Before I start I will say that I’ve looked through recent topics on here and I can’t see anyone else with a similar problem, so I’m not currently thinking that rclone is the culprit. However, I don’t know what next steps to take nor where else I can ask for help.
I have a GSuite business account which I use for unlimited cloud storage. I use rclone to upload and download the data from the cloud. My home broadband speed is 100MB up and download and I used to reliably be able to get 10MB/s when uploading to my cloud account. However, for the past few weeks I have been getting unreliable and slow speeds when uploading. Sometimes I might get 2MB/s, sometimes 250KB/s and occasionally it might go up to 7MB/s. Occasionally I’ll have a slow upload and if I end it and restart it then it will start uploading quicker, but this doesn’t work every time. For example here are some outputs of a file I recently uploaded:
A slow upload:
2019/02/19 17:59:15 INFO : Transferred: 52.570M / 1.039 GBytes, 5%, 294.901 kBytes/s, ETA 58m30s Errors: 0 Checks: 0 / 0, - Transferred: 0 / 1, 0% Elapsed time: 3m2.5s
Restarting the same upload a few minutes later and it increasing in speed:
2019/02/19 18:22:17 INFO : Transferred: 805.324M / 1.039 GBytes, 76%, 6.566 MBytes/s, ETA 39s Errors: 0 Checks: 0 / 0, - Transferred: 0 / 1, 0% Elapsed time: 2m2.6s
Today I have contacted both Google support and my ISP and both of them have said that there are no limits for speed or usage placed on their service and it isn’t them causing the slowdown. I have tried updating to the latest version of rclone, tried a different computer and reset my router using the reset button but none of this has helped. I’ve tried at different times of the day thinking that maybe the slowdown is at peak time, but there doesn’t seem to be any relation between the time of day and the speed.
Does anyone have any advice on what steps I could take next to try to find a solution to the issue? Thanks in advance.
