PIrsyncD new version: 20100219

PIrsyncD stands for: Python Inotify Rsync Daemon.

This is an attempt of writing a daemon to watch a directory for kernel’s inotify events and then execute an rsync command to synchronize two different directories (local or remote). This is a poor man’s mirroring or an alternative (not so) real data replication mechanism and it is based on Pyinotify.


From ChangeLog:

  • Added variable to define the rsync version (parameter: –rsync_v2)
  • Rewrite of INSTALL file (to meet better the minimal requirements)
  • Checking of the destination directory is now disabled when –host is set.
  • rsync append functionality was added.
  • Better examples were provided.

All the above were suggested by Jeff Templon < templon AT nikhef DOT nl >
