I'm running on server A (Source):
dd bs=16M if=/dev/sda|bzip2 -c|nc serverB.example.net 19000
On server B (Destination):
nc -l -p 19000|bzip2 -d|dd bs=16M of=/dev/sdb
Do I need to see some progress somewhere? (Server's A /dev/sda is 50GB)
I've been waiting for 20 minutes, still both are running, how can I know that its really transferring data / etc?
