    SLIGHTLY OFFTOPIC: rsync on esxi

    tozjerimiah Lurker


      Wondering if anyone know of limits & how to get round them on busybox.

      I statically compiled the latest rsync (3.1.1) & can successfully execute the command on my esxi 5.5 server. I am getting the following error from rsync however:

      ERROR: out of memory in receive_sums [sender]
      rsync error: error allocating core memory buffers (code 22) at util2.c(102) [sender=3.1.1]
      rsync: [generator] write error: Broken pipe (32)

      Do you know how I could go about making this work? The command I am using is:

      rsync -vrltH --delete -pgo --stats -S -D --numeric-ids --bwlimit=50 -A -X --exclude-from=/home/files/porchefiles/2014.08.03-08.58.10/exclude --link-des│······t=/home/files/porchefiles/2014.08.02-21.48.13/tree hq.porchecars.com:/home/ /home/files/porchefiles/2014.08.03-08.58.10/tree

      I'm obviously using rsync to compare a vm snapshot on my esxi host with a later snapshot from that host which is off site, the transport being residential broadband.

      Both sender & receiver are on 3.1.1.
