I'm running into a problem with scp under some conditions that are associated with transferring multiple GB files to a SUSE® LINUX Enterprise Server 9 (kernel 2.6.xx) system on an SGI Altix350 w/ 32GB of memory.
I used scp -r -p to copy a directory to another on on the same server for some reason starts using lots of memory, and the cached in top command growing very fast. Samba is running on the system.
If you have any comments either on scp or on a different way to copy a directory with a huge number of directories and files. I'd be interested to hear about it.
Thanks for your help, KhalilHL
