Simple snapshot backups
Drivnal is a backup utility created using rsync with a web interface to manage volumes, snapshots and restore files. Similar to Time Machine all snapshots store only the changed files from the previous snapshot and hard links are created for unchanged files. Unchanged files are never stored more then once on the snapshot volume. All snapshots are independent of the other snapshots and previous snapshots are not required to restore files from a snapshot. For more information on how this works read the hard links wiki page.
A python script server.py is included in the root directory to run the server from the root dir. The server will use the unbuilt web files, modification to the server will be automatically reloaded. Vagrant can also be used to safely develop in a virtualized environment, testing the webapp with vagrant will not modify the host system. When developing with vagrant the root directory will automatically sync to the guest system at /vagrant and the port 6500 will be forwarded to allow access to the webapp on host system. The vagrant setup will also setup collectd to monitor performance of guest system. Vagrant stress vm is used for stress testing performance with eight backup volumes.
$ git clone https://github.com/drivnal/drivnal.git $ cd drivnal $ python2 server.py # Open http://localhost:6500/
$ git clone https://github.com/drivnal/drivnal.git $ cd drivnal $ vagrant up testing $ vagrant ssh testing $ sudo drivnal # Open http://localhost:6500/ # Open http://localhost:8080/collectd
To build the webapp the node package manager is required. First install the required node modules then run the available build commands.
