Configuration

Filesets

Source

When creating filesetz in the configuration, it sometimes can be useful to be able to create a list of directories of files on the file.

The option File= supportes inline scripts that allow you to do that:

...
Fileset {
  ....
  File = "\\|find /export/home -type f -name '.somefile' \
                      -exec dirname {} \;"
  ...

mysql> SELECT VolumeName, VolStatus FROM Media WHERE LastWritten < 'yyyy-mm-dd';

  • Prune those volumes base on the retention days:
mysql> SELECT CONCAT('prune yes volume=', VolumeName) FROM Media WHERE LastWritten < 'yyyy-mm-dd';
*prune yes volume=hq-windows-large-full-9332
The current Volume retention period is: 1 month
*prune yes volume=hq-windows-large-incr-9373
The current Volume retention period is: 14 days
*prune yes volume=hq-windows-small-incr-9376
The current Volume retention period is: 14 days
*prune yes volume=hq-windows-large-incr-9377
The current Volume retention period is: 14 days
*prune yes volume=hq-windows-large-incr-9378
The current Volume retention period is: 14 days
*prune yes volume=hq-windows-large-incr-9384
