What is the problem you are having with rclone?
Hello, I've currently subscribed to a BX31 plan with Hetzner Storage Box https://www.hetzner.com/storage/storage-box/bx31, as you maybe aware, storage boxes allow for rclone via sftp on port 23
The problem seems to be that when I perform a speed test using rsync, scp, and even 'sftp put' commands via ssh, the speeds are 50x faster than when i use rclone copy and when it is mounted (via sftp).
I've been searching today on the forum for others who use hetzner storage boxes, but couldn't find any copy or mount parameters that could possibly help me increase speed or see others with slow speeds as mine (upload seems to be limited to 1.5-2 MByte/s). I am looking for suggestions on how I can potentially improve speeds via rclone, or am I somehow dealing with encryption overhead via rclone sftp? that doesn't quite make sense to me since I can use 'sftp put' with fast upload speeds. rsync seems to work the fastest for me with hetzner storage box.
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
- os/arch: linux/amd64
- go version: go1.18.1
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
