bedup - program for deduplication program with additional knowledge of
A file deduplication program with additional knowledge of burp storage
directories. This program comes with the burp backup and restore
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.
-h|-? Print help text and exit.
-d Delete any duplicate files found. (non-burp mode only, use with
-l Hard link any duplicate files found.
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.
-v 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.
-V 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.
If you find bugs, please report them to the email list. See the website
