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.
