AMREPORT(1)                  General Commands Manual                 AMREPORT(1)



NAME
       amreport - generate a formatted output of statistics for an Amanda run

SYNOPSIS
       amreport [ config ] [ -l logfile ] [ -f outputfile ] [ -p postscriptfile
       ]

DESCRIPTION
       Amreport generates a summary report of an amanda(8) backup run.  If no
       configuration name is specified, amanda.conf is read from the current
       directory.

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

OPTIONS
       config Name of the configuration to process.

       [-l logfile]
              Name of the log file to parse to generate the report.  If a log
              file is not specified, it defaults to the file:

                     logdir/log

              where logdir is the log directory defined in amanda.conf.

       [-f outputfile]
              Normally, amreport sends the report via e-mail to the mailto user
              as defined in the amanda.conf file.  If outputfile is specified,
              then the report is put in outputfile.

       [-p postscriptfile]
              Send the postscript output to the file postscriptfile instead of
              to the lpr(1) command.  This option has an effect only if the lbl-
              templ directive is specified in amanda.conf.

LABEL PRINTING
       Amanda can print postscript labels describing the contents of tape(s)
       written in a run.  The labels are designed to be folded and inserted into
       the tape case along with the tape or hole punched and put in a 3-ring
       binder.  Various label templates are provided to format data for
       different tape sizes.

       The information printed varies slightly between label templates due to
       size constraints.  Labels contain one line for each host/file-system pair
       and may also contain the file number on the tape, the level of the dump,
       the original size of the dump and the size of the (possibly compressed)
       tape file.

       Add the lbl-templ parameter to the tapetype definition in amanda.conf to
       enable labels.  If you don't add this line to your tapetype definition,
       amreport will not print tape labels.

       You may use the printer keyword in amanda.conf to print to other than the
       system default printer.

TEMPLATES
       Amanda provides label templates for the following tape types.  These are
       pretty generic labels and should be easy to customize for other tape
       types or particular site needs.

                     * ExaByte 8mm tapes
                     * DAT 4mm tapes
                     * DLT tapes
                     * 3-ring binder

       The 3-ring binder type is the most generic.  It may be used to make a
       hardcopy log of the tapes.
