Limit write / read on hard drive for sync please?

I try to limit the speed of writing and reading to rclone sync on my NAS please because it slows down too much the other uses on discs.

Rclone Sync NAS Synology> Google Drive (with rclone crypt)
Files is media
Weight: 15 TB

What can I put in my order?
Thank you

hello and welcome to the forum,

have you tried?

   --bwlimit BwTimetable                  Bandwidth limit in kBytes/s, or use suffix b|k|M|G or a full timetable.

Hello asdffdsa,

I would rather limit the CPU to rclone sync.

My command is :

rclone sync /volume1/video/concerts /volume1/administration/rclone_mount/7touorms92b2bah205tfbfcpno/Autres/Concerts --delete-after --progress --max-transfer 700G --fast-list --low-level-retries 20 --log-level INFO --log-file /volume1/administration/rclone_sync/logs/upload_concerts.log

If your goal is to limit CPU, you'd need to use something like 'nice' and change the priority on it. There are a number of guides out there on that as that's generally how you limit CPU on Linux/Unix.

If that seems complex, you can reduce transfers / checkers as that slows things down as well.

Ok thx :slight_smile:
