- The Rsync Algorithm – The Rsync Algorithm
21 July, 2000
Dr. Andrew Tridgell
This paper describes the rsync algorithm, which provides a nice way to remotely update files over a high latency, low bandwidth link. The paper itself concentrates on the core algorithm, giving the basic mathematical justifications and characterising the problem. In my presentation at OLS I will concentrate on some of the practical applications of the rsync algorithm, such as the rsync tool and recent work on getting the rsync algorithm into a variety of everyday protocols, such as CVS and HTTP.
