    Comparing two directories

    Hello, I have a backup server on my network, that I am using rsync/SSH to perform backups to. I was wondering if there was a way to compare my source directory with the directory on the remote machine, to ensure that my data was copied properly. I don't have much faith in RAID yet, especially with my driver compilation giving me a minor error (although it appears to be working fine). I know about 'diff' but am not sure if it can do a network directory... I was hoping for something simple in the area of an md5sum, but I can't get that to work on a directory... Thanks in advance!

    You may want to use rsync itself to do the compare with dry run or compare options. Drive it with a shell script and capture exit codes to decide what to do if not consistent.
