Dear experts -

          Currently I am running a rsync command like the following

rsync -avp /backup/tbs/ akp007@172.*.*.*:/backup/tbs  &

what's happening was the command is dying after some time. is there a way to continuously run it in the background ?  I am on Solaris 10

Regards

Your command isn't really "dying", instead it's coming to a regular end as soon as there is nothing left to be transferred. There's no way to keep rsync from behaving like this.

Generally, among other good options for keeping local and remote directories in sync are "lsyncd" or "drbd", but since you're on Solaris they won't work for you.

I'd suggest restarting  the synchronization regularly, either by means of a looping script or by means of a cronjob.

A cronjob will require some additional logic in order to avoid running several rsync processes in parallel.
