Generate toc (table of contents) for an amanda run
amtoc [-a] [-i] [-t] [-f file] [-s subs] [-w] [--] logfile
Amtoc generates a table of contents for an Amanda run. It's a perl script (if you don't have perl, install it first!).
The output file name will be label-of-the-tape.toc in the same directory as logfile.
Display help about amtoc.
Generate the output in tabular form.
Write the output to a file ('-' for stdout).
Evaluate the output file name from subs, with $_ set to label-of-the-tape. The -a option is equivalent to -s 's/$_/.toc/'.
Separate tapes with form-feeds and display blank lines before totals.
Marks the last option so the next parameter is the logfile.
(use '-' for stdin)
The standard output has five fields separated by two spaces:
# Server:/partition date level size[Kb] 0 daily-05: 19991005 - - 1 cuisun15:/cuisun15/home 19991005 1 96 2 cuinfs:/export/dentiste 19991005 1 96 ... 103 cuisg11:/ 19991005 0 4139136 103 total: - - 16716288
In tabular format (-t), this would look like:
# Server:/partition date lev size[Kb] 0 daily-05: 19991005 - - 1 cuisun15:/cuisun15/home 19991005 1 96 2 cuinfs:/export/dentiste 19991005 1 96 ... 103 cuisg11:/ 19991005 0 4139136 103 total: - - 16716288
The easiest way to use it is to run amtoc right after amdump in the cron job:
amdump daily ; logdir=`amgetconf daily logdir` ; log=`ls -1t $logdir/log.*.[0-9] | head -1` ; amtoc -a $log
which will generate /usr/local/etc/amanda//daily/tape_label.toc. You may also want to call amtoc after an amflush.
