hi guys, we are using rsycn without problem but today after some 
problems in one of the servers, the dc tech did find the rsync is 
effecting in the switch where they have the server connected 
broadcasting all the ports in the switch at the dc?????

This is what the dc tech said:

"It appears that your server is broadcasting to every port on the switch 
that you are connected to"

Any idea why this is happening?

Thanx in advance!

im using version 3.0.3  protocol version 30

and im running the command through shell in the destination server 
(backup server) to pull the files from the other servers:

/usr/bin/rsync -rplogDtzH --stats --delete-during --timeout=500 
--exclude-from=/rsyncexcludedfiles --files-from=/rsyncincludedfiles -e 
ssh root at xx.xx.xx.xx:/ /backup/server
