Hi everyone -
So I am doing a massive restore of one drive to another via rSync. 4 terabytes of movie files, ISOs of installs, basically the whole archive of my home existence, including backups of my Windows machine.
There is no time-remaining estimate that I can find (or can someone point me to a command that would guesstimate that in an rSync?), but I am guessing at 70 megabytes a second it will probably take a day or so?
I would like to look in on the process from time to time. I can use the command "tail -f /var/log/rsync.log" via SSH to view the progress off-site.
If however I close the web browser window where I initiated the rSync, the process will keep going until it is done, but without as much detail as the web interface (megs per second, percentage progress per file, etc).
Just a dull list AFTER the file is done transferring. I understand why, but I would prefer the detailed output simply because I am trying to troubleshoot if an older Western Digital drive is getting "stuck" while rSync'ing.
Is this possible via a command line log check somewhere? Or is the detailed logging only done on the web interface?
Also, maybe if I initiate with SSH (then stop the process when I've seen enough progress, since it will continue where it left off the next time I run rSync) - what is the actual command line command that the web page is initiating to show the extra detail(s)?
I am using the "-v --progress" flag on the web page, if that's helpful. OMV v4.1.7 (Arrakis) running solid on an oDroix XU4.
Thanks very much!
