Running rsync with a large*
--block-size like this:
rsync -avvz --rsh 'ssh -c arcfour' --block-size 1048576 --inplace --progress example.com:/big.file /big.file
I get the following error:
Invalid block length 1048576 [sender]
Both ends are running 64bit CentOS 6.4. From Googling I've seen
--block-size used with much higher values, why is this not working for me?
* I'm using a large block size because I'm trying to work around a bug where rsync just spins CPU forever 44% into a 300GB file
