Pylsyncd is a Python implementation, similar to lsyncd, that uses rsync to synchronize local directories with several remote machines running rsyncd. Pylsyncd recursively monitors a set of directories using pyinotify, a pure Python module used for monitoring filesystems changes that relies on inotify. The main advantage of pylsyncd against lsyncd is that it uses message queues in order to synchronize several destination servers in parallel, saving up time when it is required to have more than one destination. It has been tested in heavily loaded environments.
