multiple sessions to same destination

Yeah, you're fine, as long as, as you say, no two sessions are accessing 
the same objects.  Even then, rsync handles it fairly well... you just 
won't be able to be sure what you have.
One thing I would suggest, though.  If it's possible, make all the systems 
that are sending the data into rsync servers, and pull from them to the 
central one.  rsync daemon writing was never really what it was for, and 
is known to be a bit unreliable.

Hi All,

I had a look in archives but no joy.

I just want to know before i deploy - if there is any problem with having
multiple rsync sessions from many source locations all to same destination
server ( all copying to different file systems obviously ) ?? Its jusat 
i see on the destination machine a process rsync -server being called
whenever a client connects. 

Thanks !
