I have written script to download a directory from remote machine which
contains the always the updated data. I want to download that directory
onto my local machine periodically with --link-dest option to my old
I have automated the script using " expect scripting"
Following script I have written:
$> cat ravi.ex
set LDEST [lindex $argv 0] ## for link-dest option
set SRC [lindex $argv 1]## for source on remote m/c
set DEST [lindex $argv 2]## for dest on local m/c
eval exp_spawn rsync -avz --stats --progress --partial $LDEST $SRC $DEST
set retVal [exp_wait]
set pid [lindex $retVal 0]
set spawn_id [lindex $retVal 1]
set os_error [lindex $retVal 2]
set exit_status [lindex $retVal 3]
exit $exit_status ## returning the exit status of the rsync command.
When I run the script I get the following output and it hangs indefinitely.
"user at remotemachine:/Build58/source/"
exp_spawn rsync -avz --stats --progress --partial
--link-dest=/Build56/source/ user at remotemachine:/Build58/source/ ./source/
user at remotemachine's password:
receiving file list ...
(There are lot more files to be counted )Actually I have millions of files
inside the directory.
What might be the problem ? Any guess??
It hangs at different counts at different run. some times 19300 OR 20100
Thanks for any help.
