I'm working on writing a perl script that will backup volumes in my
AFS cell by dumping them to a NFS share. I'm running this as a
RunBeforeJob script using some of the variable expansion features of
bacula to fill in the arguments to the script. I have a question
regarding the behavior of the %s (since time) expansion:
I'm doing full backups the 1st sunday of the month, differentials on
sunday and incrementals every other day. If on the 2nd sunday of the
month (1st differential of the month) will %s be expanded to the date
of the full backup on the first sunday or will it be expanded to the
date of the last job that ran (the incremental that ran saturday)?
I could not find any definitive answer in the manual and couldn't
find it right away when looking at the source.
Also is there any timeframe of when (or even if) the format of the
timestamp will be user configurable? I saw some comments in lib/
btime.c about it and I for one would find this very handy.
