dumplist - List of volumes to be archived by the Coda backup mechanism


The dumplist file contains information for the backup(8) program. It consists of a list of volumes to be archived.

Each entry in the list contains three tab separated fields: the volumeId (groupId), the schedule for full and incremental dumps, and a comment used to facilitate reading the output of the backup program. The schedule contains a number of "F" and "I" characters. Each character represents what form of dump to take for that day in the schedule. The length of the period is the number of characters in the schedule. For instance, "FIIIIII" means take one full dump followed by 6 incrementals, whereas "F" means take a full dump every day. For convenience, the first character in a 7 day schedule refers to Sunday.


The following does a full backup of coda_root, coda_root.i386, and coda_root.tmp on Monday while it does a full backup of coda_root.project and coda_root.usr on Wednesday. It uses /vicepa/backup and /usr/codabackup/backup to store the dump files.

In prior release of coda, the key words "Partition" and "Volumes" were used to distinguish between seperate sections of the dump file needed by backup. dumplist should now only include the Volume backup information and does not need the key word Volume. Nor is the keyword Partitions needed any more as backup reads vicetab for backup partition information.
