I have a question about rsync, which is new for me. Hope you can help me:
I have copied a binary file whose size is about 100 MB using rsync and I noticed that it takes a lot of time.
The same size with a text file wasted really much less time.
That binary file is incremental, i.e. it started with a size of 2 kb and then it grew up.
But now I am confused with the following:
Is the performance of rsync better with no-incremental files?
Is the performance of rsync better with text files?
Is it the best tool for binary-incremental files? And if it is, which parameters do I have to use on rsync?
Thanks in advance for your kindly help.
