NAME

       amanda-client.conf - Client configuration file for Amanda, the Advanced
       Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver

DESCRIPTION

       amanda-client.conf is the client configuration file for Amanda. This
       manpage lists the relevant sections and parameters of this file for
       quick reference.

       The files <CONFIG_DIR>/amanda-client.conf and
       <CONFIG_DIR>/<config>/amanda-client.conf are loaded.

PARAMETERS

       There are a number of configuration parameters that control the
       behavior of the Amanda programs. All have default values, so you need
       not specify the parameter in amanda-client.conf if the default is
       suitable.

       Lines starting with # are ignored, as are blank lines. Comments may be
       placed on a line with a directive by starting the comment with a #. The
       remainder of the line is ignored.

       Keywords are case insensitive, i.e.  auth and Auth are treated the
       same.

       Integer arguments may have one of the following (case insensitive)
       suffixes, some of which have a multiplier effect:

   POSSIBLE SUFFIXES
       b byte bytes
           Some number of bytes.

       bps
           Some number of bytes per second.

       k kb kbyte kbytes kilobyte kilobytes
           Some number of kilobytes (bytes*1024).

       kps kbps
           Some number of kilobytes per second (bytes*1024).

       m mb meg mbyte mbytes megabyte megabytes
           Some number of megabytes (bytes*1024*1024).

       mps mbps
           Some number of megabytes per second (bytes*1024*1024).

       g gb gbyte gbytes gigabyte gigabytes
           Some number of gigabytes (bytes*1024*1024*1024).

           Note
           The value inf may be used in most places where an integer is
           expected to mean an infinite amount.

           Boolean arguments may have any of the values y, yes, t, true or on
           to indicate a true state, or n, no, f, false or off to indicate a
           false state. If no argument is given, true is assumed.
