Subject: [gentoo-mirrors] questions on rsync mirror operation
Date: Mon, 03 May 2010 21:03:27
Message-Id: 4BDF314F.1020800@gentoo.org
Hello,


even after reading [1] I keep wondering what happens if a user syncs
against our Gentoo e.V. rsync1 mirror while that one is syncing itself
against the master server.  With bad luck a user may end up with mixed
files from before and after the sync (i.e. an inconsistent, possibly
broken tree), or not?

If so what would be a good way to prevent this?

How bad would shutting rsyncd down for the moment and bringing it back
up after be?  Is there a cleaner solution to this?

Thanks in advance,



Sebastian
