       amreport - generate a formatted output of statistics for an Amanda run


       amreport [config] [-i] [-M address] [-l logfile] [-f outputfile]
                [-p postscriptfile] [-o configoption]...


       Amreport generates a summary report of an amanda(8) backup run. If no
       configuration name is specified, amanda.conf is read from the current

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


           Name of the configuration to process.

           Don’t email the report.

       -M address
           Mail the report to address instead of the mailto value from

       -l logfile
           Name of the log file to parse to generate the report. If a log file
           is not specified, it defaults to the file:


       where logdir is the log directory defined in amanda.conf.

       -f outputfile
           Normally, amreport sends the report via e-mail to the mailto user
           as defined in the amanda.conf file. If outputfile is specified,
           then the report is put in outputfile.

       -p postscriptfile
           Send the postscript output to the file postscriptfile instead of to
           the lpr(1) command. This option has an effect only if the lbl-templ
           directive is specified in amanda.conf.

       -o configoption
           See the "CONFIGURATION OVERRIDE" section in amanda(8).


       Amanda can print postscript labels describing the contents of tape(s)
       written in a run. The labels are designed to be folded and inserted
       into the tape case along with the tape or hole punched and put in a
       3-ring binder. Various label templates are provided to format data for
       different tape sizes.

       The information printed varies slightly between label templates due to
       size constraints. Labels contain one line for each host/file-system
       pair and may also contain the file number on the tape, the level of the
       dump, the original size of the dump and the size of the (possibly
       compressed) tape file.

       Add the lbl-templ parameter to the tapetype definition in amanda.conf
       to enable labels. If you don’t add this line to your tapetype
       definition, amreport will not print tape labels.

       You may use the remap=I>printer keyword in amanda.conf to print to
       other than the system default printer.


       Amanda provides label templates for the following tape types. These are
       pretty generic labels and should be easy to customize for other tape
       types or particular site needs.

           * ExaByte 8mm tapes
           * DAT 4mm tapes
           * DLT tapes
           * 3-ring binder

       The 3-ring binder type is the most generic. It may be used to make a
       hardcopy log of the tapes.
