I am moving a large number of files (about 40 GB, comprising almost 3.5 million files) from one machine to another using rsync.
I am noticing that the longer this rsync process runs, the slower it seems to go, and the more CPU time it is taking on the destination (FreeBSD 6.1). Is there a reason for this ? Is there some aspect of rsync (or FreeBSD) that just starts to bog down after transferring 1-2 million files? When the job started, load on the destination was between .2 and .8, and now, four days later, it is up to 4.0+ ... and as I say, although I have not measured, throughput does seem to be slowing down. Any thoughts / comments ? _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
