  1. Amanda Mitch Collinsworth Cornell Center for Materials Research

  2. Intro • Client/Server style backup system • Free, open source • Runs on most unix

  3. Intro... • A backup manager, not a backup program • Clients run own native backup programs e.g. dump or GNU tar • Can backup Windows via Samba using GNU tar

  4. Features: standard tools • Tapes written using standard software • Can restore without any special software using standard tools: mt, dd, gzip

  5. Features: efficiency • Dumps to holding disk first, allowing multiple dumps in parallel • Dumps then copied from holding disk to tape, allowing streaming tapes to keep streaming

  6. Features: Planner • Not locked into a specific schedule • Planner phase collects estimates and determines what dump levels to run • If a client is down or hung, note in report and keep going

  7. Features: tape balancing • Balances full dumps throughout dump cycle • Backup runs for about same time each day

  8. Features: tape changers • Changers supported via external interface • Easy to add support for a new device

  9. Features: compression • Client or server • Server: software (gzip) or tape hardware

  10. Features: scales well • Easy to add filesystems to backup list • Easy to add tapes to the tape cycle • Easy interactive restores from any client

  11. Features: fails gracefully • Tape errors don’t stop the show • Dumps continue to holding disk • Flush dumps to tape after correcting the error

  12. Amanda: deficiencies • Windows support (smbtar) currently a kludge • No MacOS support prior to OS X • Multiple tape in a run ok, but one dump image can’t span tapes
