Rclone remote set Transfers doesn't do anything?

rclone v1.51.0-009-gbb9bb3ae-test-beta

using a slightly older version of rclone (and in the middle, so can't test with a newer version yet), but when i did a

rclone rc options/set --json '{"main": {"Transfers": 90}}'

it changed the values (as can be seen from options/get), but it didn't have any practical effect. I'd argue that if this is the expected result, than the setting should be considered read only and return an error if one tries to modify it.

How did you see it wasn't working?

If the sync has already started it won't change the number of Transfers it is using - there is quite a lot of setup for each transfer (threads started etc) so it isn't trivial to change the number.

It should take effect for the next transfer though.

hmm, so then it only impacts running as a server, not one offs? which would explain I guess.

Yes. It would be possible to implement, but not straight forward!
