Hello ,
my droplet is Centos , FRA1 data center ,
i’m trying to upload backup to my google drive using command line .
however upload speed is very slow , it’s vary from 400 KB to 3.0 MB but usually about 1.5 MB ,
i’m trying to upload 30 GB it took about 5:30 hours
is this a normal upload speed ?
Also , is there any limitation on number of visitors per droplet ?

Hey,

It might be that there is an account limit @ your gdrive. It might also be the client you are using to upload the back'up. Try running this:

wget -O speedtest-cli https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py
chmod +x speedtest-cli
./speedtest-cli

to see if there is a network issue. Running ./speedtest-cli -h will also provide you with a few options like choosing the location of the test servers.

As for the number of visitors, the limit depends on the application they are trying to access and the physical resources the droplet has, such as RAM, CPU, Disk speed. For new accounts there is also a Bandwidth limit which is stated on the pricing page.
