Seems to be working much better. I just installed it on our main servers,
the client gets,
treacy 29488 4.4 5.2 3768 3320 p5 S 20:32 0:15 rsync -avz
treacy 29511 7.9 9.8 6660 6164 p5 S 20:33 0:23 rsync -avz
And the server gets,
treacy 15724 9.7 6.5 5512 4132 ? S 22:32 0:33 rsync --server
Which is much nicer I think, I'll see how the other archive does later on.
Do I need to get the clients to upgrade to the newest version to get the
reduced memory usage on the server?
BTW, I don't know if you have heard the story, but rsync is one of the few
programs that is capable of mirroring our Bug pages, the perl stuff just
chokes! The Bug archive has -alot- of small text files.
