Amanda 2.5.1p2

When I issue the command amadmin config_file find


The output contains about a dozen lines like:
sendsize. ... .exclude: skipping cruft file, perhaps you should delete it.
selfcheck. ... .exclude: skipping cruft file, perhaps you should delete it.

The correct results are displayed after all of the above lines are displayed.

Each line is a file in the Amanda tmp directory, and were created by the last amdump. I can't seem to find anything on these messages (i.e., what they are, or how to control them). Are they important? What are they trying to tell an administrator, and is action required? Can I tell Amanda to not generate them?

Thank you.

It means Amanda found files in the holding disk directory which should not belong there.
