RDUP(1) 							       rdup								   RDUP(1)

rdup - generate a file list suitable for making backups SYNOPSIS
rdup [-N timestamp] -[-Pcmd,opt1,...,opt7]... [OPTION]... FILELIST [DIR/FILE]... DESCRIPTION
rdup is a utility inspired by rsync and the Plan9 way of doing backups. rdup itself does not backup anything. It only prints a list of files that are changed, or all files in case of a null dump. It also handles files that are removed, allowing for correct incremental backups. All paths printed are absolute. rdup uses the change time (ctime) to decide whether a file is altered. It works as follows, for a full dump 1. Crawl all directories, and print all the names found to standard output. 2. Write a filelist with all the names found when crawling. Use this list to calculate the correct incremental dump. And for incremental dumps 1. Read in the filelist that was written when doing a full dump. 2. Touch the time stamp file. 3. Crawl all the directories again. 4. Diff 1. and 2. to get two lists; one of removed items and one of added/modified items. 5. Write the removed items to standard output 6. Write the modified/new items to standard output. 7. Write a new filelist. The FILELIST is a internal list rdup writes to, to keep track of which files are in a backup. If you don't want this (i.e. make a full backup), use /dev/null here. The file /dev/null is handled specially by rdup: if detected no new file list is written. The DIRS/FILES can be specified multiple times. These are the directories and files you want to backup. If omitted it defaults to the cur- rent directory "." . If the -N timestamp option is not given, all paths found are printed. Only when a -N timestamp file is given, times can be compared and an incremental output can be generated. rdup prints a filelist to standard output. Subsequent programs in a pipe line can be used to actually implement to backup scheme. After a run a new FILELIST is written. No warning is given when FILELIST is an existing file, it just gets overwritten by rdup. New runs will print out only those files that have actually changed or are removed since the last run, thereby making incremental backups possible. Files are checked for changes by comparing the c-time (change time), if this time is NEWER than the c-time of timestamp file the pathname is printed to standard output. When files are removed they are also printed to standard output, but they are prefixed with a '-'. See FOR- MAT below. The default format rdup uses is: "%p%T %b %t %u %U %g %G %l %s %n%C" Note, that rdup also supports hashing of files, this makes it possible to check the local hash with the hash of the backed up file. All errors are written to standard error. If the directory or file does not exist, they are skipped and a warning is emitted. The general idea is to be very UNIX like and create a bunch of simple programs which each do a their specific thing very well. With rdup and a small shell script (50 lines) one can implement encrypted and compressed backups. As rdup doesn't backup anything, the backup policy; what you backup, how you backup, how often and how you restore; is all left to the scripts and your imagination. To kick start your imagination see rdup-tr(1), rdup-up(1) and maybe rdup-backups. OPTIONS
-Pcommand,opt0,...,opt6 Filter all output through command. opt0 through opt6 are given as options to the command. Multiple -P's can be used, there is how- ever a maximum of seven options for each command. The options are separated with commas, there must be no space in between. Due to the nature of pipes in Unix, this pipeline is recreated for every file processed. Also see 'Child Processes' below. -F format Specify a printf-style format to use. See FORMAT below. -N timestamp use the c_time of file timestamp as the timestamp to decide what to include in the incremental backup list. If timestamp does not exist a full dump is performed. -M timestamp As -N, but look at the m_time of timestamp. -R Reverse the output of rdup. Tools accepting this ouput must create leading directory as they see them. This option allows a script -- running as a normal user -- to put files in a directory which could have 0600 as its permission. -E file The file named 'file' contains a list of Perl-compatible regular expressions (PCRE), one per line, that rdup will use to exclude names. A '#' at the start of the line can be used to signal a comment. Empty lines are ignored. If a directory is excluded, rdup won't descend in that directory, so all files in that directory are also excluded. The directories leading up to the directory to be backed up can not be excluded. If you use a command line like: rdup /dev/null /home/miekg/bin The directories '/home', '/home/miekg', '/home/miekg/bin' are always printed. If you want to exclude the file '/home/miekg/blaat' you need to add the following regular expression: '/home/miekg/blaat'. If you want to exclude all .mozilla/cache directories of all users you can use '/home/.*/.mozilla/cache/.*'. This doesn't exclude the directory itself and I'm assuming that the users' home directories are found under '/home'. Also note that rdup does not print directories with a trailing slash. -a Restore the original access times on files and directories. -n Don't honor .nobackup files. Normally if such a file is found the directory and all files containing it, are not printed to standard output. Now they are. -r Only print removed files; entries that start with a `-'. This option unsets -m. -m Only print modified/new files; entries that start with a `+'. This option unsets -r. -v Be more verbose. When used each path will also be printed to standard error. -s size Don't output files larger than size bytes. This can be used to limit the amount of data to be transferred when doing a remote backup. This option only applies to files. -x Stay on the local filesystem. -V Print rdup's version. -h Give an overview of the options. Child Processes (-P flag) When creating output you might also want to 'pipe' the contents of each file through a number of commands, say a compression and encryption utility. Note that this is different than compressing the entire archive as GNU tar allows by using the -z option. So this is where rdup comes in. It allows you to create a normal archive in which each file is encrypted (or compressed. reversed or whatever). rdup does this by forking child processes which transform the content. If one of the forked children returns an exit code other than zero (0), it is assumed the whole conversion process failed. In that case rdup terminates. As said rdup works by forking off a number of child processes (those commands named with the -P option(s)), interconnecting these with pipes. The current file is connected to the first child. The output created by these child processes is captured by the parent (rdup). The contents is then written to standard output in an archive format. As a picture says more than a thousand words here is an ASCII image of the process: +--- ... (stdout) ... ----> archive / rdup <--- ... ... <----+ | loop #files | | file ---> cmd1 | cmd2 | ...| cmdN BACKUPS
With: rm -f timestamp && rdup -N timestamp LIST DIR A full-dump filelist is printed to standard output. And with: rdup -N timestamp LIST DIR An incremental dump filelist is printed. The file timestamp is used to save the exact time of rdup's run. The file LIST is used to calcu- late the correct incremental dump list, this is needed for files that are removed, or have a different type. FORMAT
The default format rdup uses is: "%p%T %b %t %u %U %g %G %l %s %n%C" The following escape sequences are understood by rdup: 'p': '+' if file is new/modified, '-' if removed 'b': permission bits from lstat(2), octal in four digits 'm': the file mode bits, st_mode from lstat(2), decimal digits 'u': uid 'U': username 'g': gid 'G': groupname 'l': path name length 's': file size, but see CAVEATS 'n': path name 'N': path name, but in case of a soft- or hardlink only the link name. 't': time of modification (seconds from epoch) 'H': the SHA1 hash of the regular file, all zeros ("0") for all other types 'T': file type - normal file, l symlink, h hardlink, d directory, c character device, b block device, p named pipe and s socket. 'C': the content of the file (none for all other types) To delimit the output of rdup with NULLs you can use '' in the format string. Any file content is written in a block/chunk based manner. The last block is signaled with a null block. A block start entry is ASCII and is formatted as follows: VVBLOCKBBBBB . Where 'VV' is the version, currently at '01', then the literal string 'BLOCK' and then the amount of bytes (BBBBB), typical '08192'. And then a newline. This look like this: 01BLOCK08192 <START OF THE FIRST 8192 BYTES>01BLOCK00015 <ANOTHER 15 BYTES>01BLOCK00000 A byte count of zero signals a stop block. FILELIST
rdup writes the (internal) FILELIST in the following format: MODE DEV INODE LINK UID GID PATH_SIZE FILE_SIZE PATH Where MODE is the st_mode from stat(2), DEV is the dev id as returned by the stat call and INODE is the inode number - rdup needs this info to decide if a directory is renamed. LINK is equal to 'h' for hardlinks, 'l' for symlinks and otherwise it is '*'. UID and GID are the numeric user and group id of the file. PATH_SIZE is the length of PATH. FILE_SIZE the file size. And finally PATH is the path of the file. A typical example is: 16893 2050 32085 * 1000 1000 30 4096 /home/miekg/git/rdup/.git/logs OUTPUT FORMAT
The output generated by rdup is formatted like: +|-TYPE BITS MTIME UID USER GID GROUP PATH_SIZE FILE_SIZE PATH FILE_CONTENTS This makes it possible possible for a remote shell script to receive the actual file contetns and make a backup. For directories: the FILE_SIZE is zero and no content is printed. Thus: +d 0755 1260243445 1000 miekg 1000 miekg 11 0 /home/miekg For regular files the following is a sample output: +- 0644 1260243445 1000 miekg 1000 miekg 32 6 /home/miekg/svn/rdup/trunk/aaa/a01BLOCK00006 hello 01BLOCK00000 Where aaa/a is a regular file containing the word 'hello ' CAVEATS Soft- and hardlinks are handled differently when using %n, if you don't like this behavior use %N. The PATH name is generated from the link's name and its target. A symlink like /home/bin/blaat -> /home/bin/bliep is printed as '/home/bin/blaat -> /home/bin/bliep'. The PATH_SIZE is modified accordingly, where ' -> ' (4 characters) is also counted. The FILE_SIZE is not needed for soft- or hardlinks, so it is set the length of the link's name -- the part left of the ' ->', in this case the length of '/home/bin/blaat'. If rdup encounters a hardlink it is handled in the same way, but the output type is set to 'h' instead of 'l'. A hardlink is only detected if rdup finds a file with the same inode and device number as a previous one, i.e. such hardlinks must be contained in your backup. Again note: with '%N' only the link's name is printed. The FILE_SIZE is still set to the length of the link's name. Device Files For devices the size field (%s) is changed to hold the major,minor number of the device. So if a major number is 8 and the minor number is 0 (under Linux this is /dev/sda), its size will be 8,0. The numbers are only separated with a comma `,'. Symlinks You will probably think rdup will descend into the directory the symbolic link points to. This is not what actually happens, rdup will print any directories leading up to the symlink and will not descend into the directory. GNU tar works the same. EXIT CODE
rdup return a zero exit code on success, otherwise 1 is returned. rdup will abort if a file can not be concatenated, if a regular expres- sion can not be compiled or if a signal is received. EXAMPLES
The next set of examples will all make a full dump -- because of the use of /dev/null. See rdup-tr(1) for more advanced examples. rdup (mirroring) Backup: rdup /dev/null ~/bin | rdup-up -t /shared/backup Restore: rdup /dev/null /shared/backup | rdup-up -t /tmp/restore or cp -rap /shared/backup /tmp/restore rdup (archiving) Backup: rdup /dev/null ~/bin > my-archive.rdup Restore: rdup-up -t /tmp/restore < my-archive.rdup cpio Backup: rdup -R -F '%N ' /dev/null ~/bin | cpio -o -Hcrc > my-archive.cpio Restore: cpio -i -d -Hcrc < my-archive.cpio tar Backup: rdup -F '%N ' /dev/null ~/bin | tar c -f my-archive.tar -T - --no-recursion Restore: tar x -f my-archive.tar AUTHOR
