AMREPORT(8)                                                        AMREPORT(8)




NAME

       amreport - generate a formatted output of statistics for an AMANDA run


SYNOPSIS

       amreport [config] [-l logfile] [-f outputfile] [-p postscriptfile]



DESCRIPTION

       Amreport  generates  a summary report of an amanda(8) backup run. If no
       configuration name is specified, amanda.conf is read from  the  current
       directory.


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



OPTIONS

       config Name of the configuration to process.


       -l logfile
              Name  of  the log file to parse to generate the report. If a log
              file is not specified, it defaults to the file:


       logdir/log


       where logdir is the log directory defined in amanda.conf.


       -f outputfile
              Normally, amreport sends the report via e-mail to the mailto us-
              er  as  defined in the amanda.conf file. If outputfile is speci-
              fied, then the report is put in outputfile.


       -p postscriptfile
              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.



LABEL PRINTING

       AMANDA can print postscript labels describing the contents  of  tape(s)
       written in a run. The labels are designed to be folded and inserted in-
       to 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 com-
       pressed) 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 defini-
       tion, 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.



TEMPLATES

       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.
