Sync 1.2.1 Release Notes

Version 1.2.1
Created: February 22, 2012
What’s New
  • Windows support
  • Multiple sync sessions have their own databases under a folder hierarchy, easier management
  • Support for cluster, supports named location for a shared db across nodes
  • Performance improvements for smaller files / scanning of file system, finding small differences in very very large file systems (2-3X faster for very lare sets of very small files)
  • Hard links on linux
  • Disable check sum calculation for high speed transfers (for archive)
  • Create directory for unidirectional sync if directory does not exist
  • Async status (mgmt app) allows graceful shutdown of sync session
  • Robustness, around retry in case of network or io failures (add PID to log file)
  • New "no checksum" option for maximum speed on underperforming storage systems

Fixed Issues
  • Various bug fixes in include / exclude, more rsync compatibility

Known Issues
  • The exit value from asyncadmin -T is not meaninful on Windows XP and 2003 (#12298)
  • If files contain "\" or new line, async will try to transfer but fail, causing the internal transfer queue to become full and the synchronization to stall (or hang after all the other files have completed.) (#13761)
  • Sync never completes when a directory is renamed during a transfer. (#13645)
  • Sync source or destination directories with unicode pathnames are not supported. Support will be added in an upcoming release. (#13825, #13826, #13827)
