I assume you're using an rsync daemon, otherwise you could just use
"ssh host tail -f file" or similar.  If data is always being appended,
see the --append option for a modern rsync (e.g. at least 3.x) which
will just grab the most recent data and tack it onto the end of the
local copy of the file.
