Machine A, Windows Server 2003. Machine B, Ubuntu 9.04.
Aim is to copy new and updated files only automatically as fast as possible from A to B. B can mount A either as CIFS or NFS (Services for Unix NFS server running on A). This is an absolutely time critical operation.
What is the best way of achieving this? Can inotify work over CIFS or NFS?
Note: benchmarked NFS vs CIFS and CIFS was faster and there was less variance in the speed (haven't tuned the NFS setup at all)
