NAME
bup-server - the server side of the bup client-server relationship SYNOPSIS
bup server DESCRIPTION
bup server is the server side of a remote bup session. If you use bup-split(1) or bup-save(1) with the -r option, they will ssh to the remote server and run bup server to receive the transmitted objects. There is normally no reason to run bup server yourself. MODES
smart In this mode, the server checks each incoming object against the idx files in its repository. If any object already exists, it tells the client about the idx file it was found in, allowing the client to download that idx and avoid sending duplicate data. This is bup-server's default mode. dumb In this mode, the server will not check its local index before writing an object. To avoid writing duplicate objects, the server will tell the client to download all of its .idx files at the start of the session. This mode is useful on low powered server hard- ware (ie router/slow NAS). FILES
$BUP_DIR/bup-dumb-server Activate dumb server mode, as discussed above. This file is not created by default in new repositories. SEE ALSO

NAME
bup - Backup program using rolling checksums and git file formats SYNOPSIS
bup [global options...] <command> [options...] DESCRIPTION
bup is a program for making backups of your files using the git file format. Unlike git(1) itself, bup is optimized for handling huge data sets including individual very large files (such a virtual machine images). However, once a backup set is created, it can still be accessed using git tools. The individual bup subcommands appear in their own man pages. GLOBAL OPTIONS
--version print bup's version number. Equivalent to bup-version(1) -d, --bup-dir=BUP_DIR use the given BUP_DIR parameter as the bup repository location, instead of reading it from the $BUP_DIR environment variable or using the default ~/.bup location. COMMONLY USED SUBCOMMANDS
bup-fsck(1) Check backup sets for damage and add redundancy information bup-ftp(1) Browse backup sets using an ftp-like client bup-fuse(1) Mount your backup sets as a filesystem bup-help(1) Print detailed help for the given command bup-index(1) Create or display the index of files to back up bup-on(1) Backup a remote machine to the local one bup-restore(1) Extract files from a backup set bup-save(1) Save files into a backup set (note: run "bup index" first) bup-web(1) Launch a web server to examine backup sets RARELY USED SUBCOMMANDS
bup-damage(1) Deliberately destroy data bup-drecurse(1) Recursively list files in your filesystem bup-init(1) Initialize a bup repository bup-join(1) Retrieve a file backed up using bup-split(1) bup-ls(1) Browse the files in your backup sets bup-margin(1) Determine how close your bup repository is to armageddon bup-memtest(1) Test bup memory usage statistics bup-midx(1) Index objects to speed up future backups bup-newliner(1) Make sure progress messages don't overlap with output bup-random(1) Generate a stream of random output bup-server(1) The server side of the bup client-server relationship bup-split(1) Split a single file into its own backup set bup-tick(1) Wait for up to one second. bup-version(1) Report the version number of your copy of bup.
