I'm using rsync to copy the home directories on an AIX node with close to 12,000 accounts to a remote AIX node, when I get the following error message:
sending incremental file list
ERROR: out of memory in flist_expand [sender]
rsync error: error allocating core memory buffers (code 22) at util.c(117) [sender=3.0.6]
I'm guessing it's because there are so many directories on the source node. Is there an option in rsync that I can use to handle this issue? Otherwise, I'll have to devise a way to divide the directory list into smaller chunks.
