Hi,

I run rsync jobs that backs up data to a mounted NAS drive.

The rsync job commands looks like this:

#!/bin/bash
#Author XXXXX
#Version 1.0
rsync -rav root@192.168.#.##::nss/DATA /media/nss/XXXXXX
rsync -rav root@192.168.#.##::nss/DATA /media/nss/XXXXXX
rsync -rav root@192.168.#.##::nss/ARCHIVE /media/nss/XXXXXX
rsync -rav root@192.168.#.##::nss/ARCHIVE /media/nss/XXXXXX
rsync -rvh root@192.168.#.##::nss /mnt/nas/nss
rsync -rvh root@192.168.#.##::nss /mnt/nas/nss


crontab -l looks somthing like this:

# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE ......
# (Cron version V5.0 -- ......
0 0 15 * * /opt/novell/proxymgmt/bin/change_proxy_pwd.sh -A yes
1 2 * * * /root/bin/sync.sh


The issues is that the rsync job appears to be be successful but the job appears to say running and had been building up for months.

"ps aux |grep rsync" showed a huge list of running jobs dating back months.

Rebooting the server cleared all of this but I believe it's starting to build up again. This slows down the NAS drive.

Would there be any mistakes in my job commands that are causing this?
Let me know is further info is needed.

Thanks
