rsync rocks my home!
With the release of grml 0.3 I wondered if it does gain much while trying to suck the image via rsync. So I did the following:
$> mv grml_0.2.iso grml_0.3.iso
$> rsync rsync://grml.gwendoline.at/grml/grml_0.3.iso grml_0.3.iso
Because grml is based on unstable really much has changed, so I wonder what the outcome might be. And it really astonished me:
sent 189798 bytes received 377290139 bytes 444879.12 bytes/sec
total size is 727541760 speedup is 1.93
That means in fact, that only
(189798+377290139)/727541760*100 == 51% of the total iso image file size got transfered. Woohhh!! People, pretty please start using rsync for such jobs more often!
