I'd recommend doing --inplace, as chances are that data won't move
within a file with oracle data files (so it's not useful to try to find
moved data), and copying the 4TB to temp. files every time could become
a big timewaster. Also the -t option could be handy, not all files
change all the time IIRC.
I can't use -t because the oracle datafiles header information are constanly
updated so it will definetely change.
But I have tried various options including --inplace,--no-whole-file etc.,
for last few weeks but all the results show me removing the destination
server oracle datafiles and after that doing an "rsync -vz" from source is
faster than copying(rsyncing) over the old files that are present in
I put list of rsync file commands in a batch file and spawn them so that
they run in background.
