    Downsizing a backup

    I use Amanda 3.3.7 for backing up several filesystems on several clients, with different retention policies for each client. These are backed up to vtapes, and after a successful job are archived to...

    Hmm. Perhaps the problem is with nfs itself, since I starting having problems with the original configuration also.

    What is the syntax for that? I tried
    setdevice /mnt/nfs4/target1/QUARTERLY_amanda/Aself/vtapes
    and
    setdevice vaulting_disk
    (It complains about settape being deprecated)

    Ah, now I understand. Thanks.

    My objective was to have a local backup set that kept only the last few months, and a quarterly backup set from which I could also restore. If I amvault one local...

    Do you mean that the setdate doesn't do anything?...

    Do you mean that the setdate doesn't do anything? Or that amrecover doesn't look in tertiary storage at all?

    amrecover from amvault

    I dump to vtapes on one system:
    -- (from amanda.conf)
    tpchanger "chg-disk:/mnt/nfs5/target1/amanda/self/vtapes"
    amrecover_changer "changer"
    labelstr "Self[0-9][0-9][0-9]"
    autolabel "Self%%%"...

    Not sure what makes the different "drive"s, but restore works OK.
  13. Simultaneous amrecover and amdump while using vtapes?

    Since some of our full backups can take over a day, and users fumble-finger at all hours, it would be useful to be able to run an amrecover while the amdump is running. It isn't obvious how to use...

    gnutar-lists snapshot size

    I'm installing AMANDA to backup an existing server, and find that the number of files is such that /var/lib usage jumps by 1.4G every day thanks to the snapshot files. I'd like to run daily...

    Success

    I used amgtar as you suggested. Since the server was SL6 and the client SL5 the versions of tar didn't match. I had to build a new tar for amgtar to use, but once that was in place things ran...

    No, I'm not using the estimates right now. They didn't seem to have much effect during earlier testing.

    I was using GNUTAR, but I'll try your suggestion.

    Faster than gnutar?

    We have a filesystem with 4TB and about 36M files. AMANDA takes about 120hours to back it up. Retrieving a file isn't trivial either.
    A commercial system (which we want to replace) does a backup...
  18. What is stalling parallel backups of the same filesystem?

    I divide a filesystem into 4 sections: /home/[a-f], /home[g-m], etc and try to run 4 backups in parallel. The server is on a bonded pair of 10Gb lines, but in any event there are so many files that...
  19. Are parallel backup streams possible from a client?

    We are running the community amanda 3.3.5-1 on RHEL6.
    The client and server systems are servers with RAID arrays.
    I'm testing backup to virtual tape.

    The network link isn't maxed out, and the...
