I am running s3cmd-0.9.9.91 on CentOS, and I get the following output
with the command:
s3cmd -v sync --delete-removed backup/postgresql/
INFO: Compiling list of local files...
INFO: Retrieving list of remote files for
INFO: Found 63 local files, 30 remote files
INFO: Applying --exclude/--include
INFO: Verifying attributes...
The last step takes many minutes, while the compiling the local and
remote lists is very fast. Furthermore, python consumes 35% of the CPU
during this process. My CentOS comes with Python 2.4.3.
Eventually, if found 33 local files to upload, 0 remote files to delete,
and the upload began, but it must have been after 10 minutes or so.
What could be taking so long about the "verifying attributes" step?
