Slow Upload to Google Drive

Question

I've spent the last hour or so looking through old posts along with the FAQ and have yet to find an acceptable solution. I currently have a 240 GB SSD that I'm testing CloudDrive on to seed long term and my upload speed continues to crawl.

I've played around with different threads for UL/DL, along with different cache types, but my upload barely rises above 8mbps, usually 3-4 mbps. I have 1Gbit Up/Down at home, so something I'm doing must be the issue. The only thing I have testing currently is a single 40GB torrent.

Any advice on what settings to tweak exactly in order to reach somewhat acceptable upload and download speeds?

There is a possibility that your ISP simply has poor peering with Google, or you have a problem with your network. Upload speed, in particular, is almost entirely determined by chunk size and upload threads. So if you've got 5 threads or so and a 20 MB chunk size, you should easily be able to hit several hundred mbps.

That's extremely weird since rclone will max out my connection, even with a single file. There must be something else afoot.

Try recreating the drive with larger chunk sizes. 

Also, maybe see about disabling the upload threshold. 

Recreating it with larger chunk sizes did it. I maxed out the chunk size upon creation and am now getting the normal 300-500mbps upload for a single file to Google.

Thanks!
