Rsync Vault Manager is an archive manager that uses rsync to manage backups of multiple clients across multiple logical partitions (vaults).

Rsync Vault Manager has some features that some other rsync-based backup schemes lack, such as being written in C++, needing no scripts or other programs than rsync and any binaries on which rsync depends (such as SSH), the ability to manage multiple instances of rsync connections to separate clients in parallel, the ability to use multiple logical partitions (vaults) in a configurable fashion for purporses of redundancy and added reliability, and the use of hard links for files that have not changed from one archive to the next.

Rsync Vault Manager was developed on an x86 platform using Linux RedHat 9.0 w/ GCC 3.2.2 and an UltraSPARC platform using Solaris 8 w/ GCC 2.95.5.

Rsync Vault Manager uses GNU autoconf/automake scripts for compilation and installation.

What's New in This Release:
Minor bugs fixed: a wildcard resolution bug, incorrect archive directory names, empty job IDs in reports, and this release checks that a vault is writable before running rsync.
A vault locking option prevents multiple instances of rvm from using the same vault, there is a separate error logging level to be used when retrying an rsync command, and there is an option to delete old log files along with old archives.
