           Summary: Show progress on terminal when using the checksum
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.9
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org

rsync is fantastic for synchronizing remote sites and most often doing the
compare without -c is sufficient. In this case progress is shown file by file
because building and transmitting the list is pretty fast even for huge
directory trees.

However, if one occasionally wants to verify all data by using parameter -c ,
building the list of all MD5 hashes on a big tree may take hours without any
indication of progress.

I suggest that in this case rsync first determines the total count of files to
be compared, and afterwards updates progress by showing "Calculating MD5 of
file no. xxx of yyy total".

Once the list is built the usual display of messages can be resumed.
