       property string string+
           Adds a global property for this client host, useful for e.g., Application API plugins.
           The first string is the property name, the following strings are the property values

APPLICATION SECTION

       The amanda-client.conf file may define multiple types of application. The information is
       entered in a application section, which looks like this:
       define application "name" {
           application-option application-value
           ...
       }

       name is the name of this type of application.

       The setting from an application is merged with the dle setting if the name is the same as
       the client-application-name from the dle or if the client-application-name from the dle is
       not set and the name is the same as the plugin from the dle.

       The application options and values are:

       client-application-name string
           Default: none. Not use on the client.

       comment string
           Default: none. A comment string describing this application.

       plugin string
           No default. Must be set to the name of the program. This program must be in the
           $libexecdir/amanda/application directory on the client. If set, it must be the same as
           the dle plugin.

       property [append] [priority] string string+
           No default. You can set property for the application, each application have a
           different set of property. Both strings are quoted; the first string contains the name
           of the property to set, and the others contains its values.  append keyword append the
           values to the list of values for that property.  priority keyword disallow the setting
           of that property on the server.

SCRIPT SECTION

       The amanda-client.conf file may define multiple types of script. The information is
       entered in a script section, which looks like this:
       define script "name" {
           script-option script-value
           ...
       }

       name is the name of this type of script.

       The setting from a script is merged with the dle setting if the name is the same as the
       client-script-name from the dle or if the client-script-name from the dle is not set and
       the name is the same as the plugin from the dle.

       The script options and values are:

       client-script-name string
           Default: none. Not used on the client.

       comment string
           Default: none. A comment string describing this script.

       plugin string

           dle plugin.

       execute-where client
           Default: client. Value can't be changed.

       execute-on execute_on[,execute_on]*
           No default. When the script must be executed, you can specify many of them:

           pre-dle-amcheck
               Execute before the amcheck command for the dle.

           pre-host-amcheck
               Execute before the amcheck command for all dle for the client.

           post-dle-amcheck
               Execute after the amcheck command for the dle.

           post-host-amcheck
               Execute after the amcheck command for all dle for the client.

           pre-dle-estimate
               Execute before the estimate command for the dle.

           pre-host-estimate
               Execute before the estimate command for all dle for the client.

           post-dle-estimate
               Execute after the estimate command for the dle.

           post-host-estimate
               Execute after the estimate command for all dle for the client.

           pre-dle-backup
               Execute before the backup command for the dle.

           post-dle-backup
               Execute after the backup command for the dle.

           pre-recover
               Execute before any level is recovered.

           post-recover
               Execute after all levels are recovered.

           pre-level-recover
               Execute before each level recovery.

           post-level-recover
               Execute after each level recovery.

           inter-level-recover
               Execute between two levels of recovery.

       property [append] [priority] string string+
           No default. You can set property for the script, each script have a different set of
           property. Both strings are quoted; the first string contains the name of the property
