We have a server setup for RSync and it runs fine however for some reason transfers will not go over 500 kB/s when transferring.
Both systems are Windows 2003 R2 fully patched and RSync is running as a service on one, and the transfer is initiated from the other via batch file to the module on the server.
However, if I transfer the files using RSync.exe and just a straight UNC to UNC path copy instead of connecting to the server module at the other end transfers are in the MB/s speed range.
So something is limiting the RSync server that runs as a service on the one machine but not transfers using RSync when you just run straight UNC to UNC copy.
Has anyone seen this before?
rsync /cygdrive/d/folder SERVER::MODULENAME is no faster than 500kB/s
rsync.exe /cygdrive/d/folder //server/d$/folder has full bandwidth available to it.
Both connections initiate on server A and copy to server B which is the RSync server.
