I am trying to sync 2 folders; documents and videos, on two Win 10 computers. I primarily work on one of them, the other is the one that I travel with but it is nice to have the same “stuff” on both.
A few minutes after syncthing starts transferring data, it apparently just saturates the network. I set the transfer limit to 1,024 B/s for upload rate and download rate on both machines, and I set the limits on both machines.
For testing, I can open up a command window and ping google and get decent ping times and no dropped packets. Within a few seconds of unpausing syncthing the ping window starts dropping packets and every other device on the network has speed issues.
I have a wget process on another machine on the network throttled back to 10K/sec and that causes zero problems, and just ticks along happy.
I am apparently doing something wrong with syncthing and setting up the up and download limits. I should be able to set them to 50K or so and not be obtrusive.
So, what am I doing wrong with syncthing?
