It was pointed out that this information is in the --itemize-changes parameter in the man page.

I looked at the man page but missed this part. I guess it was the forest for the trees.

Thanks and it is resolved.


USING: rsync  version 3.0.6  protocol version 30 on a Sun Solaris 10 x86. This is a precompiled version from opencsw.

/opt/csw/bin/rsync -n -axzH -v --delete-after --log-file=$RSYNCOUTPUT/export_-${DAILYDT}X --rsync-path=/opt/csw/bin/rsync -e "ssh -i /root/.ssh/id_hertz" --max-delete=100  /export/.zfs/snapshot/$DAILYDT/        hertz3:/zvol/backup/gauss/export 

When I added the --log-file= line I get log file messages like

I am trying to find information on the string of character that follow the PID. I have search high ad low with now luck.

I have looked in the rsyncd.conf file but what is talked about log-format does not seem to give the information that I am looking for.

Can someone point me to a documentation that will give me the information.
