Suppose we have about 1000 files at location 'A' & 500 files at location 'B'
& we want them to be transmitted to each other (not exactly synchronizing
two location). RSYNC can do that, no issues on that. But i have few
My first query:
1. Can we make some sort of queuing procedure alongwith or through RSYNC.
Like in which we can provide priorities to particular JOBs in a queue. Even
if we are not able to make a seperate system for queuing, Is there a way to
change the priorities for my Jobs ( Like by default, jobs are processed
alphabeticaly or numerically & that is the default priority order).
But what if i have been left with another 600 files to transmit & i want
last 100 to come at top of this queue or i want these last 100 jobs to be
transmitted on urgent priority. How to assign priorities to jobs.
2. Is there a way to confirm online(not through log files) what exactly has
been transmitted & what is left to be transmitted. (For example we have the
--progress & -vvv verbosity options for telling me what exactly is happening
at this moment)
3. Also i wanted to know , is it possible for RSYNC to transmit more than 1
files at a same time ?
Please Oblige me with your suggestions.
