FreeNAS rclone –bwlimit parameter

Currently FreeNAS GUI does not support setting rclone command line options. I needed to limit sync speed, therefore need to modify the –bwlimit parameter. I will show you how you can do that in current version FreeNAS 11.2-U7

Edit the following file


around line 106 and add bwlimit, example:

        args = [
            "--config", config.config_path,
            "--stats", "1s",
            "--bwlimit", "25M",

Then restart middlewared:

service middlewared restart

Start the job

Now start your cloud sync job and check that the rclone process is using bwlimit or any other parameter you specified:

ps aux|grep 'rclone'

Note: this will probably only work until you apply the next FreeNAS update.
