Bug du -k shows different size in two nodes

After rcp -rp from remote host, using du -k to verify the file size but total file size have different size. Check on individual file, file size is correct.

How can I confirm on the file size after ftp?

Pls advise.
Thank you.

cluster size?

all you are interested in is the exact byte length of the file and possibly it's MD5 signature, the space on disk is much less of a concern.

Did you notice?

Code:
     When the sizes of the files in a  directory  are  listed,  a
     total   count  of  blocks,  including  indirect  blocks,  is
     printed.

Try the following..

Code:
ls -ld *  | wc -l
ls -ld .*  | wc -l

on each.

both node shows the same:

# ls -ld * | wc -l
6
# ls -ld .* | wc -l
2

So

(a) you have all the files

(b) the file byte lengths are correct.

I would count that as success.
