I've taken up trying to back up my data to a cloud based provider. I went with Backblaze. I was able to easily set up a bucket and connect. I set up a push and started the job yesterday. I only have under a TB so I realize that it's going to take a LONG time. I figured a week to 10 days AT 15MB upload, which is my upload speed.

However, according to the freenas network metrics it appears that it's only sending at 2MB. It has not gone up, at all. I have been poking around for info on why but have not been able to obtain any insight. I find it funny that there is a feature in 11.3 coming that will throttle it back.

I realize it could be my network but I don't think so.

Does anyone have any insight as to why I am only seeing 2MB upload speeds?

Thanks...

Paste the full output of ifconfig (within code tags).

Anything in /var/log/messages during the backup?

Which version of FreeNAS?

Just curious as to why you think this was a bug? It did finish in a week so I do think it was uploading at more than 2MB.
