Manual Reference Pages - DUMPLIST (5)
dumplist - List of volumes to be archived by the Coda backup mechanism
The dumplist file contains information for the backup(8) program. It consists of a list of volumes to be archived.
Each entry in the list
contains three tab separated fields: the volumeId (groupId), the schedule for full
and incremental dumps, and a comment used to facilitate reading the output of the
backup program. The schedule contains a number of "F" and "I" characters. Each
character represents what form of dump to take for that day in the schedule. The length
of the period is the number of characters in the schedule. For instance, "FIIIIII"
means take one full dump followed by 6 incrementals, whereas "F" means take a full
dump every day. For convenience, the first character in a 7 day schedule refers to Sunday.
The following does a full backup of coda_root, coda_root.i386, and
coda_root.tmp on Monday while it does a full backup of
coda_root.project and coda_root.usr on Wednesday. It uses
/vicepa/backup and /usr/codabackup/backup to store the dump files.
7F000000 IFIIIII coda_root
7F000001 IFIIIII coda_root.i386
7F000002 IIIFIII coda_root.project
7F000003 IFIIIII coda_root.tmp
7F000004 IIIFIII coda_root.usr
7F000005 IFIIIII coda_root.misc
In prior release of coda, the key words "Partition" and "Volumes" were
used to distinguish between seperate sections of the dump file needed
by backup. dumplist should now only include the
Volume backup information and does not need the key word Volume. Nor
is the keyword Partitions needed any more as backup reads
vicetab for backup partition information.
