Linux-based backup utility

Project description


This is a command-line tool and library for managing filesystem backups on a local network. Each incremental backup is made available according to rotation rules defined in this 2004 article by Mike Rubel.

Reliability and simplicity of this are inherently provided by rsnapshot and rsync, which are used without modification. What this tool adds is storage of metadata in a local SQL database, along with functions to store and verify checksums for files in each saveset.

Example crontab and configuration files can be found here under etc/ and cron/.
