I use an ISP that caps my bandwidth during certain hours, but during low usage hours I have unlimited bandwidth.
As such I would like to pause and unpause duplicati during those timeframes. Is there some way to do that?
I found this: duplicati/pause-resume.py at master · duplicati/duplicati · GitHub but it doesn’t seem to work. When I call it I get:
Something went wrong – 401 Not logged in
Is there something else I need to do to login first?
I haven’t actually used this script before but I’m guessing @Pectojin or @kenkendk will have a suggestion for you.
For what it’s worth, a feature like you describe has been requested a few times already:
I have just added a $5 bounty for this feature at Bountysource (just to kick things off). Please consider adding to it to help make it happen!

The script is fairly simple and doesn’t support logging into Duplicati with a password.
You can use this GitHub - Pectojin/duplicati_client: A command line client for controlling the Duplicati Server
It supports login, so you just have to store the password in a parameters file and then you can use it in your script to login and pause the backups.
