pax versus tar
I'm trying to compare performance of tar and pax utilities. I noticed that pax files are much more in size than tar files. Actually pax files are larger in size than the files contained in the archive file.

I suppose dir1 has many small or zero size files for such a difference to appear. In that case, you certainly can efficiently compress the archive if size is an issue.
