SnaRSShE (Snapshots via Rsync in a Simple Shell Environment) is a simple, lightweight (both in size and system requirements) server data archiving package designed for secure and reliable archiving of critical data of defined network systems. The general idea was taken from the need to capture snapshots of data on a regular basis and have easy access to that data. Originally, the script handled alerting as well, but the author since recognized the sense in offloading the alerting to a separate system. This script is a front-end for rsync, which does the real work. SnaRSShE just creates the environment and manages the rotation of archives.
Release Notes: While the system has been written and re-written dozens of times and used in production for years, this is the first time the system is being packaged and prepared for public use.
