With reference to the mail subjected : IO Timeout Error in file less than 3 MB,
thanks to Wayne Davison and Tony for having suggested the changes to be done.
I have moved to rsync version 2.6.6 from the 2.4 series.
As per my project requirement, i need to know the checksum of the file being synced.
For this purpose i tried debugging the code. I understand that rsync breaks the entire file
into blocks and calculates checksum for each block.
>From the source code, i have come across a function
void file_checksum(char *fname,char *sum,OFF_T size) where i understood that checksum is calculated.
Is there a way where i can get the checksum of the entire file at once ?
Is what i understood about checksum right ?
Can anybody please help me in this issue ?
Thanks in Advance.
