rsync reliablility issue
I know the list hates rsync questions/problems ( is there is a better list
for this?) but...
I have been having somewhat aqrbitrary but continued reliability issues with
rsync, I've been trying to use rsync to synchronize a fairly large number
of machines from a central server. Somewhat arbitrarily ( but often ) in the
midst of copying files I either terminate with the following:
rsync: error writing 68 unbuffered bytes - exiting: Connection reset by peer
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(463)
rsync: error writing 7161 unbuffered bytes - exiting: Connection reset by
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at
it hangs on one file until the i/o time_out value I have set kicks in..
That file never gets transfered, but the next time it transfers that file
fine and hangs in a different place or not at all.....
It the first case, the first error line is ALWAYS writing 68 bytes
the third line byte count changes...
I run multiple rsyncs concurently from a master server, but have seen the
same beahviour even when doing one rsync at a time.
I did find that removing Terminal Services (

reliablity, but I still have around a 25% faliure rate..
