     Amoverview displays a chart showing hosts and file
systems processed by Amanda along with the backup level
performed each day.

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

     −−config config
     Use configuration config.

     −−hostwidth width
     Set host field column width to width characters instead
     of 8.

     −−diskwidth width
     Set disk field column width to width characters instead
     of 20.

     Compacts the output by only printing stats for the days
     Amanda actually ran.

     Outputs the last status of each disk at the start.
     Useful for long tapecycles and/or sparse reports.

     Outputs the number of level 0 dumps for each disk.

     Outputs the number of runs until the last level 0 dump
     is overwritten.

     Amoverview can take a long while on large systems. This
     option reports intermediate steps while it is working.

     amoverview is a summary of the output of " amadmin
<config> find ". When the last column of amadmin find
contains anything other than "OK", amoverview translates
this into "E" for that day.


     A number indicates the level of backup and it
succeeded. An "E" indicates an error for that day. You get
an "E" for all errors, like failed to connect, datatimeout,
computer crashed, etc, but also for failing to write to

     You can have an "E" followed by a number if a
filesystem ran into end−of−tape once (gives an "E", and
later that day, you flush it to a second tape (a number: the
level, indicating success). If the flush failed too, you get
a double "EE" for that day.

     You can also have a double code if you have two tapes
in the changer and Amanda failed to write to tape the first
time because it hit end of tape (resulting in "E0", for a
full, "E1" for an incremental etc.) or twice with error
("EE"), and may a successful flush afterwards giving maybe
"EE0". (Only the latest 2 characters are printed).

     This shows the /home file system on host2 was backed up
at level 3 on the 8th, 9th and 10th of December, had a full
backup on the 11th, a level 1 on the 12th and a level 2 on
the 13th.
