Subject Using rsync to backup a couchdb database
Date Tue, 07 Apr 2009 06:49:47 GMT
In one of the recent podcasts, it was mentioned that to backup a couchdb 
database you can just copy the file.  I understand how this works with 
using cp as the important header blocks are in the start of the file and 
the rest is append only.

It was also stated that you could use rsync and I wasn't so sure.  Is it 
safe to assume that rsync starts at the start of the file and works it's 
way forward like a regular copy program would?  Not that familiar with 
the inner workings of it.
