NAME

git-annex testremote - test transfers to/from a remote

SYNOPSIS

git annex testremote remote

DESCRIPTION

This tests a remote by generating some random objects and sending them to the remote, then redownloading them, removing them from the remote, etc.

It's safe to run in an existing repository (the repository contents are not altered), although it may perform expensive data transfers.

Testing a single remote will use the remote's configuration, automatically varying the chunk sizes, and with simple shared encryption enabled and disabled.

OPTIONS

  • --fast

    Perform a smaller set of tests.

  • --size=NUnits

    Tune the base size of the generated objects. The default is 1MiB.
