I am looking to throttle the upload speed of my file transfers during an rsync process.
Does --bwlimit=KBPS mean it sets the internet transfer speed, or the hard drive disk write speed?
--bwlimit=KBPS limit I/O bandwidth; KBytes per second
Also, in the manual it says
Rsync can also be run as a daemon, in which case the following options are accepted:
And that's where the description for --bwlimit=KBPS is listed.
Does that mean rsync has to be run in daemon mode in order to use that command?
IF... --bwlimit=KBPS is referring to the internet transfer speed of my files...
Can anyone provide an example of how I can alter my command line in order to limit the upload speed of my file transfers using rsync?
Here is what I am currently using:
rsync -avz -e 'ssh' firstname.lastname@example.org:/var/www/* /var/www/
