You can use progress bars to indicate the upload or download progress.

For the complete code of progress bars, see GitHub.

The following code is used as an example to describe how to view progress information with bucket.get_object_to_file:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
from __future__ import print_function
import os, sys
import oss2

# It is highly risky to log on with AccessKey of an Alibaba Cloud account because the account has permissions on all the APIs in OSS. We recommend that you log on as a RAM user to access APIs or perform routine operations and maintenance. To create a RAM account, log on to
auth = oss2. Auth('<yourAccessKeyId>', '<yourAccessKeySecret>')
# This example uses endpoint China (Hangzhou). Specify the actual endpoint based on your requirements.
bucket = oss2. Bucket(auth, '', '<yourBucketName>')
# If the HTTP response header does not carry Content-Length, the value of total_bytes is None.
def percentage(consumed_bytes, total_bytes):
    if total_bytes:
        rate = int(100 * (float(consumed_bytes) / float(total_bytes)))
        print('\r{0}% '.format(rate), end='')


# progress_callback is an optional parameter used to implement progress bar.
bucket.get_object_to_file('<yourObjectName>', '<yourLocalFile>', progress_callback=percentage)
