I'm following https://www.linode.com/docs/platform/di ... -over-ssh/
The suggested command to copy disk over internet is 'ssh firstname.lastname@example.org "dd if=/dev/sda " | dd of=/home/archive/linode.img'
I imagine a lot of users works behind a slow internet connection (myself e.g.). The process above can be painfully slow. Considering gzip is available under Lish, for a much better speed (up to 30%), still with a cool niceness level, why not update information there to something like:
'ssh email@example.com "dd if=/dev/sda bs=1M | gzip -1 - " | dd of=linode.img.gz'
This is the right place for suggestions like this?
