rsync progress to log file


Hi,

I need to show the progress of rsync in a log file.

If I start rsync manually I can use below command to show the progress in a log file.

/local/rsync --rsync-path=/local/rsync -vt --stats --progress --compress -e /usr/bin/ssh -x -p 22 --partial-dir=/local/partial --block-size=5000 --temp-dir=/local/inbound --timeout=3600 /local/myFiles/file.zip www@www.dev.com:"/local/myFiles/file.zip" >> statusLog.log

Here I san see the status in statusLog.log

The problem is , my rsync command is created from java which will check for every 15 mins for new files. If it finds any new files, then creates a rsync job.

so I have added >> statusLog.log to rsync creation logic in java. but getting below error.

'rsync: link_stat "www@www.dev.com:"/local/myFiles/file.zip"" failed: No such file or directory (2)'
'rsync: link_stat " >> " failed: No such file or directory (2)'
'rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(892) [sender=2.6.8]'

what went wrong here?

Can anyone help me to log the progress in log file in this case.

Thanks.

I'm not sure that I can help but with this little of a clue as to what the actual question is I know I can't.

The Java application tries to access a file called ">>" and fails.

The >> redirector works from the shell, but will not necessarily work when used from inside an application, unless that application happens to be passing the entire argument verbatim to a shell, which is unlikely.

You will need to find another way to append data to a log file. You could try redirecting output from the parent (Java) process, but that might not be ideal if the Java app generates other output to stdout.

How about having the Java app call a shell script, and then start rsync with the appropriate redirection from there?
