info about interval (daily, weekly, etc.)
May 01, 2011 12:40PM
Hi all :-)

I discover only now this beautiful package!

I read some info and I'm unsure about the parameter "interval"

I'd like do 24 backups every days and keeps its for 12 or 24 months.

is it correct something like this?

interval daily 1
interval weekly 4
interval monthly 12 (or 24)

thanks!

Pol

The interval configuration confuses a lot of people. To try to clear it
up, the parameter has been renamed to "retain" in rsnapshot 1.3.1. As
the man page explains, it just specifies how many backups of each level
are retained. You are responsible for invoking rsnapshot on the desired
schedule. If you want hourly backups retained for 12 months, you would
use a single level "hourly" with 8760 (= 12 months / 1 hour) backups
retained:

retain hourly 8760

Do you want to keep all 24 backups per day for 365 days?

Then I'd prefer

interval hourly 8760
# called every hour

You can identify them by their time stamp.

Viele Gruesse!
Helmut

thank for the reply :-)

I can't upgrade rsnapshot (v. 1.3.0 debian old-stable) on this production
server.

I need understand how apply "retain hourly 8760" in 1.3.0 version.

thanks!

Pol

BTW, are these interval strings fixed or can I just call it
interval whatever 4
?

Just use the old name of the parameter, "interval", as Helmut showed.

You can indeed call the interval/retain strings whatever you want.

Just be consistent between the names in the rsnapshot config and
the names you use when invoking rsnapshot (usually from cron).
