Does NFS run checksums while its copying?
I need to know because I am copying 10GB database files and I can't MD5 them to verify because they are too big.
If there is a better way to do it let me know . :) ty

NFS is on top of each filesytem, so if the filesystem does checks, NFS does too

NFS is error free. It can not tolerate any error.
