How do I view my Eclipse rsync backup logs on Linux?

The standard tape backup script keeps a number of log files that are accessible to the system administrator. To view the log files, log into your server as root and run the following commands. You may also configure the backup script to send an email every time the backup is run.

/tmp/snapsave.log contains the output from the last successful rsync backup

more /tmp/snapsave.log

The log for a successful rsync backup will show output similar to the following:

Copy done - status=0

Number of files: 2248894
Number of files transferred: 6519
Total file size: 181.30G bytes
Total transferred file size: 135.72G bytes
Literal data: 135.72G bytes
Matched data: 0 bytes
File list size: 82.91M
File list generation time: 0.001 seconds
File list transfer time: 0.000 seconds
Total bytes sent: 135.82G
Total bytes received: 152.13K

sent 135.82G bytes  received 152.13K bytes  14.44M bytes/sec
total size is 181.30G  speedup is 1.33

/tmp/snapsave.rsync-local.log contains the files that were backed up or updated by rsync backup operation

/tmp/snapsave.log logs database suspension and snapshot operations:

less /tmp/snapsave.log

The following log file shows a successful backup and details the database and snapshot operations taking place. This is very useful for troubleshooting backup issues.
