The dump package contains both dump and restore. Dump examines files in a filesystem, determines which ones need to be backed up, and copies those files to a specified disk, tape or other storage medium. The restore command performs the inverse function of dump; it can restore a full backup of a filesystem. Subsequent incremental backups can then be layered on top of the full backup. Single files and directory subtrees may also be restored from full or partial backups.
scdbackup is a simplified CD/DVD backup program for Linux. It can back up large amounts of data on one or more media, with no special tools needed for reading the backup. It supports ISO9660 filesystems and afio archives. Its special features are automatic division of data into multiple volumes, verification of write success, incremental backups, a search and restore helper for large ISO9660 backups. CDs get written via cdrecord, wodim, cdrskin, or xorriso. DVDs and BDs get written via growisofs, cdrskin, or xorriso.
amandalogp is a package whose goal is to facilitate the interpretation of the logs and reports produced by Amanda (the Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver). It will parse the mail sent by Amanda (typically as a procmail filter) and send a colorized HTML version of that report which helps monitor a specific set of machines of special interest to some admins.
mysqlblasy is a Perl script for automating MySQL database backups. It uses "mysqldump" for dumping mysql databases to the files sytem. It was written with automated usage in mind. For example, it is silent during operation, and only produces noise on errors/problems. It rotates backups automatically to prevent the backup disk from getting full when the administrator is on vacation (or is lazy).
Rsyncmanager is a daemon designed to simplify the task of coordinating multiple file transfers to or from a machine. It was originally written to serve as the managing hub of a backup system that used rsync to feed in files from many other machines, so that all backups could be run from a single place. It can be used to coordinate any kind of regular file transfer, from a simple hourly copy of an email store from a primary to a backup server, to multiple concurrent rsyncs to multiple machines on varying schedules.
flmkisofs is a very simple program for creating ISO images with the mkisofs program. It can create DVD video ISO images, Apple ISO filesystems, HFS/ISO filesystems, and El Torito or Generic bootable ISO filesystems. It fully supports versions 1 through 3 of the ISO filesystem standard, with RockRidge and Joliet extensions, and has partial UDF support.
Userexitd for TSM is a configurable handler for Tivoli Storage Manager events. It allows an administrator to filter events using regular expressions and run various actions for TSM events, such as sending mail and SNMP traps, writing messages into syslog, and running scripts and programs. This software consists of two parts: a simple shared library (userexit.so), which is dynamically linked to the TSM Server as a user exit and communicates using a socket with the userexitd daemon, which runs as a separate service. The daemon is configured with an XML configuration file.
