Rclone stuck at 100% for some files and not taking advantage of 8 gigabit uplink

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Rclone seems to be getting stuck on files at 100% then speed drops to below 1mib/s eventually copying them to the storage also max speed after like minute is only a gigabit unlike when it first starts it takes advantage of my 8 gigabit connection. Its hard to explain.

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.59.2

  • os/version: ubuntu 22.04 (64 bit)

  • os/kernel: 5.15.0-48-generic (x86_64)

  • os/type: linux

  • os/arch: amd64

  • go/version: go1.18.6

  • go/linking: static

  • go/tags: none

beta also does same thing

Are you on the latest version of rclone? You can validate by checking the version listed here: Rclone downloads

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

FLAGS="--fast-list \
--use-mmap \
--no-traverse \
--tpslimit=10 \
--transfers=10 \
--progress \
--config=/home/tv/.config/rclone/rclone.conf \
--log-file=/root/sync/uploader.log \
--check-first \
--size-only \

/usr/bin/rclone sync Movies: /mnt/storage2/ \

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
scope = drive
token = redacted
team_drive = **redacted**
root_folder_id =
service_account_file = /opt/sa2/424.json

This is google drive to local


Log file would show what it is doing.

Most likely a checksum at the end is the delay.

Oh crap sorry swear I posted

hey sorry its on pastebin now

it does that for like 10m or more maybe 2 more transfers start or so but it clogs up the queue, and I also should be getting 300mib/s or something no?

It depends on what you are copying to as more isn't always better.

What's the target ? SSD? Spinning disk? I'd imagine you are IO bound with so many transfers and it's waiting to finish the checksum.

The host is SSD , target is hdd its copying to disks 1 gigabit , disk speed is 300mb/s

Did you check the IO while it's happening? Are you IO bound?

I even attempted it with 2 transfers same thing and even lower speed, I don't get why it cannot download faster

Many posts about slow Google Drive...

As of 9/19ish, Rclone upload to Gdrive incredibly slow, download is fine - Help and Support - rclone forum

Mines download tho not upload

So you didn't try the fix listed in there? Bummer.

I have someone else suggusted it I haven't put bind yet but I can.

I get this error now

And this whole thread.

Rclone mount random slow speeds - Help and Support - rclone forum

I sadly can't read that so not sure.

What command are you running?

Can you paste the actual text output?

Im running my bash script and it gives an error saying cannot bind address

Sounds like you have something typed wrong, but I can't see what you are typing...


Bottom one is what's typed and top is the error when I try to start it like usual
