SUN box, 2gig ram, hard drive space to spare. Rsync 2.5.5, solaris 5.7
version 7.
Half moon, I think it only seems to work on full moon nights.

Here's the command I run as well  .....
/usr/local/bin/rsync --delete --partial -P -p -z -e /usr/local/bin/ssh /dir1

Kindest Regards,

And how much memory do you have.

And start a new thread.  "rsync help" is about the worst
possible Subject you could have used.  Try something like
"out of memory in generate_sums"
