[REQ] Improve fuzzy using files being uploaded
Last modified: 2017-01-19 08:05:33 UTC
Let's imagine the sender is uploading a bunch of files which are quite similar.
For example, the following dir :
For the moment, if no remote fuzzy basis is found at the very beginning of the transfer, every file will be fully uploaded.
Goal would then be to improve rsync so that once the first file has been uploaded, fuzzy algorithm could look at this new file as a fuzzy basis file for the other new files arriving. Same thing once the second file has been uploaded etc...
Perhaps it could be done once for all at the very beginning of the transfer, also taking the list of files which will be uploaded (sent by the sender), and their properties, to feed the fuzzy algorithm.
This would speed-up transfer in a number of situations.
Thank you very much !
