Scp is quite slow for transferring individual files. What is the quickest way to do this?
The reason I need speed is not because I have a large number of files to transfer. I just want the individual file transfer (start to finish) to finish quickly (so rsync and tar and transfer are not quick enough).
I am currently attempting to transfer over 1 million files from one server to another. Using wget, it seems to be extremely slow, probably because it starts a new transfer after the previous one has been completed.
Question: Is there a faster non-blocking (asynchronous) way to do the transfer?
I am currently using a Server 2008 R2 box with IIS 7.5. I have IIS FTP+SSL setup and working properly with AD accounts. My issue lies in upload speeds. On a previous unix host FTP transfers were quick both with large files, and small files in any quantity.
I recently obtained a Seagate Expansion 3TB external harddrive. I'm trying to copy over all of my stuff to prepare for reformatting and installing a new OS. A handful of my mp3s did not transfer when I was doing my music folder. I checked them after the fact and the ORIGINAL files became corrupted somehow. I am certain of at least a few that were not corrupted in anyway before doing this.
He's got these files for linux, like installations, and some themes, and stuff like that, but it's not like windows, idk how to transfer files. On AIM on windows i can just transfer files, but i cant do it the same way with Ubuntu, does anyone have any ideas, thanks.
