Describe how to use application with Amanda


This section lists the applications included with Amanda. See the individual man pages for instructions on using them. For complete How-To information, consult the Amanda wiki at http://wiki.zmanda.com.

Defining Applications

An application is defined in amanda.conf(5) as follows:

define application-tool $appconfigname {
   plugin "$pluginname"

and then referenced in a dumptype as

define dumptype $dumptypename {
   program "APPLICATION"
   application "$appconfigname"

Application properties, like Amanda configuration parameters, are insensitive to case, and - (dash) and _ (underscore) may be used interchangeably.

See the individual plugin documentation for properties applicable to each plugin.
