Rsync can be used to sync directories and files from one machine to another. Sometime we want to see the progress and transfer speed. For this –progress (or -P) option can be used.
$ rsync --progress -a file2.out prod1.infoheap.com: sending incremental file list file2.out 207,585,280 19% 28.29MB/s 0:00:29
In addition use
-voption to print overall transfer rate in the end.
$ rsync --progress -v -a file2.out prod1.infoheap.com: sending incremental file list file2.out 1,073,741,824 100% 28.62MB/s 0:00:35 (xfr#1, to-chk=0/1) sent 1,074,004,069 bytes received 35 bytes 29,424,769.97 bytes/sec total size is 1,073,741,824 speedup is 1.00
