Multithread ZIP

Hi Communtiy,

during the last days I had to work a lot with backups.

I recognized that the bottle neck is always gzip, because it only utilize one single core.

Additinally I recognized while gzip is utilizing one thread by 100% it is impacting other processes.

Question: There are already different zip tools in the unix universe supporting multiple threads. Are there plans to implement a multithread zip tool into GAIA and adding its functionallity to gaiabackup and scripts like this?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Sven

Re: Multithread ZIP

In general, I know we will be updating various userspace tools as part of moving to a newer kernel.

Will we update ZIP in particular? Not sure.
