Pull up the perldoc's for MogileFS::Client, the example section is
practically what you want already.
When migrating gaiaonline.com to mogilefs we tried an easy path.
- I wrote a 30 line perl script to migrate data. "Is data already in
mogilefs? If not, store. Next".
- We had the application try mogilefs first, then the old storage second.
- Then waited three days while the script pulled in 10 million files.
If we _really_ needed it to go faster there were other options, but the
simpler the method the more likely it is to work for you :)
