NAME


lsyncd - a daemon to continuously synchronize directory trees

SYNOPSIS


config file
lsyncd [OPTIONS] CONFIG-FILE

default rsync behaviour
lsyncd [OPTIONS] -rsync SOURCEDIR TARGET ...

default rync+ssh behaviour (moves and deletes through ssh)
lsyncd [OPTIONS] -rsyncssh SOURCEDIR TARGETHOST TARGETDIR ...

default direct behaviour (local file operations/rsync)
lsyncd [OPTIONS] -direct SOURCEDIR TARGETDIR ...

DESCRIPTION


Lsyncd(1) watches local directory trees through an event monitor interface (inotify,
fsevents). It aggregates and combines events for a few seconds and then spawns one or more
processes to synchronize the changes. By default this is rsync(1). Lsyncd is thus a
light-weight asynchronous live mirror solution that is comparatively easy to install not
requiring new filesystems or block devices and does not hamper local filesystem
performance.

Rsync+ssh is an advanced action configuration that uses a SSH(1) to act file and directory
moves directly on the target instead of re-transmitting the move destination over the
wire.

Fine-grained customization can be achieved through the CONFIG-FILE. Custom action configs
can even be written from scratch in cascading layers ranging from shell scripts to code
written in the LUA(1) language. This way simplicity can be balanced with powerfulness. See
the online manual for details on the CONFIG-FILE
https://github.com/axkibe/lsyncd/wiki/Manual-to-Lsyncd-2.0.x .

Note that under normal configuration Lsyncd will delete pre-existing files in the target
directories that are not present in the respective source directory.

OPTIONS


-delay SECS
Overrides the default delay times.

-help
Show a help message.

-insist
Continues start up even if rsync cannot connect.

-log LEVEL
Controls which kind of events are logged. By default Lsyncd logs Normal and Error
Messages. -log scarce will make Lsyncd log Error messages only. -log all will log
all debug messages.

-log Category
Turns on a specific debug message. E.g. -log Exec will log all processes as they are
spawned.

-nodaemon
Lsyncd will not detach from the invoker and log as well to stdout/err.

-pidfile FILE
Lsyncd will write its process ID in FILE.

-runner FILE
Makes the Lsyncd core load the part of Lsyncd written in Lua from FILE.

-version
Writes version information and exits.

EXIT STATUS


0
Terminated on a TERM signal(7)

-1
Failure (syntax, unrecoverable error condition, internal failure)
