comment Are there any .NET alternatives to RDDtool?
@Zypher: Every additional piece of software is added attack surface on your server. Its also another thing to remember to manage and update, so I can totally see the point of the question. That said, I'm a big fan of Cacti, MRTG and MySQL. With a dedicated Linux box (as you suggest) at least you can easily setup automatic updates.

comment Which is faster, and why: transferring several small files or few large files?
@BlaM, as I said in the answer it all comes down to latency. If network latency is added onto each CreateFile operation the total time could be much longer. If the copy is smart enough to concurrently create files perhaps it wouldn't impact the operation.

comment What good system administrator podcasts are out there?
They talk quite a bit about running the stackoverflow.com site. Server configurations, load, uptime, etc. RAID is one of the podcast bingo words... :)
