Your subject says "compare", but your question says "synchronize".  Which is it?

To synchronize, do

rsync -a --delete /export/home/ server2:/export/home

to compare, do

rsync -na --delete /export/home/ server2:/export/home

I have put rsync command to run everynight at 2AM and kill it at 8AM, and i wanted to check how much it has got synchronized between the two servers. So i thought i need to compare both the directories to see how much data got synchronized.

Add -v and --stats to get more details, eg:

rsync -av --stats --delete /export/home server2:/export/home
