I would like to backup a directory from my production server to a backup server using rsync.
My current solution:
- tar directory
- on production server send to remote server via rsync
My Problem with this solution: there is not enough space to create the tar file + it needs to much resources while the tar is created. It should make as less as possible impact on the production server resources.
I would like to send the files into a tar file on the remote server. I simply could send the files and tar them on the backup server, but in my point of view, this would not be a good solution.
