Hi all,

To copy data from one server, I normally (always) use scp.

I'm looking for a method to perform this copy task without the overhead
of encryption for infrequent, high-volume transfers (hundreds to
thousands of GB).

The data will be transferred server-to-server within a private datacentre.

Can someone recommend a *known good* production quality copy mechanism
that will act like scp, but without the overhead? rsh? nc?

I recall a thread not too long ago regarding this, but I'd like to have
a simple working example if possible, without getting into detail why
one shouldn't transfer data unencrypted.

dump should work, it uses rsh. something like cpio could be piped into rsh obviously. You may want to benchmark it as I've had better transfer rates using scp/ssh but have not done it against rsh method.
