       lsyncd - a daemon to continuously synchronize directory trees


       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 ...


       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

       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

       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 .

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


       -delay SECS
           Overrides the default delay times.

           Show a help message.

           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

           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.

           Writes version information and exits.


           Terminated by Signal (143 by TERM)

           Failure (syntax, unrecoverable error condition, internal failure)
