Incorrect upload speed shown in rclone copy

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

The total transfer speed counter in the rclone copy command shows an inflated value.

It should show 9.344, not 11.002.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.49.3
- os/arch: linux/arm
- go version: go1.12.9

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

Raspbian Buster (Debian 10), 32-bit

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

Google Drive

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

rclone copy --progress --transfers=5 /disks/4TB/Movies/YTS/2003 media:"Movies (Archive)/YTS/2003"

The arrow up number is the overall transfer from when you started.

You already transferred 24 files so it averages that out and has the top number.

The bottom 2 numbers are the speeds of the current 2 transfers going on and will eventually bring the top number down if they are slower.

Animosity is correct. This has caused confusion many times before, but it should be correct for what it does (a simple average of the whole process since it started).

I think most people maybe maybe expect more of a "current total". It can be especially confusing when viewing the stats output of a mount, since that runs continuously but is idle most of the time, thus the simple average is kind of useless.

There might be room for improvement here.
