I need to read a large log file and send it over a local network using (netbsd) netcat between two VMs on the same host workstation.
I know that netcat has an interval, but as far as I can tell, the smallest interval you can use is 1 line/second.
Most of the files I need to send this way have hundreds of thousands of lines, and some close to a million lines, so one line per second isn't feasible.
If I just use cat, my host computer/workstation winds up getting bogged down to the point of being unusable.
Using bash and common *nix tools, is there a way I can send the files, but feed it to netcat at a rate of say, 5-10 lines/second or something like that?
The end goal of this is to allow me to do some proof of concept testing for a centralized log database I am considering.
