comment How do I know if my hard drive has enough power?
Anecdote: on a couple of servers I built with a RAID set (using disks of different brand) the Seagate ones would temporarily fail (READ FPDMA QUEUED errors) under heavy disk load. After monitoring the voltages we saw how the 12V would sometimes go as low as 11.5 (which I think is still Ok) when the disks failed. We fixed it just using more powerful PSUs (and not trusting Seagate anymore).

You are right, the LogLevel option can do the same thing (in global ssh_config or personal .ssh/config).

Would a Bash script be good for you? Do the small files need to be stored in a given order?
