I need to synchronization by rsync

Hi everyone!

I wonder about the rsync. The purpose I just want:

synchronization from server 1 to server 2 by rsync, example:

Node 1: /app/logs/*
Node 2: /app/logs/*

in Node 1 when I used rsync -aru /app/logs/ node2:/app/logs/, then everything will be copied and update to node 2. But, when I remove or delete a file, a directory in node 1, so rsync will not synchronization to node 2. Example:

Node1: /app/logs/test1 sync to node 2:/app/logs/test1 -> okie
Node1: rm -rf /app/logs/test1 , sync to node2. After sync complete, node 2 could not remove or delete the sub-directory test1, this exists in /app/logs.

How do I do?

Thank you for your guide.

Did you use try of these rsync options?

     --del                   an alias for --delete-during
     --delete                delete extraneous files from destination dirs
     --delete-before         receiver deletes before transfer, not during
     --delete-during         receiver deletes during transfer (default)
     --delete-delay          find deletions during, delete after
     --delete-after          receiver deletes after transfer, not during
     --delete-excluded       also delete excluded files from destination dirs

I'm sure one of them will suit your needs.
