I have an rsync based backup process which uses rsyncd on the source,
to backup to a directory on the client.
I have rsync version 3.1.2 on the client and 2.6.8 on the source host
The rysnc command I use is;
/usr/bin/rsync -aHzS --partial --numeric-ids --delete --timeout=3600 \
The rsync log on the client shows the following;
2017/05/01 04:19:41  receiving file list
2017/05/01 04:20:03  *deleting bin/.zcat.19441
2017/05/01 04:20:03  *deleting bin/.gzip.19441
Is this normal, or is there some configuration I am missing ?
