rsync showing wrong output


Iam comparing 2 filesystem using the below command.


rsync -navrz --exclude=logs/* /opt/otm/ glrrd@105.78.7.100:/opt/otm/


The output showing the files which are same in size and timestamp that are to be sync.

Iam using rsync 2.6.3 version so i dont have itemize changes option to debug the problem.

Is there anyway i can find the how rsync is finding the difference between the 2 filesytem

Ex: filesystem1


-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 39132 Nov 26 2009 FinJ-code_2003-10-22_12h17_CEST+0200.jar
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 39132 Nov 26 2009 finj.jar
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 954987 Nov 26 2009 jakarta-taglibs-standard-1.1.2.zip
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 4061606 Nov 26 2009 jaxen-1.1.1.zip
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 14022975 Nov 26 2009 openmap-4.5.4.zip
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 387328 Nov 26 2009 standard-1.1.2-patched-jaxen-1.1.jar
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 1394659 Nov 26 2009 struts-1.2.7-lib.zip
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 5736238 Nov 26 2009 velocity-1.4.zip


Filesystem 2;

-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 39132 Nov 26 2009 FinJ-code_2003-10-22_12h17_CEST+0200.jar
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 39132 Nov 26 2009 finj.jar
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 954987 Nov 26 2009 jakarta-taglibs-standard-1.1.2.zip
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 4061606 Nov 26 2009 jaxen-1.1.1.zip
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 14022975 Nov 26 2009 openmap-4.5.4.zip
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 387328 Nov 26 2009 standard-1.1.2-patched-jaxen-1.1.jar
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 1394659 Nov 26 2009 struts-1.2.7-lib.zip
-rw-rw-r-- 1 glog glog 5736238 Nov 26 2009 velocity-1.4.zip

When iam running the rsync from filesytem1 it is showing to sync all the file in filesystem1 to filesystem2 when both the files looks same in size and timestamp

I don't understand what

In few cases,It showing the files to rsync whic are same in size and timestamp.
means.

wsdl4j-bin-1.4.zip probably already existed on filesystem2, and you are not passing any of the --delete options to rsync, so I don't see any unexpected behavior here.

delete will delete files that don't exist on the sending side.

Suppose if the same file is present in both the filesystems then it should not copy the same file to the receiving file system.


File which are same in size and timestamp.

Don't use -v as option, it will list all files. Without it you will get a list of intended changes in the dry run.

Nevertheless you could compile a more recent rsync from scratch and put it in your ~/local/rsync-3.0.7 or similar.
