[Bug 9560] drop-cache option

--- Comment #6 from Michele Dionisio michele.dioni...@gmail.com ---
Hi, I'm testing the patch on 3.1.1 on an embedded device with swapless linux.

The patch works perfect on my application but to avoid to apply the patch also
on the remote side (where I have no control) I have saparated the new command
line option --drop-cache in 2:
--drop-cache   that works local
--remote-drop-cachethat works on remote

I think that the patch is more or less mandatory on embedded linux machine to
avoid oomkill from not o well tuned kernel and to increase general performance.

regards, and many thanks

Since the patch is very linux-specific and overly klugy, it is better handled
by a general-purpose (linux-specific) wrapper that can be used with any copy
utility.

I'd suggest checking into this utility:

https://github.com/Feh/nocache

I've compiled/installed it and done some basic testing, and it seems to do a
good job of issuing the fadvise64() calls on the files rsync opens.

Some examples:

nocache rsync -aiv --rsync-patch='nocache rsync' some-host:/src/ /dest/
nocache rsync --daemon

usefull.

I hate to say “me too”, but I would really like to see this. Is there anything
I can do to help make this happen? As you can see at
http://tobi.oetiker.ch/patches/, the patch is maintained since 2007!
