I made a few tests with rsync and compared to ftp it is very slow ( it
take 8 times longer to copy a big file)

226 File send OK.
642252800 bytes received in 00:54 (11.19 MB/s)

rsync -r --progress samba@galileo2::samba /data01
642252800 100% 1.45MB/s 0:07:01

My rsyncd.conf is

gid = users
read only = true
use chroot = true
transfer logging = true
log format = %h %o %f %l %b
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
hosts allow =

read only = false
path = /data01
comment = samba Dateien
auth users = samba
secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.secrets

The net is 100MBit, the machines are two processor XEON P4 with
Hyperthreading, so it should not be the hardware.

Can I set anything to make it faster ?
