NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

       git annex testremote remote

DESCRIPTION

       This tests a remote by sending objects to it, downloading objects from it, etc.

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

       It's best to make a new remote for testing purposes. While the  test  tries  to  clean  up
       after  itself,  if the remote being tested had a bug, the cleanup might fail, leaving test
       data in the remote.

       Testing will use the remote's configuration, automatically varying the  chunk  sizes,  and
       with  simple  shared encryption disabled and enabled, and exporttree disabled and enabled.
       If the  remote  is  readonly,  testing  is  limited  to  checking  various  properties  of
       downloading from it.

OPTIONS

       --fast

              Perform a smaller set of tests.

       --test-readonly=file
              Normally,  random  objects  are  generated for the test and are sent to the remote.
              When a readonly remote is being tested, that cannot be done, and  so  you  need  to
              specify  some annexed files to use in the testing, using this option. Their content
              needs to be present  in  the  readonly  remote  being  tested,  and  in  the  local
              repository.

              This option can be repeated.

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