traverses directories of $host and $share to created a unified place for rsync backups

for host in *; do { if [ -d $host ]; then { cd ${host}; for share in *; do { if [ -d $share ]; then { cd $share; rsync -av --delete rsyncuser@$host::$share . 2>../$share.err 1>../$share.log; cd ..; }; fi; }; done; cd ..; }; fi; }; done;
traverses e.g. "/data/myhost1.com/myrsyncshare"; logs stderr and stdout. useful with cron.

  • update the output of rsync after completing a file but don't create newlines, just overwrite the last line, this looks a lot better in scripts where you do want to see a progress-indicator, but not the lengthy logs this option is available since rsync 3.1.0 Show Sample Output

  • It can resume a failed secure copy ( usefull when you transfer big files like db dumps through vpn ) using rsync. It requires rsync installed in both hosts. rsync --partial --progress --rsh=ssh $file_source $user@$host:$destination_file local -> remote or rsync --partial --progress --rsh=ssh $user@$host:$remote_file $destination_file remote -> local

  • If you have lots of remote hosts sitting "behind" an ssh proxy host, then there is a special-case use of "rsynch" that allows one to easily copy directories and files across the ssh proxy host, without having to do two explicit copies: the '-e' option allows for a replacement "rsh" command. We use this option to specify an "ssh" tunnel command, with the '-A' option that causes authentication agent requests to be forwarded back to the local host. If you have ssh set up correctly, the above command can be done without any passwords being entered.
