[Bug 11152] New: Feature Request: Cache Filelist

            Bug ID: 11152
           Summary: Feature Request: Cache Filelist
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.1
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]
        QA Contact: [hidden email]

Making it simple:

--cache=FILENAME -> Enable cache. Cache, for the local folder, will be
stored/read from FILENAME


So, with --cache, instead of browsing through local files/folders, rsync would
rely on the cache stored at FILENAME (or, if it doesn't exist, rsync would
generate it)

Without --cache, rsync would ignore reading/generating a cache and just work as
usual.


Mirror and backup servers are wasting a lot of IO when browsing through
files/folders that will just be changed by rsync. Caching would be perfect.
While browsing mailing list and google, I've found some of people looking for
this feature.

Thanks!

I believe that I can get our company to make a donation/contribution, using
paypal, to have this feature (or, if you prefer, we may contribute with server
hardware which is not in use anymore). If there is any developer available,
please let me know.
