NAME
amstatus - display the state of an Amanda run SYNOPSIS
amstatus [--file amdumpfile] [--summary] [--dumping] [--waitdumping] [--waittaper] [--dumpingtape] [--writingtape] [--finished] [--failed] [--estimate] [--gestimate] [--stats] [--locale-independent-date-format] [--config] config DESCRIPTION
Amstatus gives the current state of the Amanda run specified by the config configuration. If there is no active Amanda running, it summarizes the result of the last run. It may also be used to summarize the results of a previous run. See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda. OPTIONS
All options may be abbreviated to the shortest non-ambiguous sub-string. If no options are given, everything is displayed. [--config] config Specify the Amanda configuration you want to display the state for. --file amdumpfile Specify an alternate file instead of the amdump or amflush file. --summary Display a summary of the state of the run. --dumping Display all partitions that are dumping. --waitdumping|wdumping Display all partitions that are waiting to be dumped. --waittaper|wtaper Display all partitions dumped that are waiting to be written to tape. --dumpingtape|dtape Display all partitions that are dumping directly to tape. --writingtape|wtape Display all partitions that are writing to tape. --finished Display all partitions that are dumped and written to tape. --failed|error Display all partitions that failed. --estimate Display all partitions whose estimate is finished. Works only during the estimate phase. --gestimate|gettingestimate Display all partitions whose estimate is not finished. Works only during the estimate phase. --stats|statistics Display statistics about active-time of taper and dumpers. --locale-independent-date-format Output the date in a locale independent format. The format is the same executing: date +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S %Z' EXIT CODE
The exit code of amstatus is the ORed value of: 0 = success 1 = error 4 = a dle failed 8 = Don't know the status of a dle (RESULT_MISSING in the report) 16 = tape error or no more tape SEE ALSO

NAME
amdump - back up all disks in an Amanda configuration SYNOPSIS
amdump [--no-taper] [-o configoption...] config [host [disk...]...] DESCRIPTION
Amdump is the main interface to the Amanda backup process. It loads the specified configuration and attempts to back up every disk specified by the disklist(5). Amdump is normally run by cron. The command optionally takes a set of DLE specifications (see amanda-match(7)) to narrow the DLEs that will be dumped. All disks are dumped if no expressions are given. If a file named hold exists in the configuration directory, amdump will wait until it is removed before starting the backups. This allows scheduled backups to be delayed when circumstances warrant, for example, if the tape device is being used for some other purpose. While waiting, amdump checks for the hold file every minute. In some cases it is desirable to dump all Amanda clients to holding disk without writing anything to storage media. The --no-taper option instructs Amanda to not start the taper, and thus enter degraded mode immediately. See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda. OPTIONS
host [disk]* Specify the host and disk on which the command will work -- see the description of DLE specifications in amanda-match(7). -o configoption See the "CONFIGURATION OVERRIDE" section in amanda(8). EXAMPLE
Here is a typical crontab entry. It runs amdump every weeknight at 1 a.m. as user bin: 0 1 * * 1-5 bin /usr/local/sbin/amdump daily Please see the crontab(5) or crontab(1) manual page for the correct crontab format for your system. MESSAGES
amdump: waiting for hold file to be removed The "hold" file exists and amdump is waiting for it to be removed before starting backups. amdump: amdump or amflush is already running, or you must run amcleanup Amdump detected another amdump or amflush running, or the remains of a previous incomplete amdump or amflush run. This run is terminated. If the problem is caused by the remains of a previous run, you must execute amcleanup(8) and then rerun amdump. EXIT CODE
The exit code of amdump is the ORed value of: 0 = success 1 = error 2 = a dle give strange message 4 = a dle failed 8 = Don't know the status of a dle (RESULT_MISSING in the report) 16 = tape error or no more tape SEE ALSO
