hello, i do some backup via rsync/ssh and pull data from remote machine to local machine.
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 command rsync -avi --stats --delete --delete-excluded --inplace --numeric-ids --out-format=%-15i %-15b %-15l %-20M %n%L --timeout=900 --rsync-path=export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH;rsync --exclude-from=/backup/rsync.exclude.all --exclude-from=/zfspool/backup/myhost/rsync.exclude root@myhost:/ /zfspool/backup/myhost/backup 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. roland -- Please use reply-all for most replies to avoid omitting the mailing list.
