I'm a little confused by some of the statistics in the CGI's reports. On
the main "status" screen, one of the items on my system says:
"Pool hashing gives 3 repeated files with longest chain 1"
Does this mean that there are only three files which are the same (and
thus disk space saved due to hashing) on my system? Or just that there
are 3 files whose MD5 sum were the same but are actually different
Also, I had been running backuppc on only one host, and just recently
added a second host. After that host's first full backup, its "home"
screen reports under "File Size/Count Reuse Summary" that there are
11,601 MB total, 4,737 MB existing and 6,864 MB new. Does this mean that
4,737 MB worth of files were identical to those from the other host
already in the pool? (This sounds about right, since I copy a lot of
files to both places).
Also, has anyone looked into generating graphs for the statistics? Or
into editing config files from the CGI interface (maybe using webmin)? I
might be interested in taking either of these on, if I wasn't
