Yes, it's my home theater computer with all the movies. I've just set up a RAID array and need to move my data there. > At any rate, I was wondering can you break up that /home directory into > several parts in terms of your "rsync" command line. > > Example: rsync... /home/a... > rsync... /home/b... > rsync... /home/c... I thought of this, but so many subdirectories are tiny, and it would be a fussy operation to transfer them individually. If I needed this as a matter of course I might go to the trouble, but I am just waiiting for this to complete so I can watch some decent shows. (MythTV) I've removed the -compress flag and added --whole-file, and am waiting for it to recalculate the transfer. It has already done some small files, and one large file which transferred at 18.65MB/s, a big improvement over 4.5. Still running CPU at 100% on one core.

Carlos as I am CPU-bound on the server, I don't really take the disk read rate very seriously, but iotop says rsync is doing around 85M/s on these three WD Green 2TB drives. -- Please use reply-all for most replies to avoid omitting the mailing list.
