I'm using rsync version 2.5.5 on OpenBSD 3.3 to backup the users /home
directory over the Internet. It's started by a cron job every night. For
logging I've add the -vv parameter and redirect the output to a logfile.
rsync -vv --stats --archive --delete --backup --backup-dir=/home/backupdir
--compress --rsh 'ssh -2 -i keyfile.key' /home
user at server:/home/backup/current >/home/logs/date.log 2>&1
All the files are transferred successfully but logging doesn't work OK.
When I add a file into the /home directory rsync picks him up and transfers
him to the server, but when I look into the logfile he says that the file
is uptodate and did not transfer anything. That's strange because the new
file is on the server...
Also when I check the server Internet statistics I see that the outgoing
traffic is much bigger than the incoming traffic (23M IN, 35M OUT). Is this
Does anybody know a solution?
Thanks for the help.
