I have been using rsync to copy some web site files to a new (to me) hosting platform. Yesterday I was doing this and noticed that my ssh login to cPanel in another terminal window was unresponsive.
On looking at the browser display of my cPanel admin window I saw that the 'Physical Memory Usage' was banging up against my limit of 1Gb. No other limits are being reached at all, at most there's 4 or 5 processes running, CPU load and I/O use is negligable. I'm running rsync version 3.0.9 protocol version 30 and the cPanel receiving end is rsync version 3.0.9 protocol version 30. Is this to be expected (using so much memory) or is something going wrong somewhere? More to the point is there anything I can do about it? -- Chris Green -- Please use reply-all for most replies to avoid omitting the mailing list.
