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?

On the listening end:
cd / ; nc -l 12345 | tar xpvf -

On the sending end:
cd / ; tar cf - /path/file | nc <target ip> 12345

Replace 'x' by 't' on the listening end to verify that it's going to do what you would want/expect.
