ls -lR too slow
Thu Mar 19 07:32:00 GMT 2009
I have a shared folder on my desktop which I have mapped as Z: drive on
my laptop. Both machines are running Vista+SP1. My laptop has a recent
version of Cygwin. When I do "ls -lR /cygdrive/z" it takes very long.
There are only about 700 files on Z: totalling only 100 MB. When I
monitor network counters on laptop, I see that a whopping 90 MB were
downloaded for a payload (file list) of only 60 KB. Out of curiosity, I
did the same experiment between two linux machines configured as NFS
client+server. The ls -lR command on very similar directory tree whet
very fast and only 0.5 MB were downloaded for the same payload. Cygwin
was about 200 times slower. Is that normal?
