NAME

       gm-move_backups_offsite - move GNUmed backups to elsewhere

SYNOPSIS

       gm-move_backups_offsite

DESCRIPTION

       The  gm-move_backups_offsite  script  can  be  used  to  move backups to another host, IOW
       storing them "offsite" in the loosest sense of the word.

EXAMPLE

       Imagine the following situation:

       1) a laptop running client and database which is
          taken to the office, to patients, etc

       2) a desktop at home with some spare storage

       3) the laptop is occasionally connected to the home
          network and thus has access to the desktop machine

       Given appropriate configuration of gm-move_backups_offsite one could add the following two
       lines to the cron script on the laptop to make sure database backups are replicated to the
       desktop whenever the laptop has access to it:

       @reboot         /usr/bin/gm-move_backups_offsite.sh

       5 0-23 * * *    /usr/bin/gm-move_backups_offsite.sh
