On a production server, I'm planning on uploading a single file or a set of files that may be 500 megs in size.
I havent' test it just yet, but just want some opinions on whether you think this will significantly impact the server?
The reason I ask, when I am SSH'd into the server, and on my laptop if I scp a file to my server that is maybe 10 megs I notice the SSH terminal to be very slow to respond. I understand I am on a simple vps with only 512ram, but I wouldn't have thought it would impact it so much.
My product server is a xeon 3450, but again the file size is 500 megs. I know I can break the file down into smaller parts, but was wondering if I could rate limit the upload process somehow also?
