I have a backup server now restoring 6TB of data to a client machine. This has been going on for four days now, and no sign of getting close to completion.
The connexion is Gb enet end-to-end, and is running at only 40Mb/s. It has far more capacity than that. The only limiting factor I can see is on the backup server one core of the CPU is running 100% rsync. Clearly rsync is not multi-threaded. In researching this I find that a change to multi-threaded goodness would require a massive rewrite, and would only be considered for an rsync replacement. Is there such a replacement in the offing? Is there any sort of workaround for the time being? ATM the large amount of data is the /home directory on the client machine. -- Please use reply-all for most replies to avoid omitting the mailing list.
