comment How to clear all cache files in linux server ( RHEL 5)
Someone may be able to suggest something else if you explained why you want to. vm/drop_caches wipes the OS's caches of files on disc; it has no semantic effect just kills performance, which makes it useful for performance testing and (mostly) nothing else.

comment svn servers auto synchronise
In which case take a consistent filesystem snapshot and rsync that. I'd assumed that the backup would be taken out of hours when commits were unlikely; this is not going to work if there are lots of developers in multiple time zones working on it.

comment How to repeatedly call rsync until files are sucessfully transferred
While the answers below are helpful, it might be a better idea to find out why it's failing and make it stop. I assume you control the server, the client and the network in between, so you can run tcpdump at various places to see how it was closed. Perhaps one of your firewall or VPN devices is closing the connection?

comment Compressing Encrypted files
That would definitely not work. Based64 encoding would make it 33% bigger and then the compression might reduce it back to only slightly bigger than the original. Useless.

comment Bonding Nics with Linux to get better performance
What interconnect is your storage array using to connect to the switch? Are you SURE you can get 2Gbit/s throughput out of your storage, or are you just seeing some caching artifact?
