Large file transfers over a network connection.
I have recently run into a problem at work. I manage quite a bit of data, however it is all images (jpeg, gif etc). I have one server that houses roughly 2TB of this data but I need to be able to transfer this from one server to another server. For various reasons I have to use my gigabit network connection to do this. At the present time we are using the "tar cf - stuff | ssh email@example.com tar xf - -C /home/dir" method but the through put is horrible. We have also tried using the " -c blowfish" option on ssh but this doesn't really help, on top of that we have also tried changing the tar block size which also....doesn't help. Any ideas?
