Rsync File List Generation time is huge
We currently have setup RSync to backup the file system of our production server to a backup server. RSync takes really long and please see below the log details. As you notice here, the file list generation time is really huge and the transfer time is small. Is there any way that we can decrease the file list generation time.
We are using: rsync -avz -e 'ssh -c arcfour' source destination command line options.

lsyncd or (if blocklevel is acceptable: ) DRBD might be suitable for you.
Other than that, setting noatime as a mount option helps a bit, but in general many little files are a pita.
You could try and kill the problem with hardware (lots of 15k spindles in raid10 or multiple SSDs) or divide the data.You must always face the curtain with a bow.
