Hi all,

Is there a faster way to copy files over NFS?

Currently breaking up a simple rsync over 7 or so scripts which copies 22 dirs having ~500,000 dirs or files each.

Obviously reading all the meta data is a PITA.

Doin 10Gb/jumbos but in this case it don't make much of a hoot of a diff.

Going from a 38TB used, 50TB total BlueArc Titan 3200 to a new shiny 80TB total FreeBSD 9.2RC1 ZFS bad boy.

Thanks in advance,
