I have a simple Linux 2.6.x Kernel running on an appliance. I need to move a couple hundred large 1-2GB log files to an archive on a NAS server. Problem is when I move these files at full throttle critical processes running on the server slow to a crawl. I currently have a directory on the NAS server mounted as a volume and I'm using the mv command to move the files.
Is there a way to throttle the speed of my file transfer?
