       amoverview - display file systems processed by Amanda over time


       amoverview [--hostwidth width] [--diskwidth width] [--skipmissed] [--last] [--num0]
                  [--togo0] [--verbose] [--config ] config


       Amoverview displays a chart showing hosts and file systems processed by Amanda along with
       the backup level performed each day.

       See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.


       --config config
           Use configuration config.

       --hostwidth width
           Set host field column width to width characters instead of 8.

       --diskwidth width
           Set disk field column width to width characters instead of 20.

           Compacts the output by only printing stats for the days Amanda actually ran.

           Outputs the last status of each disk at the start. Useful for long tapecycles and/or
           sparse reports.

           Outputs the number of level 0 dumps for each disk.

           Outputs the number of runs until the last level 0 dump is overwritten.

           Amoverview can take a long while on large systems. This option reports intermediate
           steps while it is working.


       amoverview is a summary of the output of " amadmin <config> find ". When the last column
       of amadmin find contains anything other than "OK", amoverview translates this into "E" for
       that day.

       A number indicates the level of backup and it succeeded. An "E" indicates an error for
       that day. You get an "E" for all errors, like failed to connect, datatimeout, computer
       crashed, etc, but also for failing to write to tape.

       You can have an "E" followed by a number if a filesystem ran into end-of-tape once (gives
       an "E", and later that day, you flush it to a second tape (a number: the level, indicating
       success). If the flush failed too, you get a double "EE" for that day.

       You can also have a double code if you have two tapes in the changer and Amanda failed to
       write to tape the first time because it hit end of tape (resulting in "E0", for a full,
       "E1" for an incremental etc.) or twice with error ("EE"), and may a successful flush
       afterwards giving maybe "EE0". (Only the latest 2 characters are printed).


       This shows the /home file system on host2 was backed up at level 3 on the 8th, 9th and
       10th of December, had a full backup on the 11th, a level 1 on the 12th and a level 2 on
       the 13th.
