NAME

charon.local - remove backup files that exceed a certain age from a local directoy

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

charon.local --dir directory --maxage days (--profile identifier | --all) [--dry-run] [--verbose] [--help]

The program charon.local removes backup archives created by tartarus from a local directory once they reach a certain age and expire. Files that are older than the number of days specified on the command line are considerer candidates for removal unless other, non-expired backups are based on them, so full backups may survive longer than expected.

OPTIONS AND ARGUMENTS

--dir Specify the directory the backups files are stored in.
--maxage n Set the maximum number of days after which a backup is expired.
--profile name Set the profile name to process. This is mandatory unless --all is supplied.
--all When this is set, charon.local operates on all files disregarding the profile name.
--dry-run This option prevents charon from actually deleting files.
--verbose This option makes charon more verbose about the actions made
--help This parameter shows a brief command reference.

EXAMPLE

The following command will remove alle files inside the directory /var/backups/tartarus/ created by Tartarus with the profile name home which exceed the age of 7 days:



    $ charon.local --dir /var/tartarus/backups/ --profile home --maxage 7 --verbose
