dumplist(5)                                                        dumplist(5)



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




DESCRIPTION
       The  dumplist  file(1,n)  contains information for the backup(8) program. It
       consists of a list of volumes to be archived.

       Each entry in(1,8) the list contains three tab separated  fields:  the  vol-
       umeId  (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 charac-
       ter represents what form of dump to take for that day in(1,8) the  schedule.
       The  length  of the period is the number of characters in(1,8) the schedule.
       For instance, "FIIIIII" means take one full dump followed by  6  incre-
       mentals, whereas "F" means take a full dump every day. For convenience,
       the first character in(1,8) a 7 day schedule refers to Sunday.




EXAMPLE
       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.

       7F000000        IFIIIII         coda_root
       7F000001        IFIIIII         coda_root.i386
       7F000002        IIIFIII         coda_root.project
       7F000003        IFIIIII         coda_root.tmp
       7F000004        IIIFIII         coda_root.usr
       7F000005        IFIIIII         coda_root.misc




NOTES
       In  prior release of coda, the key words "Partition" and "Volumes" were
       used to distinguish between seperate sections of the dump  file(1,n)  needed
       by backup.  dumplist should now only include the Volume backup informa-
       tion and does not need the key word Volume.  Nor is the keyword  Parti-
       tions  needed  any  more  as  backup reads vicetab for backup partition
       information.
