Proposal : Bandwidth - Rsync / Onediff


Here is just an suggestion about adding a parameter to the script to allow setting the bandwidth limitation of rsync "--bwlimit".
I have not tried it by changing the command in the script yet but I think it may be a useful option :
(Moreover as OneDiff transfer is also using rsync it may be for both rsync + onediff)

- In case of long remote backup and in a environment with router without bandwidth management (during working days of the week).
(I have tested backup for first time this weekend but it take long time, using "onediff:z")

- It may also be a good option to check backup time in local configuration by limiting bandwidth to the one of wan connection.

In addition here is a feedback of my case, my backups were faster before using OneDiff when I was doing following :
- Local backup of virtual machine on a NAS using NFS share (backup using ghettoVCB)
- Then Rsync the backup folders on my remote NAS (using rsync tool of the NAS)

I will try make a backup with "rsync:z" instead of "onediff:z" to check it.
