amflush [ -b ] [ -f ] [ -s ] [ -D datestamp ]* config [ host [ disk ]*
Amflush writes Amanda backups from the holding disks to tape, and
updates the Amanda info database and tape list accordingly. Backups
may stay in a holding disk when something is wrong with the tape at the
time amdump is run. When this happens, the problem must be corrected
and amflush run by hand.
-b Run amflush in batch mode. All datestamp are selected unless
specified. The flush is started without confirmation.
-f Run amflush in foreground. Amflush normally detaches itself
from the tty and runs as a background process. With the -f
option, amflush stays in the foreground. This is useful if
amflush is run as part of another script that, for example,
advances the tape after the flush is completed.
-s Write log to stdout/stderr instead of the amflush log file.
Require the -f option.
specify a datestamp expression you want to flush, see the
"DATASTAMP EXPRESSION" section of amanda(8) for a description.
-D 20001225-7 will flush all dump from 25 december 2000 to 27
You can specify many host/disk expressions, only disks that match an
expression will be flushed. All disk are flushed if no expression are
given. see the "HOST & DISK EXPRESSION" section of amanda(8) for a
Amflush will look in the holding disks specified by the amanda.conf
file in /etc/amanda/config for any non-empty Amanda work directories.
It then prompts you to select a directory or to process all of the
directories. The work directories in the holding disks are named by
the date at the time amdump was run, e.g. 19910215.
See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.
Amflush will search for holding areas associated with the PUCC configu-
ration. After you select which holding area to flush, amflush writes
the data to tape, updates the databases and sends a mail report similar
% amflush DailySet1
20001113: found Amanda directory.
20001114: found Amanda directory.
Multiple Amanda directories, please pick one by letter:
You’ll get mail when amflush is finished.
