We are running on an RS6000 (H80 with single CPU and 1gb memory). We are
also running a rather large Oracle database on it. I noticed that when
rsync was running, there was a considerable I/O wait (at one point, it
was at 98%!). We installed Rsync from a binary dist, not compiled. I
assume by your use of "build" that you compiled from source?
