i do some backup via rsync/ssh and pull data from remote machine to
whenever on remote machine there is some network attached subdir getting
"stuck" (i.e. read/write is blocking, eg. by suspended zfs pool because
of error), rsync backup also hangs forever.
i wonder what's the purpose of "--timeout" then.
local machine: 3.1.2
remote machine: 3.2.3
rsync -avi --stats --delete --delete-excluded --inplace --numeric-ids
--out-format=%-15i %-15b %-15l %-20M %n%L --timeout=900
--exclude-from=/zfspool/backup/myhost/rsync.exclude root at myhost:/
what can i do to make this more robust ?
rsync should not hang, as it's getting started via script and the hang
blocks backup of other hosts.
