    20 This is about the maximum number of parallel request for listing objects


    5 Number of parallel request for uploading big objects. by multipart post request,and sends parallel requests. It is necessary to set this value depending on a CPU and a network band.


    10 Part size, in MB, for each multipart request. The minimum value is 5 MB and the maximum value is 5 GB.


    512 Maximum size, in MB, of a single-part copy before trying multipart copy.


      Disable multipart uploads


    disable Allow check data integrity of uploads via the MD5 checksum. This can add CPU overhead to transfers.


    disable This option instructs a query to the ECS container credential metadata address instead of the instance metadata address.


    no IAM role This option requires the IAM role name or "auto". If you specify "auto", it will automatically use the IAM role names that are set to an instance. If you specify this option without any argument, it is the same as that you have specified the "auto".
