Starting on the 14th (five days ago) the local chiara rsync backup of /cvs/cds to an external HDD has been failing:

caltech/c1/scripts/backup/rsync_chiara.backup.log:

Code 24 apparently means "Partial transfer due to vanished source files."

Manually running the backup command on chiara worked fine, returning a code of 0 (success), so we are backed up. For completeness, the command is controls@chiara: sudo rsync -av --delete --stats /home/cds/ /media/40mBackup

Are the summary page jobs moving files around at this time of day? If so, one of the two should be rescheduled to not conflict.
