AMCLEANUP(8)             System Administration Commands             AMCLEANUP(8)

       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.

           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.

           Do the cleanup only if all process listed in the log file are already

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

           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.
