How to get log file for rsync operation? Does rsync also delete remote files?
I am planning to use rsync for a daily backup to a remote backup server.
When I read the rsync manual it does not become clear on how to write a log file for the rsync operation.
I am missing options like:
rsync ..... -logfile=\home\backup\rsync.log -logmode=append ......
Did I miss these options?
I want to write (append !!) to the log file:
- Which files were transferred
- When the rsync operation took place
- How much bytes were transferred (total sum) in the rsync operation
How can I get such a log file otherwise?
BTW: Does rsync delete remote files (from previous rsync operations) if they are not existing
any more on the source system ?
