Hi there,

Whole (macOS) system is crashing when transferring a large number of files from
Mac to NAS via rsync.

Running the below command on a directory with thousands of images (~5MB each)
the transfer speed eventually slows down, the system gets choppy, freezes and
then eventually the entire computer reboots.

rsync -va --update --info=progress2 /Volumes/Source/folder

I found this reported here as well:

I experienced this on a M1 Mac mini running macOS Monterey. The stackexchange
post is running Big Sur.

rsync 3.2.3 was installed via homebrew (brew install rsync) so it may be
possible this is a homebrew distribution/compile problem.

The only solution for me was to downgrade back to use the included rsync in
macOS (rsync version 2.6.9 protocol version 29)
