I was the original author of:
which basically gave my experience of trying a simple back up. I've not
really tried and large packages, I was trying to keep it simple. I don't
think I tried rsync and nfs together, rather I set up an rsync server. There
was problems with nfs and tar due to the 2G limit (which may be gone) but I
suspect that is less or no issue with rsync + nfs. I did not try rsync +
nfs. I suspect you would need to slit the backup into several chunks to
avoid rsync running out or memory.
