Here is what I am trying to accomplish.
Using rsync to push journal transaction files from one server to the hot backup server. Rsync script runs every 10 minutes and pushes the files . On the hot backup server these files are applied by a shell script. A purge job deletes files that have been applied from the hot backup server. Unfortunately rsync pushes missing files back from primary to the hot backup.
Is there a way to make rsync pickup where it left of instead of pushing all missing files. I understand that the inteded function of rsync is to sync up the dirs. May be there is a timestamp, flag .. that I can pass. There are times when it is necessary to sync up but that occurs once in a great while.
