backuplogs(5)                                                    backuplogs(5)



NAME
       backuplogs.<DDMMMYY> - Format of a Coda backup log file(1,n)




DESCRIPTION
       A  backuplog  is  created each day with day, month and year appended to
       the name "backuplogs".  The  file(1,n)  backuplogs  contains  the  following
       information collected by the backup and BSD dump programs:

             the cloning process of each replica that makes up a Volume


             the dump of each replica to local tape


             Attempts  to retry failed operations such as unable to contact a
              server


             Successfully volumes (incrementals are  marked,  otherwise  full
              backups are assumed


             Lists any volumes that failed to be backed up


             Lists any partially backup volumes (e.g if(3,n) a replica was missed)


             BSD Dump statistics


             the disk image file(1,n) names dumped to tape


       This file(1,n) may be used to  identify  successful,  partially  successful,
       partially  failed,  or  complete  failures of a backup to occur.  It is
       also used to identify the replica file(1,n) names that make up a  Volume  to
       used  by merge(1,8)(8) to restore a replica.  Also note that the BSD restore
       command is used to retrieve files from a  tape  listed  in(1,8)  the  backu-
       plogs.<date>  file.  Restore should be done via restore(1) command pro-
       vided by the BSD-DUMP facility.  The the most recent incremental(s) are
       then merged with the most recent full backup of a volume.
