KB450087 – Parallel Rsync

You are here:

Parallel rsync allows you to copy with multiple threads so it can work on different files at the same time. The Parameter “P” sets the number of threads

  • ls -1 $LOCAL_DIR | xargs -I {} -P 5 -n 1 rsync -avh –progress $LOCAL_DIR/{} $RECV_DIR
  • -P sets number of parallel threads


ls -1 /mnt/mylocalfiles/ | xargs -I {} -P 5 -n 1 rsync -avh –progress /mnt/mylocalfiles/{} /mnt/myrecievingdirectory/

Remove {} after /mnt/mylocalfiles/ for Ubuntu
