I have a problem with "out of memory", I'm trying to sync around 30mil 
files and i get error, the sync is on the same host but different 
directory, this with the 100bytes per file, give me 3G of ram. I have 
put 12G swap (6 partitions of 2G) and my 3G ram. Last i saw the process 
rsync get to 2100M of SIZE and 1.8G RSS, don't know exactly at how much 
it gets till he get the error, but not too far after 2G.

How can i solve the problem, i use 2.6.3 version.

Thanks for advice
