Description Stefan Neufeind 2005-10-04 17:44:39 UTC

Description of problem:
The problem seems to occur when transfering "a lot of" new files. (Sorry, I can't give any more detailed numbers). When rsync hangs, it's possible to kill it and start again - rsync will start from the point where it left and continue further - possibly stopping again. Doing this in a cycle you can get rsync to finally run through smooth. (But for the machines here were problems occur, they re-appear after 24 hours of work on those machines.)

In this case rsync is running through an stunnel on a LAN - but a colleague reported that it even occurs without stunnel involved.

This has been encountered with clients running on FC3, FC4 and FC4 with rsync-package from FC5(development).

Backtraces and further information can also be found at:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Find a machine which has run for a while (maybe created a specific number of new files or so?!?)
3.See it hang

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

From my side please close. We've stayed on the RedHat-track, but meanwhile
migrated to CentOS - so I can't test this anymore.

Comment 3 Simo Sorce 2007-08-10 16:45:34 UTC
I am closing this, it is probably fixed in later releases, if not and you can
provide more info on how to reproduce it, reopen please.
