Banwidth Limit When Transfering Files With Rsync PDF
Monday, 06 February 2012
If you want to sync two machines over SSH but you do not want to use all available bandwidth (you do not want to saturate it) so the Internet line could be used for other purposes (for example the same line is used for company traffic) then there's a way to do that using -i --bwlimit=KBPS option from rsync:

So to sync over SSH and also limit bandwidth at 200 Kbytes/s run:

  rsync -e 'ssh -p 22' -i --bwlimit=200 -avc source/  This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it :/~destination

So this is how you limit a rsync transfer over SSH.
