rsync server boot/control script

Posted 12-25-2010 at 12:14 AM by catkin


I couldn't find one to suit anywhere so wrote this.

It is not really needed during shutdown because all it does is send SIGTERM to all the rsync server processes and the Linux shutdown process does that anyway. rsync server processes are well behaved and do terminate quickly in response to SIGTERM so there's no need to check that the processes have terminated and escalate to SIGKILL (which the Linux shutdown process does anyway).

Well, I've been thinking the last few days and I have gotten very fond of building a desktop computer myself. I've had such trouble with laptops -- and I've never owned a desktop. I mean, I spend most of my 'computer time' at home anyway, so why do I need a laptop so badly? I could work 1 or 2 months and sell my MacBook Pro and build a top of the line desktop for el-cheapo. I could make it look really cool, choose my own parts, feel a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment and learn something...
