AMREPORT(8) System Administration Commands AMREPORT(8)NAMEamreport - generate a formatted output of statistics for an Amanda run
SYNOPSISamreport [config] [-i] [-M address] [-l logfile] [-f outputfile]
[-p postscriptfile] [-o configoption]...
Amreport generates a summary report of an amanda(8) backup run. If no
configuration name is specified, amanda.conf is read from the current
See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.
Name of the configuration to process.
Don´t email the report.
Mail the report to address instead of the mailto value from
Name of the log file to parse to generate the report. If a log file
is not specified, it defaults to the file:
where logdir is the log directory defined in amanda.conf.
Normally, amreport sends the report via e-mail to the mailto user
as defined in the amanda.conf file. If outputfile is specified,
then the report is put in outputfile.
Send the postscript output to the file postscriptfile instead of to
the lpr(1) command. This option has an effect only if the lbl-templ
directive is specified in amanda.conf.
See the "CONFIGURATION OVERRIDE" section in amanda(8).
Amanda can print postscript labels describing the contents of tape(s)
written in a run. The labels are designed to be folded and inserted
into the tape case along with the tape or hole punched and put in a
3-ring binder. Various label templates are provided to format data for
different tape sizes.
The information printed varies slightly between label templates due to
size constraints. Labels contain one line for each host/file-system
pair and may also contain the file number on the tape, the level of the
dump, the original size of the dump and the size of the (possibly
compressed) tape file.
Add the lbl-templ parameter to the tapetype definition in amanda.conf
to enable labels. If you don´t add this line to your tapetype
definition, amreport will not print tape labels.
You may use the remap=´I´>printer keyword in amanda.conf to print to
other than the system default printer.
Amanda provides label templates for the following tape types. These are
pretty generic labels and should be easy to customize for other tape
types or particular site needs.
* ExaByte 8mm tapes
* DAT 4mm tapes
* DLT tapes
* 3-ring binder
The 3-ring binder type is the most generic. It may be used to make a
hardcopy log of the tapes.
The exit code of amreport 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
