watch backuppc progress


From the Backuppc server you can check witch files backuppc is using at the moment with:
watch "lsof -n -u backuppc | egrep ' (REG|DIR) ' | egrep -v '( (mem|txt|cwd|rtd) |/LOG)' | awk '{print $9}'"
you can also check the running log with:
/usr/share/backuppc/bin/BackupPC_zcat/var/lib/backuppc/pc/desktop2/XferLOG.z
On the client side you can use:
watch "lsof -n | grep rsync | egrep ' (REG|DIR) ' | egrep -v '( (mem|txt|cwd|rtd) |/LOG)' | awk '{print $9}'"

  1. Thanks.. very useful. I created a bash function:

    function watchbupc()
    {
    watch -n 10 "lsof -n | grep rsync | egrep ' (REG|DIR) ' | egrep -v '( (mem|txt|cwd|rtd) |/LOG)' | aw
    k '{print $9}'";
    }

  2. It would be nice to have a "BackupPC_ztail -f" ;-)
