            Bug ID: 11152
           Summary: Feature Request: Cache Filelist
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.1
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW

Making it simple:

--cache=FILENAME -> Enable cache. Cache, for the local folder, will be
stored/read from FILENAME

So, with --cache, instead of browsing through local files/folders, rsync would
rely on the cache stored at FILENAME (or, if it doesn't exist, rsync would
generate it)

Without --cache, rsync would ignore reading/generating a cache and just work as

Mirror and backup servers are wasting a lot of IO when browsing through
files/folders that will just be changed by rsync. Caching would be perfect.
While browsing mailing list and google, I've found some of people looking for
this feature.
