System runs out of memory while moving files to OneDrive


I am running a Debian based OSMC media center system on a raspberry 3b (debian 10.6). Now from what I can see from the osmc system logs the whole systems runs out of memory when uploading a bigger file to OneDrive. The file size is around 2GB. But this does not always happen (yes strange, I agree)

  • Is there a way to influence the memory usage? The PI3 does not really have a lot memory.
  • Or what else can cause the high memory consumption? The upload itself? Maybe check sums?
  • Are there any settings to change memory usage for OneDrive? Maybe using a temp file instead of the memory?

rclone version:
rclone v1.53.1

  • os/arch: linux/arm
  • go version: go1.15

I am using the move command (within a script) to move the file to OneDrive
rclone move "${backupdir}/${fileNameBackupDbGPG}" OneDrive:backup

Thanks a lot for any hint.


You'd want to reduce checkers and transfers if you are limited on memory.

and how can I reduce checkers and transfers? Btw. I have always only one active file transfer (I mean one file at the same time)

Based on the command you posted, you have 4 transfers and 8 checkers by default.

You can adjust them on the command line:

perfect, thanks a lot. I will test with reducing these values to a minimum.
