NAME

       bbackupd - Box Backup client daemon

SYNOPSIS

       bbackupd [-DFkqvVT] [-c config-file] [-t tag]

DESCRIPTION

       bbackupd runs on client computers in the background, finding new files to back up. When it
       is time for a backup, bbackupd will connect to the server (bbstored) to upload the files.

       A running bbackupd daemon can be controlled with the bbackupctl command, to make it shut
       down, reload its configuration, or start an immediate backup.

       bbackupd needs to be configured to tell it which files to back up, how often, and to which
       server (running bbstored). See the Client Configuration page for more information. For
       this, you must write a configuration file. You must either place it in the default
       location, or tell bbackupd where to find it.

       You can check the default location with the -h option. The default on Unix systems is
       usually /etc/box/bbackupd.conf. On Windows systems, it is bbackupd.conf in the same
       directory where bbackupd.exe is located. If bbackupd cannot find or read the configuration
       file, it will log an error message and exit.

       bbackupd usually writes log messages to the system logs, using the facility local5, which
       you can use to filter them to send them to a separate file. It can also write them to the
       console, see options below. If bbackupd is not doing what you expect, please check the
       logs first of all.

   Options
       -c config-file
           Use the specified configuration file. If -c is omitted, the last argument is the
           configuration file. If none is specified, the default is used (see above).

       -D
           Debugging mode. Do not fork into the background (do not run as a daemon). Not
           available on Windows.

       -F
           No-fork mode. Same as -D for bbackupd. Not available on Windows.

       -k
           Keep console open after fork, keep writing log messages to it. Not available on
           Windows.

       -q
           Run more quietly. Reduce verbosity level by one. Available levels are NOTHING, FATAL,
           ERROR, WARNING, NOTICE, INFO, TRACE, EVERYTHING. Default level is NOTICE in
           non-debugging builds. Use once to drop to WARNING level, twice for ERROR level, four
           times for no logging at all.

       -v
           Run more verbosely. Increase verbosity level by one. Use once to raise to INFO level,
           twice for TRACE level, three times for EVERYTHING (currently the same as TRACE).

       -V
           Run at maximum verbosity (EVERYTHING level).

       -t tag
           Tag each console message with specified marker. Mainly useful in testing when running
           multiple daemons on the same console.

       -T
           Timestamp each line of console output.
