Thanks to everyone who replied. I'm using 100+ rented cloud servers to do stuff for me and rsync the results back to a server I own. I'm sure I could use a db or zip file somehow, but my goal is to get the data centralized ASAP, since I'm paying per hour for the rented cloud servers. DBs and ZIP files would take more time. Once I have the data on my server, I can take as much time as I want. My problem: I ran out of inodes during the rsync process, and had to re-do some of the work, wasting some of my cloud servers time/money. I ended up settling on zfs. It hung hard once (had to reboot the server), which scares me, but it otherwise behaves very well. With compress=gzip-9, it's even saving me disk space. Yes, I realize cloud computing is cheap (and I'm actually still on a free trial), but I value efficiency. -- We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying to understand and assimilate technology.
