       amcheckdump - check the results of an Amanda dump


       amcheckdump [--timestamp|-t timestamp] [--verbose] [-o configoption...] config


       Amcheckdump verifies Amanda dump images by reading them from storage volume(s) and
       verifying that the images can be parsed by the appropriate application (if available). For
       example, a GNUTAR image is passed to GNU Tar for parsing, and any errors (e.g., corrupt or
       missing data) are noted.

       The application runs on the most recent dump or, if --timestamp is specified, on the most
       recent dump with that timestamp. Note that the verification is local to the Amanda server;
       if the dump application is not available, or is configured differently on the server than
       on the client, then the verification will most likely fail.

       If a changer is available, it is used to load the required tapes. Otherwise, the
       application interactively requests the tapes.

       See the "CONFIGURATION OVERRIDE" section in amanda(8) for information on the -o option.
