I have setup a rsync cron job to sync some data from my server to my local box, but it is alot of data. Since all this is being done via cron jobs, the process runs in the background, but I would like to be able to track its progress.
How do I track the progress of this cron job while rsync syncs in the background?
I have already implemented -v option and -P option, but it only shows when the file was completed in the log file. The -P option only shows up when you run it at the terminal, not as a cron job. I need a way to peering into the process itself if the -v -P isn't giving me up to the second information of the remaining bytes of the file(s) being transferred in the log file.
