Q regarding large transfers.

I read in the FAQ that rsync uses ~100 bytes/file of RAM when building
the list. I wonder, is there a way to measure how long this process takes
(adding one file to the file list)?

I would like to synchronize terrabytes of data but I'm afraid the scanning
process will take a _very_ long time.

Does rsync have some smart caching algorithm up its sleeve so it does not
have to perform a total rescan upon the next synchronization?
