Both scp and rsync have bandwidth limit control

I was talking to someone today who knew about rsync's bandwidth control, but not about scp's. Yep, they both have it.


For rsync, you specify the bandwidth limit it KB/s.

rsync --bwlimit 200 foo server:bar

My common usage is:

rsync -avz -e ssh --bwlimit 200 --progress foo server:bar


For scp, you specify the limit in Kb/s (kilobits vs. kiloBytes).

scp -l 1600 foo server:bar
