Rsync over SSH - (40MB/s over 1GB NICs)

The fastest remote directory rsync over ssh archival I can muster (40MB/s over 1gb NICs)

This creates an archive that does the following:

rsync (Everyone seems to like -z, but it is much slower for me)

  • a: archive mode - rescursive, preserves owner, preserves permissions, preserves modification times, preserves group, copies symlinks as symlinks, preserves device files.
  • H: preserves hard-links
  • A: preserves ACLs

Bash stuff for fighting a weak DOS attack
# Here a few bash one-liners that helped me analyze / fight a weak DOS attack against Mostly for future reference.
# The attacker was opening lots of tcp connections without sending data, I believe it's called a SYN flood, see:
# Step 0: Check what is going on at port 80
$ netstat -tan | grep ':80 ' | awk '{print $6}' | sort | uniq -c
# Step 1: Increase the number of available fds
$ ulimit -n 32000
# Step 2: Restart your webserver, for me:
