Dirvish

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/17

I think it was Thomas Mueller pointing to this, but I’m not sure as I found it in a browser tab from long ago: [WayBack] Welcome to Dirvish

Dirvish is a fast, disk based, rotating network backup system.

With dirvish you can maintain a set of complete images of your filesystems with unattended creation and expiration. A dirvish backup vault is like a time machine for your data.

Dirvish was originally created by jw schultz .

Before starting, I want to read these:

rsync z-lib compression segmentation fault? WTF!

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/07/27

Not sure why without the -z compression switch this succeeds:

# rsync -avloz /var/lib/named/master/ /etc/named/master/
sending incremental file list
pluimers.com
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
# rsync -avlo /var/lib/named/master/ /etc/named/master/
sending incremental file list
pluimers.com
pluimers.com.20161231

sent 10,495 bytes  received 74 bytes  21,138.00 bytes/sec
total size is 132,231  speedup is 12.51
# rsync -avloz /var/lib/named/master/ /etc/named/master/
sending incremental file list

rsync as diff – compare files in two directory on remote server using unix – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/03/01

Too bad the accepted answer forgets about deleted files.

Use one of these to compare (but not sync) two directory trees.

For size-only comparision:

rsync -n -avr --size-only --delete /abc/home/sample1/ server2:/abc/home/sample2/

If you want to compare both contents and size:

rsync -n -avrc --delete /abc/home/sample1/ server2:/abc/home/sample2/

rsync: Time Machine for every Unix out there – IMHO

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/29

Interesting: Time Machine for every Unix out there – IMHO.

But be careful with the hardlinks, as making a backup of the backup might fail:
