Rclone copy activity recap

Hi there,
I am using

rclone v1.52.3

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.14.7

to copy some files to gdrive.

It is working fine, and I put the command line in a script triggered by crontab.

I would like to know if, when rclone copy ends its job, I can get a recap of it work like how many files, the whole transfer size and time so that I can log them.

I found the --progress flag, but I think it's more interactive oriented.

Thanks in advance for your help.


if you use a log file, that info would be there.

can you dig deeper please?
I use a log file, my command line is something like

nohup rclone --config $rcloneconf --transfers 4 --checkers 16 --size-only --drive-chunk-size --no-traverse 8M copy from gdrive:/ --log-file=rclone.log </dev/null >/dev/null 2>&1

in rclone.log I can't see anything like what I described, but maybe I am missing something.

As a second consideration, having it in the log file is not very convenient, if the command produced a codified output like

number of successfully transferred|number of transfers with errors|number of files|size|time

I think it would be much easier :slight_smile:

It's the last lines of the log if you run with -v.

Transferred:      136.914G / 136.914 GBytes, 100%, 96.772 MBytes/s, ETA 0s
Checks:               118 / 118, 100%
Deleted:               59
Renamed:               59
Transferred:           59 / 59, 100%
Elapsed time:     24m57.9s

ok, any idea of how to extract this easily to log it in my script log?

So you want to write a separate script to parse the rclone.log you created and just keep the transfer stats?

I have a script log with "starting rclone copy" and "end rclone copy" with date and time, if I could manage to put some transfer data between those lines it would be perfect
