Synchronizes data between two systems

'Livesync' synchronizes data between two systems. If available, it will utilize OS-level filesystem snapshots to ensure data integrity. It can use SSH and Kerberos for security, and has several built-in functions that let it run on all systems in an environment, yet only synchronize data from the master to the slaves. It automatically and reliably determines which system is the master based on the specified configuration criteria.
