AMCLEANUP(8)                                                      AMCLEANUP(8)




NAME

       amcleanup - run the AMANDA cleanup process after a failure


SYNOPSIS

       amcleanup config



DESCRIPTION

       Amcleanup  generates  the  AMANDA  Mail  Report  and updates the AMANDA
       databases after a system failure on a tape server  host.  This  cleanup
       process  is  normally done automatically as part of the amdump program,
       but if amdump cannot complete for some reason  (usually  because  of  a
       tape server host crash), amcleanup must be run some time later (usually
       during system boot).


       See the amanda(8) man page for more details about AMANDA.



EXAMPLES

       This example runs the AMANDA cleanup process by hand after a failure.

       % amcleanup daily


       Putting the following line in a system boot script (e.g. /etc/rc.local)
       runs  the AMANDA cleanup process as part of the reboot, eliminating the
       need to run it by hand.

       /usr/local/sbin/amcleanup daily


       If nothing needs to be done, amcleanup exits normally with the message:

       amcleanup: no unprocessed logfile to clean up.
