I manage more than 30 FreeBSD servers and manage to fully saturate a gigabit interface during rsync backups everyday.

Have no idea where or how this guy is getting his results. I notice he's pretty stark regarding comments on the details of his testing.

I have brought up the point various times in the past here about a total lack of information as to the specifics of a test and got flamed for it. This is another example of comparing oranges to something, but you have no idea what that something is.

I guess it is more important to push an agenda by any means available than to publish something that can be verified or duplicated by a third party.
