bedup: program for deduplication program with additional knowledge of burp
A file deduplication program with additional knowledge of burp storage directories. This program comes with the burp backup and restore package.
- -c path
- Path to config file (default: /etc/burp/burp.conf).
- -g <list of group names>
- Only run on the directories of clients that are in one of the groups specified. The list is comma-separated. To put a client in a group, use the 'dedup_group' option in the client configuration file on the server.
- Print help text and exit.
- Delete any duplicate files found. (non-burp mode only, use with caution!)
- Hard link any duplicate files found.
- -m <number>
- Maximum number of hard links to a single file. (non-burp mode only - in burp mode, use the max_hardlinks option in the configuration file) The default is 10000. On ext3, the maximum number of links possible is 32000, but space is needed for the normal operation of burp.
- -n <list of directories>
- Non-burp mode. Deduplicate any (set of) directories.
- Print duplicate paths. Useful if you want to double check the files that would be hard linked or deleted before running with one of those options turned on.
- Print version and exit.
- By default, bedup will read /etc/burp/burp.conf and deduplicate client storage directories using special knowledge of the structure.
- With '-n', this knowledge is turned off and you have to specify the directories to deduplicate on the command line. Running with '-n' is therefore dangerous if you are deduplicating burp storage directories.
