found a new bug: "could not make way for new symlink: path/to/symlink" when symlink has replaced folder at source

Hello,

I think this should be reported on bugzilla. 
Can someone do that for me?
I read these error messages:

"cannot delete non-empty directory: path/to/dir
could not make way for new symlink: path/to/dir" (on last , dir is a symlink)

upon

rsync -a --backup --backup-dir=../part.inc/06 --links --partial-dir=.rsync.part --partial
--progress --log-file=/mnt/x/Documents/rsync.a.log /mnt/part/ /mnt/s/bk/part/

The folder was not moved to the backup-dir, like it should have been.

rsync v3.0.9
issue not found on changelogs since
nor on bugzilla 

Regards,
Eduard

Transfering extended attributes in the "system" namespace

Dear all,

nfs4-ACLs are exposed to userspace as an extended attribute 
"system.nfs4_acl" in Linux.

I need to copy these ACLs from one NFS-Server to another. I have found 
that in xattrs.c rsync filters all extended attributes from the 
namespace "system" and does not transfer them.

Question 1: Is it reasonably save to patch rsync and transfer them 
anyways? I have tried it, it works. :-)

Question 2: If is is reasonable and save, is there interest in a patch 
to create a option to not ignore the "system" namespace?

Regards,
Philipp

[Bug 10748] New: 3.1.0 and 3.1.1 create all dirs on target even with --prune-empty-dirs

Unfortunately, it's creating *ALL* of the dirs on the source,
changed or not.

After the above was run, the "diffdir" contained 560515 dirs,
of which 386220 were empty. Deleting them freed up almost

cygwin version of rsync has lost it's ext-attr copy ability

I don't know the reasons why, but for some reason the cygwin version of
rsync has lost the extattr copy ability (as shown by this:

Does anyone know why they'd be turned off now when they've worked
for many years?

I asked on the cygwin list, but no one replied when I asked
why and if it could be respun with them working again.

Weird -- that's why I was wondering if anyone here knew anything.

Concern: rsync failing to find some attributes in a file transfer?

I have a regular script I run to make static "snapshots" of my home
file system, with each being all the files that changed in the past 24 
hours.

I just moved my home partition to a new harddisk w/more space.

I ran the util and have gotten odd results each time I ran it.

This one bothers me... as I'm not sure why the attrs would be missing.

How can the names be transfered but no content?  Is that possible?

Ideas?

Thanks!

rsync 3.1.0/3.1.1 incompatible with 2.5.7

I develop GNU Parallel. GNU Parallel uses rsync to transfer files. GNU
Parallel has a design goal of not requiring the users to change their
setup to be able to use GNU Parallel. In other words: If you are
called as a consultant to work on a Centos3 server untouched since
2007, then you can expect even the newest version of GNU Parallel will
work flawlessly.

Centos3 has rsync 2.5.7 installed.

On my development machine I have so far been using rsync prior to
3.1.0 and there has been no hiccups: Rsync has worked flawlessly
against Centos3.

Yesterday I upgraded my development machine, which also upgraded rsync to 3.1.0.

This breaks rsync against Centos3. I get the following error:

rsync-3.1.0     protocol version mismatch - is your shell clean?
rsync-3.1.0     (see the rsync man page for an explanation)
rsync-3.1.0     rsync error: protocol incompatibility (code 2) at compat.c(62)
rsync-3.1.0     rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes
received so far) [sender]
rsync-3.1.0     rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code
12) at io.c(226) [sender=3.1.0]

This is also the case for 3.1.1:

rsync-3.1.1     protocol version mismatch - is your shell clean?
rsync-3.1.1     (see the rsync man page for an explanation)
rsync-3.1.1     rsync error: protocol incompatibility (code 2) at compat.c(62)

[Bug 10738] New: report --stats output when termination signal arrives (fwd)

Folks,

I would find the output of -stats information to be useful when
rsync fails.

Typically, we use rsync to do backups, and if an rsync fails, we'd like
to know how much data has been transferred in the failed run, to report
on our internal web page for the backups, and to make estimates of how
much work a resumed run might have to do.

At present, we have no idea.

Thanks

Regards

Rob.

[Bug 10738] New: report --stats output when termination signal arrives

           Summary: report --stats output when termination signal arrives
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.9
          Platform: x64
        OS/Version: Linux

        ReportedBy: mark.bugzilla <at> winksmith.com
         QAContact: rsync-qa <at> samba.org

i am using Ubuntu 12.04.4LTS.  The use case I have is to run an rsync during
the hours of 1am to 7am.  I use the timeout(1) program for this purpose:

    timeout -s ALRM 6h rsync --stats -av /source /destination

With the above usage, rsync receives a SIGALRM signal after 6h of running. 
when this happens, it just terminates with no further output.

I would find it useful to display the current --stats output when the signal
arrives.  This signal may SIGINT, SIGTERM, or SIGALRM, but in my case, I would
really like SIGALRM to be handled at the very least.  I can definitely see a
user wanting to see stats even when they type ^C on the terminal though
(SIGINT).

Adjusting transfer rate on the fly

Hello,

Does anyone know if it is possible to adjust the value of --bwlimt= on
the fly using gdb or the like? I've adjusted mysql max_connections in
the past with gdb and was curious if I would be able to make
adjustments to rsync in a similar fashion.

I am very well aware I can stop it and start it again with a new
value. That is not what I'm after here.

Regards,
