200 requests being sent fast)? ??
Please describe in detail how this works. I don't quite understand how the --tpslimit-burst flag works.
I don't speak English, I'm using Google's translator to translate from Spanish.
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
os/version: debian 11.5 (64 bit)
os/kernel: 5.10.0-19-amd64 (x86_64)
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
Google Drive with my personal ID and Secret
The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
I have to figure out how to test dropbox as more than 12 TPS 'seems' to cause an issue so I think by having 12/12 like my setup is now, I'm actually bursting to 24 potentially at some point as I sometimes get an issue and I never knew why.
I know why now.
I'm always amazed no matter how much I think I know, I learn something new. Love the forums.
