I'm going to use it on a VPS where the source is my NAS at home (SFTP) and the destination is my gsuite drive. (I know that I can directly run the script from my NAS and upload directly to gsuite but I want to give this method a try)
Could someone explain me how much disk size I actually need on the vps to do an rclone sync in this scenario? Imagine syncing a 20GB file from my local NAS to the gsuite drive, will rclone first 'download' it to the VPS and then 'upload' it to gsuite. Or will rclone 'stream' the file directly to gsuite?
script i'm using
#!/bin/bash #variables LOG="/home/user/rclone/$(date +%F)-rclone.log" #$(date +%F_%T) to include date + time #$(date +%F) to include date LOGLEVEL=INFO SOURCE="/home/user/downloads/TEST/dir1/" DEST="gsuite-C:current" RCLONECONFIG="/home/user/.config/rclone/rclone.conf" BACKUPDIR="gsuite-C:old" if pidof -o %PPID -x $(basename $0); then echo $(date "+%Y/%m/%d %H:%M:%S")" WARN : Cron attempted to start the rclone backup but an existing cron job is still running." >> $LOG exit 1 fi echo $(date "+%Y/%m/%d %H:%M:%S")" INFO : Cron started the rclone backup." >> $LOG echo $(date "+%Y/%m/%d %H:%M:%S")" INFO : Starting sync" >> $LOG /usr/bin/rclone sync $SOURCE $DEST \ --log-level=$LOGLEVEL \ --tpslimit=10 \ --fast-list \ --config=$RCLONECONFIG \ --checkers=6 \ --transfers=6 \ --max-transfer=200G \ --log-file=$LOG \ --bwlimit=2M \ --retries=1 \ --stats-one-line \ --drive-chunk-size=64M \ --backup-dir=$BACKUPDIR --suffix "_$(date +%FT%T%z).bak" \ --drive-use-trash=true #--progress --stats-file-name-length=0 --stats=1s \ #uncomment and move upwards to view current progress #--checksum \ #checksum is not used in crypted remote #--drive-server-side-across-configs=true \ #add if syncing server side echo $(date "+%Y/%m/%d %H:%M:%S")" INFO : sync complete" >> $LOG echo $(date "+%Y/%m/%d %H:%M:%S")" INFO : Cron finished rclone backup." >> $LOG exit
Please criticize this script as I want to learn as much as I can on shell scripting and using rclone.
