NAME

       amoverview - display file systems processed by AMANDA over time


SYNOPSIS

       amoverview [[-config] config] [-hostwidth width] [-diskwidth width]
                  [-skipmissed] [-verbose]



DESCRIPTION

       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.



OPTIONS

       -config config
              Use configuration config instead of configuration daily.


       -hostwidth width
              Set host field column width to width characters instead of 8.


       -diskwidth width
              Set disk field column width to width characters instead of 20.


       -skipmissed
              Compacts  the  output by only printing stats for the days AMANDA
              actually ran.


       -verbose
              Amoverview can take a long while on large systems.  This  option
              reports intermediate steps while it is working.



RESULTS

       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).



EXAMPLE

       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.
