Restricting bandwidth usage

(beware b and B differences in this article!)

Use the --bwlimit= parameter. Values are in kB/s.

So for example, 800kb/s would be --bwlimit=100

You can use this to slow down rsync's impact on a machine's hard disk. For example, using a limit of around 10MB/s you would use --bwlimit=10000

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
