Sdd - Dd replacement

/ Linux Software Directory / Tool / File / Sdd 
Description:Sdd is a replacement for a program called `dd`. Sdd is much faster than dd in cases where input block size (ibs) is not equal to the output block size (obs). Sdd does not have some of the design bugs of dd that cause the following command to fail: dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s2 bs=126k | rsh otherhost `dd ibs=4k obs=126k of=/dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s2` The output disk will not be equal to the input disk because the dd command on `otherhost` will read fragments of `ibs` and fill them up to 4kB.
