  1. rsync is effecting in the DC switch??

    hi guys, we are using rsycn without problem but today after some
    problems in one of the servers, the dc tech did find the rsync is
    effecting in the switch where they have the server connected
    broadcasting all the ports in the switch at the dc?????

    This is what the dc tech said:

    "It appears that your server is broadcasting to every port on the switch
    that you are connected to"

    Any idea why this is happening?

    Thanx in advance!

    im using version 3.0.3 protocol version 30

    and im running the command through shell in the destination server
    (backup server) to pull the files from the other servers:

    /usr/bin/rsync -rplogDtzH --stats --delete-during --timeout=500
    --exclude-from=/rsyncexcludedfiles --files-from=/rsyncincludedfiles -e
    ssh root@xx.xx.xx.xx:/ /backup/server

  2. Re: rsync is effecting in the DC switch??

    Hi Manuel,

    it is unlikely that rsync is causing your trouble as it operates on top
    of tcp (osi layer 4); broadcasts are special ethernet packets that are
    transmitted on osi layer 2. I think there might be another problem with
    your server or with your switch (is it hubbing?). I suggest you talk to
    your network admin again or repost this mail into a network list.


    Greetings

  3. Re: rsync is effecting in the DC switch??

    Thanx Ben,

    But i have really no idea why this is happening, the backup server
    crashed and the DC rebuild it with centos 5 (i guess had centos4
    before), after the rebuild did start this problem, could be something
    with the os version or distro?

    not sure where to start, the problem is not broadcasting...i mean, the
    dc tech told me the following, so the broadcasting is not something that
    "normal"....

    "is broadcasting to all servers connected to that switch right now. It
    is not normal for it to be abusing the network and flooding other
    servers with unwanted traffic."

    so any help or idea will be aprecciated.


    btw, here is the command that i was running in the backup server to pull
    the data from the other servers, not sure if it could have any
    problem...but i was running the same command without problem before the
    backup server rebuild.

    /usr/bin/rsync -rplogDtzH --stats --delete-during --timeout=500
    --exclude-from=/root/rsyncexcludedfiles
    --files-from=/root/rsyncincludedfiles -e ssh root@xx.xx.xx.xx:/
    /backup4/server8


    Thanx in advance!

  4. Re: rsync is effecting in the DC switch??

    Hi Manuel,

    at least, this is not a common problem. I'd use tcpdump to see what is
    really happening on your network card; if possible also run tcpdump on
    the receiving machines. This tells you exactly what traffic is on the
    network. If there are any unrequested broadcasts, check the ethernet
    address (mac address) of the packets. You should only receive valid
    broadcasts and traffic that is directed to your server.
    If you receive unicast traffic that is directed to other hosts than
    yours, it is a switching problem. I'd suggest rebooting the switch and
    if possible, upgrading the firmware to the latest release. I expect that
    you have already rebooted the centos box?

    Hi Ben and Chuck, thank you very much for the help, looks like finally
    was a problem in the switch at the datacenter.

    Thank you!
