Description Chip Schweiss 2015-01-22 14:38:11 UTC
As file systems are getting bigger and bigger, into the multiple petabyte scale rsync is not scaling well, but is still the tool of choice when migrating filesystems from one storage vender to another.

Adding --min-depth and --max-depth options to control what directory depth rsync will operate on would allow better targeted rsync processes.
