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

SYNOPSIS
       git annex testremote remote

DESCRIPTION
       This tests a remote by generating some random objects and sending them
       to the remote, then redownloading them, removing them from the remote,
       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.

OPTIONS
       --fast

              Perform a smaller set of tests.

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