  1. DO NOT REPLY [Bug 5558] New: -- Stats Output

    https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5558

    Summary: -- Stats Output
    Product: rsync
    Version: 3.0.0
    Platform: All
    OS/Version: All
    Status: NEW
    Severity: enhancement
    Priority: P3
    Component: core
    AssignedTo: wayned@samba.org
    ReportedBy: bugs@crossroadz.com.au
    QAContact: rsync-qa@samba.org


    When using a multi line batch file to synch two systems the --stats output
    gives no indication of which line in the batch file the individual stats refer
    to

    It would be helpful and make the output easier to understand if the stats
    output printed the rsync command executed as the first line of any stats

    To place the above suggestion into context, I synchronise 8 directories on two
    machines daily using cron/rsync with the stats emailed to two administrators.

    The stats are great and assist in identifying problems but it is a pain
    remembering which group of stats belong to which directory.

    If it is considered a security problem having the full rsync command as the
    first line of the stats output perhaps the source or destination section of the
    command line could be utilised

    You can print the rsync command yourself using an "echo" in the batch file.

    Yes I can use an echo, but surely we are all looking to improve the product and
    in this case readability of the --stats output

    The current output is like having an answer to a question without the question

    We are not looking to bloat rsync with features easily implemented outside of
    it. Besides, the command is not a statistic. You're welcome to use a modified
    version of rsync that prints the command with --stats if you wish.

    With all due respect, a small improvement in readability surely could not be
    considered bloat, more like commonsense, and to suggest that --stats does not
    provide statistics is a surprising statement to say the least.

    Perhaps this could be linked to the other change (bud 2602) to improve stats
    which is more complex & has been outstanding since 2005

    I would also like to see some information on files/directories added/deleted

    I agree with Matt that this is not something that --stats should output. The
    person calling rsync is in a much better position to know how best to summarize
    what the copy is doing (e.g. echo the whole command, echo the destination,
    etc.) than rsync would be. Matt also meant that it is this extra output that
    you are requesting that is not a statistic, not the --stats option.

    Fair enough

    I have made the suggestion and it has been rejected

    I will however continue to regard the need to add a comment explaining the
    meaning of the statistics externally to rsync as a work around rather than a
    solution

    At the same time could I thank all who have made rsync such a great powerful
    tool
    their efforts are certainly appreciated
