Rsync Error Code 22


I'm duplicating backups to a secondary location and I got this: "rsync error: error allocating core memory buffers (code 22) at io.c(600) [sender=3.0.6[/B]]".


I don't do this automatically so I used root account to perform this task. Any suggested fix on this one? 

Should I increase ram? Also, whose fault is this, the remote location or the local?


Thank you.



Update:: nope, not a ram issue, i forgot i was monitoring my ram and just checked the log files.

Well it has been eons since I mucked with this rsync flag.   Basically it doesn't do a full compare of the local and remote files all at once.  It does it in chunks.    I use that flag all the time on small RAM servers where rsync throws all sorts of RAM related issues that are hard to debug.

Give it a spin and let me know if that helps.
