       amstatus - display the state of an Amanda run


       amstatus [--file amdumpfile] [--[no]detail] [--[no]summary] [--[no]stats]
                [--[no]locale-independent-date-format] [--config] config


       Amstatus gives the current state of the Amanda run specified by the config configuration.
       If there is no active Amanda running, it summarizes the result of the last run. It may
       also be used to summarize the results of a previous run.

       See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.


       All options may be abbreviated to the shortest non-ambiguous sub-string. If no options are
       given, everything is displayed.

       [--config] config
           Specify the Amanda configuration you want to display the state for.

       --file amdumpfile
           Specify an alternate file instead of the amdump or amflush file.

           Display a detail of each dles.

           Display a summary of the state of the run.

           Display statistics about active-time of taper and dumpers.

           Output the date in a locale independent format. The format is the same executing: date
           +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S %Z'


       The exit code of amstatus is the ORed value of:
        0  = success
        1  = error
        4  = a dle failed
        8  = Don't know the status of a dle (RESULT_MISSING in the report)
        16 = tape error or no more tape
