set speed limit to rsync?


Hi,

Is there a way to set a limit for transfer speed of rsync?

Rsync is sometimes negatively affecting other processes which are transferring a lot of data between two servers and I would like to set it transfer speed to a minimum, because rsync has much lower priority for me.

Thanks

And for those that don't know it and too lazy to read the man pages it's:

--bwlimit=KBPS

For anyone curious, this parameter also seems to apply to disk transfers.

If, like me, you've got a nasty old external disk refusing DMA rattling around and you want to transfer files without chunking your processor, this is the way to do it.

Sorry, that's what I was implying.
