I have remote stations that collect data from sensors (ARM Debian) and transfers sets of data (about 1.1 MB) every 15 minutes (server is full Debian). On one station GSM reception is poor and standard scp transfers are often broken and have to be started from beginning.
Now I'm trying rsync. On station I invoked:
rsync --partial --remove-source-files --progress --rsh=ssh -z FILE root@SERVER:/DIR/
After several minutes file appeared on server. (is it possible to see current transfer status on receiving server - file appeared when transfer was completed?)
How to resume transfer when it's broken? If file is not deleted transfer was not completed?
