Regarding the recommendation:

> It has a gui already. No need to reinvent the wheel.
I went over the FAQ and the documentation for Delta Copy. Delta
Copy does not provide any means to continually monitor an on-going
rsync process. The most they do is:
| Question: What type of logging is available in DeltaCopy
| Answer: Besides the logging options available in Rsync,
| DeltaCopy provides two additional logs:
| deltac.log - available on DeltaCopy client
| DeltaService.log - available on DeltaCopy server
| deltac.log file contains information about the DeltaCopy
| client. It logs a message when a profile is run and
| notifications emails are sent to the user.
| DeltaService.log is available where DeltaCopy server is
| installed and contains messages when service is started or
| It is important to know that rsync supports additional logging
| that can be configured by specifying additional parameters
| either on DeltaCopy client or server. Please refer to rsync
| documentation for more information about logging options
| available for rsync.
| When rsync.exe is executed in the back-ground by DeltaCopy, it
| generates status messages which are sent to standard output.
| DeltaCopy captures these messages and sends them via email.
Observe that Delta Copy relies on rsync itself to provide insight
into the status of the on-going transaction.
So the question remains: In regard to output, rsync has the
a) -v option with various levels of verbosity
d) messages rsync prints to stdout
e) messages rsync prints to stderr.
Where can one find an explanation of the format, content
and interpretation of the outputs (a-e)?
