we have to synchronize an heavy directory between two HNAS interconnected through a VPN and with a 14ms network latency between each.
On the source directory I will have to exclude some sub-directories and many files types to get it more lighter.
People will have to work (NFS read/write) on both source and destination path.
I am trying to use the "File replication" feature and make some NDMP custom rules to exclude the files.
Although the sync is not very efficient (mainly due to TCP latency), It seems to work.
By the way, as File Replication is normally used as a filesystem backup feature, can you please confirm there is no risk to use it as "a classical rsync".
I am looking forward to any remarks or suggestions ...
