Name

amtoc — generate TOC (Table Of Contents) for an Amanda run

Synopsis

amtoc [-a ] [-i ] [-t ] [ -f file ] [ -s subs ] [-w ] [-- ] logfile

DESCRIPTION

Amtoc generates a table of contents for an Amanda run. It's a perl script (if you don't have perl, install it first!).

OPTIONS

-a

The output file name will be label-of-the-tape.toc in the same directory as logfile.

-i

Display help about amtoc.

-t

Generate the output in tabular form.

-f file

Write the output to a file ('-' for stdout).

-s subs

Evaluate the output file name from subs, with $_ set to label-of-the-tape. The -a option is equivalent to -s 's/$_/.toc/'.

-w

Separate tapes with form-feeds and display blank lines before totals.

--

Marks the last option so the next parameter is the logfile.

logfile

(use '-' for stdin)

OUTPUT FORMAT

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

USAGE

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.
