Where can I get RSYNC utility for HP Unix 11.23 ?

Hi,


Please tell me where I can get a free download of the RSYNC utility for HP Unix 11.23 ?

Can I use RSYNC to fast update an Oracle Database from one server to another at a remote site as a substitute to Replication ?


Regards,
Berag

well, if the database uses raw volumes, then no.

if your db is files on a filesystem, then maybe.....

you'd have to have both the source and destination DBs down for the duration of the sync, so "real time" isn't going to be an option, but if you can live with the downtime, and just need a daily snapshot, it might, just possibly work. No guarantees tho..

and how long it takes to sync would be dependent on the structure of the files and your change rates. I'd expect b-trees w/ lots of change activity to take a lot longer than say a heap table

Thanks very much for your replies.

Does anyone know of any alternative better than rsync ?

Thanks.

It depends how often you want to "replicate" to the remote site. If you need almost live replication, any solution you consider is expensive, oracle replication (dataguard), storage based replication, storage snapshots and server (filesystem) snapshots.

You need to consider:

How "remote" is the "remote" site?

What kind of link / bandwidth capacity is available to "remote" site?

And, how close to "real-time" does the replica have to be?

Give "fast" & "update" there probably isn't going to be a low-cost substitute for DataGuard

Hi,


Thanks for all your replies.

I want to be using rsync to backup to, to replicate to, to update to and to synchronize oracle databases and other types of data to a remote site.

What is the full command line with the full options ?

Re: Where can I get RSYNC utility for HP Unix 11.23 ?


After installing rsync, whenever I try running /usr/local/bin/rsync on any of my machines, it gives me :

# find / -name rsync
/usr/local/bin/rsync
/usr/local/doc/rsync
/var/adm/sw/products/rsync
# /usr/local/bin/rsync
/usr/lib/hpux32/dld.so: Unable to find library 'libpopt.so'.
Killed
#

Please help resolve this.

Maybe you need to install Run-time dependencies: gettext libiconv popt as the the download site mentioned. I believe you can find all of them in the same website.
