    I understand that rsync can show progress during file transfer procedure. It either can show individual progress using --info=progress or progress for the whole transfer using --info=progress2.

    Is there any way I can combine these 2? I want to see the time taken for individual file and the time taken for the whole transfer.

    If you only want to see the time taken for the entire transfer after the fact, try prefixing your command with time:
    $ time rsync [whatever]

    The job will finish with a small table:
    real 1m1.443s
    user 0m0.033s
    sys 0m16.973s
