I noticed the Onedrive backend is using large amounts of downlink data during (initial) backup - almost half of the uplink data usage. Is the Onedrive API’s really so bad or why this is happening?
I used nethogs on Linux to monitor the data traffic:
NetHogs version 0.8.5-2
PID USER PROGRAM DEV SENT RECEIVED
30504 user duplicacy eth0 1368.410 622.809 KB/sec
On Windows 10 the downlink traffic is 1/10th of the uplink.
