in reply to Splitting up a filesystem into 'bite sized' chunks
Just a 'find' takes a substantial amount of time on this filesystem (days).
- Any idea why it takes so long?
- Does find or File::Find spend most of the time waiting for a response from the remote server?
- Would you be able to speed up File::Find by searching multiple directories simultaneously?
If you go down a few directory levels and find (say) 100 subfolders, could you search each of those subfolders simultaneously?
- Would you be able to speed up File::Find by using RPCs?
