amcleanup






amcleanup − run the Amanda cleanup process after a failure

amcleanup [−k] [−p] [−r] [−v] [−−note string] config



     Amcleanup generates the Amanda Mail Report and updates
the Amanda databases after a system failure on a tape server
host. This cleanup process is normally done automatically as
part of the amdump program, but if amdump cannot complete
for some reason (usually because of a tape server host
crash), amcleanup must be run some time later (usually
during system boot).

     The amcleanupdisk program is run with the same [−r] and
[−v] options.

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



     −k
     Kill all process listed in the log file are their
     child. if there is no log file, then kill all amdump,
     amflush and amvault process and their child.

     −p
     Do the cleanup only if all process listed in the log
     file are already terminated.

     −r
     Remove bad file in holding disk. This options is passed
     to amcleanupdisk.

     −v
     Generate verbose output. This options is passed to
     amcleanupdisk.

     −−note string
     Add the string to the log files, it will show up in the
     NOTES section of the report.



     This example runs the Amanda cleanup process by hand
after a failure.
% amcleanup daily

     Putting the following line in a system boot script
(e.g.  /etc/rc.local) runs the Amanda cleanup process as
part of the reboot, eliminating the need to run it by hand.
/usr/local/sbin/amcleanup daily

     If nothing needs to be done, amcleanup exits normally
with the message:
amcleanup: no unprocessed logfile to clean up.
