If you want to upload many files smaller than 8mb increase only --transfers option

rclone -v --transfers=16 --drive-chunk-size=16384k --drive-upload-cutoff=16384k copy local_dir gdrive_config:remote_drive_dir

--transfers=N number parallel of connection. default: 4

--drive-chunk-size=N if file bigger than this size it will splits into multiple upload, increase if you want better speed. default: 8192k or 8mb

--drive-upload-cutoff=N should be same with chunk size

-v option to view upload progress stats
