Tweaking rsync logs
 
Good morning All, I'm new to posting here but I've found the forum a great place for answers over the years!
I use rsync to incrementally back up a large amount of data (total size about 5TB) each night and it works brilliantly.
I'd like to be able to see the file sizes and modify dates in the rsync logs, is this possible?

Many thanks,

James

In the rsyncd.conf file, and under the "log format" parameter, you can add "%l" for length of the file in bytes and "%M" for the last-modified time of the file. Check the man page for full info.

Interesting, I don't have an rsyncd.conf!
However it works if I put it in the command line as log-file-format.

Many thanks for your help.

James.
