rsync "building file list"?

i'm using rsync 3.0.0 and getting the following output when i execute my command:

building file list ... done

sent 74751 bytes received 12 bytes 149526.00 bytes/sec
total size is 254705066 speedup is 3406.83

huh? what does "building file list" mean? no files are being transferred. can someone please explain what's going on.

thanks in advance

rsync needs to determine which files have changed and need to be transferred, hence the list.

so, what needs to be in the command to actually transfer the files? my command is below:

rsync -airvu --delete-after --exclude=cgi-bin --exclude=maintenance-mode --exclude=easy-admin-color-schemes --exclude=wp-config.php /home/ssisbico/public_html/testblog /home/ssisbico/public_html
