Global EC2 Monitoring Implementation Proposal 04 January 2021

Background information:

Rclone is a command-line / UI Based program to manage files on cloud storage. It is a feature-rich alternative to cloud vendors’ web storage interfaces. Over 40 cloud storage products support rclone, including S3 object stores, business & consumer file storage services, as well as standard transfer protocols.

Rclone mounts any local, cloud, or virtual filesystem as a disk on Windows, macOS, Linux, and FreeBSD, and also serves these over SFTP, HTTP, WebDAV, FTP, and DLNA.

Rclone is mature, open-source software initially inspired by rsync and written in Go. The friendly support community is familiar with various use cases. Official Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, Brew, and Chocolatey repos. include rclone. For the latest version downloading from is recommended.

What can rclone do for you?

Rclone helps you:

  • Backup (and encrypt) files to cloud storage
  • Restore (and decrypt) files from cloud storage
  • Mirror cloud data to other cloud services or locally
  • Migrate data to cloud or between cloud storage vendors
  • Mount multiple, encrypted, cached or diverse cloud storage as a disk
  • Analyze and account for data held on cloud storage using lsf, ljson, size, ncdu
  • Union file systems together to present multiple local and/or cloud file systems as one

The Feature of MultiCloud (Rclone):

  • Transfers
    • MD5, SHA1 hashes are checked at all times for file integrity
    • Timestamps are preserved on files

Step in Microservice (Docker):


FROM alpine:latest

# Define environment variables


ARG ARCH=amd64


RUN apk –no-cache add \

  ca-certificates \

  curl \

  fuse \



RUN cd /tmp && \

  wget${RCLONE_VERSION}-linux-${ARCH}.zip && \

  unzip /tmp/rclone-${RCLONE_VERSION}-linux-${ARCH}.zip && \

  mv -v /tmp/rclone-*-linux-${ARCH}/rclone /usr/bin && \

  rm -r /tmp/rclone* && \

  apk del \

  curl \



# Define mountable directories.

VOLUME [“/config”]

VOLUME [“/media”]


EXPOSE 5572/tcp


ENTRYPOINT [“sh”, “-c”, “/usr/bin/rclone rcd –rc-web-gui –config=/config/rclone.conf –rc-user=uma148 –rc-pass=password –rc-addr=                        2 –rc-serve”]

Installation Step in VisualHost:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y


Now, install Rclone

sudo apt install rclone

sudo snap install rclone

rclone config

At first, we have to make a new “remote”. Enter “n”.

Now, provide a name for the new connection. In my case, it’s going to be “myGoogleDrive”.

It’s time to select which service you want to use. In our case, we need Google Drive. Enter “7”.

As of the “client_id” and “client_secret”, leave them blank.

Next up, enter “y” to use auto-configuration.

The tool will pop up the default browser and ask you for logging into your account. Log into your Google account.


When asked, click “Allow”.

At this point, you can go back to the Rclone console. Enter “y”.
