New command line options

We have put some more love into duck, the CLI version of Cyberduck. There are now several new options to facilitate automation jobs.

  • --retry <count> allows to repeat failed connections.
  • -y will dismiss all prompts and warnings with Yes by default.
  • --throttle <bytes/second> allows to throttle transfers.

plus the most interesting to improve throughput is

  • --parallel <connections>

to open multiple concurrent connections for transfers (#1135). For downloads, larger files will be segmented into multiple parts (#4498) to transfer with multiple connections and assembled again when complete. This feature will also find its way into version 4.7 of Cyberduck.
