Summary: rsync hangs when specifying a backup directory
Assignee: [hidden email] Reporter: [hidden email] QA Contact: [hidden email]
rsync hangs after working a few minutes without any error messages.
Since I have upgraded from Ubuntu 12.04.5 to Ubuntu 14.04 rsync comes in
version 3.1.0. And since the upgrade rsync hangs if I specify a backup
directory by the parameters "--backup --backup-dir=...".
Without the both backup parameters rsync works fine as before the upgrade!
So I tried the argument "--block-size" as described in
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10518#c8 although I think it is
another issue there because I don't have large vm files.
But if I specify 10 MB I get the error: "rsync: --block-size=10485760 is too
large (max: 131072)". And with 131072 rsync hangs too.
Now I tried the arguments "--protocol=30" and "--protocol=29", but rsync hangs
too - also in combination: "--block-size=131072 --protocol=29".
