amanda-client.conf is the client configuration file for Amanda. This manpage lists the relevant sections and parameters of this file for quick reference. The files <CONFIG_DIR>/amanda-client.conf and <CONFIG_DIR>/<con fig>/amanda-client.conf are loaded.
There are a number of configuration parameters that control the behav‐ ior of the Amanda programs. All have default values, so you need not specify the parameter in amanda-client.conf if the default is suitable. Lines starting with # are ignored, as are blank lines. Comments may be placed on a line with a directive by starting the comment with a #. The remainder of the line is ignored. Keywords are case insensitive, i.e. auth and Auth are treated the same. Integer arguments may have one of the following (case insensitive) suf‐ fixes, some of which have a multiplier effect: POSSIBLE SUFFIXES b byte bytes Some number of bytes. bps Some number of bytes per second. k kb kbyte kbytes kilobyte kilobytes Some number of kilobytes (bytes*1024). kps kbps Some number of kilobytes per second (bytes*1024). m mb meg mbyte mbytes megabyte megabytes Some number of megabytes (bytes*1024*1024). mps mbps Some number of megabytes per second (bytes*1024*1024). g gb gbyte gbytes gigabyte gigabytes Some number of gigabytes (bytes*1024*1024*1024). tape tapes Some number of tapes. day days Some number of days. week weeks Some number of weeks (days*7).
