./sysutils/rsnapshot, Filesystem snapshot utility

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.4.3nb2, Package name: rsnapshot-1.4.3nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

rsnapshot is a filesystem backup utility based on rsync.

Using rsnapshot, it is possible to take snapshots of your filesystems
at different points in time. Using hard links, rsnapshot creates the
illusion of multiple full backups, while only taking up the space of
one full backup plus differences. When coupled with ssh, it is possible
to take snapshots of remote filesystems as well.

Log message:
Update sysutils/rsnapshot to 1.4.3

VERSION 1.4.3
- Restore rsync error code 23 as an important warning.
- Non-LVM backup source breaks after LVM backup source.

VERSION 1.4.2
- Fix double 8 bit shift regression in #65.

VERSION 1.4.1
- Properly capture rsyncs exitcode.

VERSION 1.4.0
- Fix --rsh command line option
  The --rsh option of rsync got errornously quoted (Debian Bug #743310)
- Define traps to unmount LVM parts after fail
  If you use LVM snapshots and rsnapshot fails, rsnapshot will unmount and
  remove the snapshot, too.
- Bail on failing cmd_(pre|post)exec
  If one of those commands fails, rsnapshot will exit with exit code != 0
- Capture output from rsync and print/log if level is >=4
- rsnapshot-diff: Fixed removed files reported as addition (+ mark)
- Introduction of backup_exec resource for running unix commands interspersed
  with backup and backup_script jobs.
- check for SIGPIPE, mainly in case cron fails when trying to mail
  (this is probably why rsnapshot dies mysteriously if it outputs when
  called by cron on a system which does not have mail working).
- When snapshot_root does not exist, check existence of parent directories.
- include_conf `command` now strips backticks before execution (bug fix
  based on suggestion from David Osborn).
- Ignore extraneous output from lvremove command.  (patch by Tim Connors)
- Allow linux_lvm_cmd_* in config file to have options also.
- Allow `backticks with options` in include_conf.
- rsnapshot-diff: Add -s option to show size of each file.
