Description : bdsync is a fast block device synchronizing tool
Bdsync can be used to synchronize block devices over a network. It
generates a "binary diff" in an efficient way by comparing MD5
checksums of 32k blocks of the local block device LOCDEV and the
remote block device REMDEV.
This binary diff can be sent to the remote machine and applied to
its block device DSTDEV, after which the local blockdev LOCDEV and
the remote block device REMDEV are synchronized.
bdsync was built to do the only thing rsync isn't able to do: syn‐
chronize block devices.
