What i want to do is to copy 500K of files.
I want to copy within server from one destination to another.It includes emails mostly so many small files.
Its over 23 GB only but takes so long (over 30 mins and not done yet) , linux cp command also only uses 1 CPU .
So if i script it to use multiple cps , would that make it faster.
System is 16 cores , 16 GB Ram , 15K Drivers (15000 RPM SATA) .
What are other options?
I believe tarring and untaring would take even longer and wont use multi-core ..
