Need help with Upload Limits bandwidth

Hello to everyone,
I have an annoying problem ...

From my PROXMOX server (linux based) ... I have this version of rclone:

root@pve:~# rclone version
rclone v1.52.2

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.14.4

I set up this crontab:

30 21 * * FRI rclone copy --transfers 16 --checkers 16 --bwlimit 7812 --contimeout 60s --timeout 300s --retries 3 --low-level-retries 10 --stats 1s \samanas01\backup\BCK\INCREMENTALI B2CLOUD:SAMACAPPALTI/INCREMENTALI/NAS01/INCREMENTALI

This does not limit the upload of the internet connection

Below is the connection in use:

How can I limit the upload bandwidth?

The bandwidth limit is in MB/s rather than Mb/s. You'd need to adjust that.

--bwlimit 7812 is now set...

How should I set it to not exceed 7 Mbps?

Check out the documentation:

So use 0.875M if you want to limit to 7Mb/s.

7 Mbit are 7 Mbps?


I need to set this? --> 0,875 or 0.875 (, or .)?

It is not written in the documentation

It's written right here:

Single limits last for the duration of the session. To use a single limit, specify the desired bandwidth in kBytes/s, or use a suffix b|k|M|G. The default is 0 which means to not limit bandwidth.

M 0,875 or M 0.875 ?

is not written if "," or "."

half-provided aid is not useful ...

Anyway, I thank you for your time!

Have a nice day

Just type it in and give it a try:

Ok thx.... need "."

The go runtime doesn't localise numerics so you'll always need to say 2.123 rather than 2,123
