I'm trying to sync files from a source machine to a destination machine in the same local network. These machines have less cpu speed. As far as I read in some domcumentations ist that rsync with daemon is less cpu hungry than using it over ssh.

The Question is: Where do I have to start the daemon, on the source or the destination machine?


Daemon is on your source machine, you have only server configured on this one. Then, all destination machines will sync with him.
