Enabling cmd_cp, link_dest and lazy_deletes on Linux?

Hello,

My rsnapshot process has been running quite faithfully for years and am 
looking for some ways to now trim some time off the process.

I noticed in the rsnapshot config file, 'cmd_cp' is commented out as 
well as 'link_dest' and 'lazy_deletes'.  Is there any harm in enabling 
these features on a volume which did not have them enabled previously?

The current 'rm_rf' process is taking nigh of two hours right now, so 
lazy deletes sounds like a great way to keep the process moving along.

PS: This is on a Linux 14.04 box running SATA RAID-10 (Areca hardware).

Thanks

mount read only question

I'm new user on rsnapshot-discuss group, and hope someone can help to answer this.

I have a local dis mounted  (/etc/fstab)
/dev/sdb1   /snapshot ext4   default  0 0
/snapshot   /root/snapshot   none bind 0 0
127.0.0.1:/root/snapshot   /backup   nfs   ro,soft,intr   0 0

the /root/snapshot is exported to other system to be mount as read-ony (/backup)

Problem I have is that local user can go into /snapshot and able to write/modify data in there.
If I mount /dev/sdb1   /snapshot  ext4 ro   (read-only), then even root cannot write to it.

Question:  how to properly protect this?

You can tell me if there is correct way to set up on your side.  And Thanks in advance

Anthony

Excluding with wildcard

1-I need to exclude certain directories from the remote server, but I have multiple instances.
/backup/USER001/homedir/archive-no-backup
/backup/USER002/homedir/archive-no-backup
/backup/USER003/homedir/archive-no-backup
/backup/USER004/homedir/archive-no-backup
/backup/USER005/homedir/archive-no-backup
/backup/USER....../homedir/archive-no-backup

Would I simply place this in my config?
exclude /backup/*/homedir/archive-no-backup

2-I need to exclude files by wildcard
Anything that has the extension .nobak

Would I simply place this in my config?
exclude *.nobak

3-Any documentation on this? So that I can go crazy with my exclude patterns?

Thanks!

1.3.1 - problem copying new files

Hello. I'm running rsnapshot 1.3.1. I enabled sync_first and ran rsnapshot sync. All directories were synchronized to the local directory properly.

I added some files to one of the backed up directories. rsnapshot has run several hourly snapshots. I'm not seeing the new files anywhere in these backups.

Any idea as to what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks,

Rod

Only include Users Mail-Dir?

Hello,
I am responsible for doing User's home directory backups from a Server 
that hosts ca. 100 Users.
Most of the users have just their maildirs  and maybe a few Megabytes in 
their $home.
But some Users have several hundreds of gigs, and are totally excluded 
from backups.
Until now i do a ncdu (https://dev.yorhel.nl/ncdu) and add those that 
spend more than 10 G by hand to a /etc/rsnapshot.excludes file.
How can I include _everybody's_ maildir, while still being able to 
exclude all the junk and superfluous files.
I would rather not want to exclude all mp3, avi, mp4, wav, vob, etc.
There are just too much of them file endings.

My Question:Is there a maybe an include statement, that includes _all_  
Mailbox directories in all user's $homes, while still otherwise honoring 
the  /etc/rsnapshot.excludes file?

any thoughts about this?

Dirk

Run script after weekly backup

Hello all,

I am wondering if it's possible to run a script (only) after a weekly backup.

My setup is such that I have 24 hourlies, seven dailies, four weeklies, and 12 monthlies. Every week I would like to upload my new weekly backup to backblaze. I could run a script through systemd timed right after the weekly timer, but I want to try to use a rsnapshot-built-in command first if possible.

If you need any more information, let me know.

Thanks!

rsnapshot destination an LTO3 drive

Hi,

In the near future i'll buy an LTO3 drive (LTO3 because i got a lot of LTO3 tapes). And i'm thinking about to archive my backup regularry (once a month) also to LTO3 tapes. So few questions about it:
1. Is rsnapshot able to make copy to tape devices?
2. If yes, can it handle more tapes? I mean the total archive is about 4-6TB, and my tapes are 400GB, so i'll need to change the tapes. I think i'll make the tape backup manually, not started from cron, because while backup i have to be there to change the tapes. But is it possible, that rsnapshot is automatically asking for the next tape, so what i should do is to swap the tape, and than it continous backuping automatically?
Or if not, what should be the best sollution (software) to do this job?

Thank
Br
Laszlo

Moving a rsnapshot repositary to new disk

We need a bigger repository, disk getting full.

I have reread a thread form last year and see that there is no clear way of moving an existing repository to a new disk to insure everything is exactly the same as the original, considering hardlinks etc.

Is there any definitive recommendation?
rsnapshot_copy  /source /destination ?

Thanks!

Well, for a *very* long time it was pretty iffy, that's why. beta
filesystems are not what I tend to go for. It's probably a lot better
now, but performance-wise I'm still pretty sure it's not all that and a
bag of chips...

yep, and this seems to back that up...
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=zfs_linux_062&num=1

which is why I use only ext[24] now. back in the day it was xfs, and
reiserfs for some disks, but not anymore. btrfs and zfs are
indeed interesting, but I was never able to trust my data to them...

moving rsnapshot tree to larger disk


Greetings,

I have two 1TB drives in a software mirror, with a mostly full 500GB lv
for backups. One of those disks failed, so I'm replacing both 1TB
disks with two new 2TB disks in a new mirrored configuration.

What's the best method of moving the 500GB LVM logical volume to the new
2TB mirror set?

Thanks
