Many requests in Google storage


I configured rclone for backup in a server with millons of files, with Google Storage. It works good, because the native rsync command of google cloud was too slow, and rclone did the job.

The problem now is the number of requests. Every daily backup (copy function of rclone) does like 300.000 requests, so the pricing is too high, and we just added 1 server.

Is there any way to decrease the number of requests?

You could try --fast-list at the expense of using more memory.
