Hi,

i just tested iFolder with an autocad file (.dwg) of 4.1 megs.
So here is exactly what i did :

Phase 1:

i Added this file to my iFolder.
Started ethereal (packet analyser)
I synchronized th iFolder on my remote server.
Stopped ethereal -> save the summary

Phase 2:

I overwrote the autocad file with a newer version of 4.9 megs.
Started Ethereal
I synchronized th iFolder on my remote server.
Stopped ethereal -> save the summary

First impression the upload is very slow with iFolder:

I have a 1024kbs upload bandwith and the remote server has a 100mbs up/down bandwith and i took about 5 minutes for phase 1.

And it took about 6 minutes for phase 2.

The ethereal report only prooved that the all file has been entirely resent after the phase 2.

Ok maybe the binary file of the autocad has completly changed after some modifications.

But how can i mesure the incremental functionaly of iFolder ?

I believe it's based on rSync, is there a tool to evaluate the differences between file versions ?

Does anyone have any expierience to share about a real world usage of iFolder?

Thanks
