I've read the manpage for rsync and I don't believe this capability exists, but I wanted to confirm with someone who has extensive experience with rsync to make sure I'm not missing something (I'm on the initial setup of rsync).
Here is the situation: I two servers (A and B). I am going to setup a cron job that moves files from a directory on A to a directory on B. I have that working as expected. However, once those files are synced to directory B, I am going to moving those files to multiple other directories after renaming them.
From what I understand, rsync determines what to sync by comparing source and destination directories (timestamps, sizes, etc.). Are there any flags to use with rsync where it somehow uses a log of synced files so it knows that it already synced that file, even if it isn't there on the destination anymore?
I have an inclination this is not within rsync capabilities, but I wanted to ask. Thank you!
EDIT: I know somewhere in the manpage it specifies that you output runs to log file. Could that be referenced somehow?
