|-c path||Path to config file (default: /etc/burp/burp.conf).|
|-g <list of group names>|
|Only run on the directories of clients that are in one of the groups specified. The list is comma-separated. To put a client in a group, use the dedup_group option in the client configuration file on the server.|
|-h|-?||Print help text and exit.|
|-d||Delete any duplicate files found. (non-burp mode only, use with caution!)|
|-l||Hard link any duplicate files found.|
|Maximum number of hard links to a single file. (non-burp mode only - in burp mode, use the max_hardlinks option in the configuration file) The default is 10000. On ext3, the maximum number of links possible is 32000, but space is needed for the normal operation of burp.|
|-n <list of directories>|
|Non-burp mode. Deduplicate any (set of) directories.|
|-v||Print duplicate paths. Useful if you want to double check the files that would be hard linked or deleted before running with one of those options turned on.|
|-V||Print version and exit.|
By default, bedup will read /etc/burp/burp.conf and deduplicate client storage directories using special knowledge of the structure.
With -n, this knowledge is turned off and you have to specify the directories to deduplicate on the command line. Running with -n is therefore dangerous if you are deduplicating burp storage directories.
If you find bugs, please report them to the email list. See the website <http://burp.grke.net/> for details.
