We're using rsnapshot for backups. It keeps lots of snapshots of the backuped up file, but it does delete old ones. This is good. However it's taking about 7 hours to do a
rm -rf on a massive directory tree. The filesystem is XFS. I'm not sure how many files are there, but it numbers in the millions probably.
Is there anyway to speed it up? Is there any command that does the same as
rm -rf and doesn't take hours and hours?
