man : amoverview(8)
amoverview - display file systems processed by AMANDA over time
amoverview [[-config] config] [-hostwidth width] [-diskwidth width]
[-skipmissed] [-last] [-num0] [-togo0] [-verbose]
Amoverview displays a chart showing hosts and file systems processed by
AMANDA along with the backup level performed each day.
See the amanda(8) man page for more details about AMANDA.
Use configuration config instead of configuration daily.
Set host field column width to width characters instead of 8.
Set disk field column width to width characters instead of 20.
Compacts the output by only printing stats for the days AMANDA
-last Outputs the last status of each disk at the start. Useful for
long tapecycles and/or sparse reports.
-num0 Outputs the number of level 0 dumps for each disk.
-togo0 Outputs the number of runs until the last level 0 dump is over-
Amoverview can take a long while on large systems. This option
reports intermediate steps while it is working.
amoverview is a summary of the output of " amadmin <config> find ".
When the last column of amadmin find contains anything other than "OK",
amoverview translates this into "E" for that day.
A number indicates the level of backup and it succeeded. An "E" indi-
cates an error for that day. You get an "E" for all errors, like failed
to connect, datatimeout, computer crashed, etc, but also for failing to
write to tape.
You can have an "E" followed by a number if a filesystem ran into
end-of-tape once (gives an "E", and later that day, you flush it to a
second tape (a number: the level, indicating success). If the flush
failed too, you get a double "EE" for that day.
You can also have a double code if you have two tapes in the changer
and AMANDA failed to write to tape the first time because it hit end of
tape (resulting in "E0", for a full, "E1" for an incremental etc.) or
twice with error ("EE"), and may a successful flush afterwards giving
maybe "EE0". (Only the latest 2 characters are printed).
This shows the /home file system on host2 was backed up at level 3 on
the 8th, 9th and 10th of December, had a full backup on the 11th, a
level 1 on the 12th and a level 2 on the 13th.
