app-admin / clsync

Live sync tool based on inotify, written in GNU C

Official package sites : · ·

Clsync recursively watches for source directory and executes external program to sync the changes. Clsync is adapted to be used together with rsync. This utility is much more lightweight than competitors and supports such features as separate queue for big files, regex file filter, multi-threading and multicast notifing clsync instances on another nodes to prevent loop syncing. Clsync can use advanced features for isolation: capabilities, cgroups, namespaces, seccomp, code hardening.

Use Linux capabilities library to control privilege
Use cgroups to limit /dev access.
Enable clustering support (allows master-master clsync on multiple hosts). Not fully implemented yet.
Enable AF_UNIX control socket support.
Enable extra debug codepaths, like asserts and extra output. If you want to get meaningful backtraces see
Enable extra debugging. This will hurt performance badly. Be ready for tons of output.
Enable extra security checks. This will hurt performance.
Enable GIO for FS monitoring (glib based alternative to inotify interface, not recommended; if both are compiled, may be selected at runtime).
Activate default security enhancements for toolchain (gcc, glibc, binutils)
Allows to use spinlocks for short delays instead of mutexes, but only on SMP systems.
Enable inotify filesystem monitoring support
Add support for the mhash library
Enable namespaces isolation.
Enable seccomp (secure computing mode) to perform system call filtering at runtime to increase security of programs

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.
