NAME

       amanda-scripts - Configuring and using the Script API

DESCRIPTION

       The Script API is a flexible system for invoking user-supplied scripts
       at various points in the execution of Amanda. This manual page
       describes the operation and configuration of the API. For help writing
       Script API scripts, see http://wiki.zmanda.com/index.php/Script_API.

SCRIPTS

       This section lists the scripts included with Amanda, see the individual
       man page for instructions on using them. For complete How-To
       information, consult the Amanda wiki at http://wiki.zmanda.com.

       o   amzfs-snapshot(8), - create/destroy zfs snapshot.

       o   script-email(8), - send email.

       Script properties work just like application properties: they are
       insensitive to case, and - (dash) and _ (underscore) may be used
       interchangeably.

SCRIPTS OUTPUT PROPERTY

       A pre-dle-amcheck, pre-dle-estimate or pre-dle-backup executed on the
       client can output property on stdout that are sent to the application.
       If the output line matches "PROPERTY str1 str2", Amanda sets a property
       called "str1" by the value of "str2", that property is sent to the
       application.
