rsync interval setting issue

    • OMV 2.x
    • rsync interval setting issue

      All,

      using OMV for several months I'm really happy with this solution running on my Microserver Gen8 with 4x 3TB WD Red and
      1x 30GB Kingston SSD.

      Only one minor issue I'm dealing with is setting of the interval in the rsync plugin (whereas the syncing itself is functional
      and everything else is working like expected):

      I would like to sync every hour and therefore enable "EVERY N hour" set to "1". All other time settings are set to " * ".
      Now OMV is syncing every single minute as to be verified in the corr. protocol. If I enable "EVERY N minute" set e.g. to "30"
      (again all other settings set to " * "), OMV is syncing every 30min as expected. Therefore I believe I understood the meaning
      of the settings correctly.

      Not a bone shaker using OMV but possibly easy to solve for the devs.

      Thank you very much in advance,

    • The scheduling is weird..

      If you set the "hours" to 1, and the Minutes to "0"... it will check once every hour at the top of the hour.

      If you set the hour to "1" and the Minutes to "5", IIRC, it will check every 5min for an hour (then start over at the next hour if I guess).

      By setting the hour to "1" and leaving the minute at *, it is just checking over and over.
      Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.

    • Thank you, Ness1602,

      issue was GUI related (rsync plugin). You need to set the switches to 1h 0min to get it synced
      every 60min on top of full hour as described by K0201. Whereas the 0min setting did the job.
      This was a bit confusing.

      cheers

    • How do I set the timing for once every day at a specific time in GUI, for instance 1 o'clock every night?
