There are some webservers that only allow 4 concurrent HTTP requests/transfers
However, specifying --transfers=4 doesn't do the trick since it fails with failed to readDir: HTTP Error 429: 429 Too Many Requests
What's the way to specify the maximum number of concurrent requests to the webserver to avoid 429?
You'll need to set --transfers and --checkers - together they make the total number of connections needed.
with --checkers=4 and --transfers=4 I still get Failed to copy: failed to open source object: Open failed: HTTP Error 429: 429 Too Many Requests
The total number of connection is --transfers plus --checkers. So try setting them both to 2.
both to 2 still fails with a 429.
You could try setting them both to 1. You might want to try setting
--tpslimit also to slow things down.
I note that the http backend doesn't support low level retries which it really should - that would mean that it retried on the 429 error.
