I have an annoying sporadic problem and would appreciate your advice.
Every 30 minutes I run the script that boils to following code:
while read d
rsync --password-file=$p -rRlxupogtSq --delete $u@$1::$2/$d $4
> /dev/null 2>&1 &
print "`date +'%T'` sync $2/$d $4" >>$log
done < $KEEPERS
Here $KEEPERS is generated ahead of time once a day and has about 1600
erntries for last 30 days of data that looks like this:
Once in a while ( every week or so), rsync gets "overexcited" and starts
copying older, not listed directories. For example today it was doing
cctranscript.data/2002-06-01 . These directories are never recorded in
the log, so I am pretty sure arguments were passed correctly to rsync.
It looks like by some reason last portion of $d might be dropped off.
When I kill and restart the process, it reads $KEEPERS correctly for an
other several days.
On the server side I have limitation max connections = 300
