       amoverview - display file systems processed by Amanda over time

       amoverview [--hostwidth width] [--diskwidth width] [--skipmissed]
		  [--last] [--num0] [--togo0] [--verbose] [--config ] config

       Amoverview displays a chart showing hosts and file systems processed by
       Amanda along with the backup level performed each day.

       See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.

       --config	config
	   Use configuration config.

       --hostwidth width
	   Set host field column width to width	characters instead of 8.

       --diskwidth width
	   Set disk field column width to width	characters instead of 20.

	   Compacts the	output by only printing	stats for the days Amanda
	   actually ran.

	   Outputs the last status of each disk	at the start. Useful for long
	   tapecycles and/or sparse reports.

	   Outputs the number of level 0 dumps for each	disk.

	   Outputs the number of runs until the	last level 0 dump is

	   Amoverview can take a long while on large systems. This option
	   reports intermediate	steps while it is working.

       amoverview is a summary of the output of	" amadmin <config> find	".
       When the	last column of amadmin find contains anything other than "OK",
       amoverview translates this into "E" for that day.

       A number	indicates the level of backup and it succeeded.	An "E"
       indicates an error for that day.	You get	an "E" for all errors, like
       failed to connect, datatimeout, computer	crashed, etc, but also for
       failing to write	to tape.

       You can have an "E" followed by a number	if a filesystem	ran into
       end-of-tape once	(gives an "E", and later that day, you flush it	to a
       second tape (a number: the level, indicating success). If the flush
       failed too, you get a double "EE" for that day.

       You can also have a double code if you have two tapes in	the changer
       and Amanda failed to write to tape the first time because it hit	end of
       tape (resulting in "E0",	for a full, "E1" for an	incremental etc.) or
       twice with error	("EE"),	and may	a successful flush afterwards giving
       maybe "EE0". (Only the latest 2 characters are printed).

       This shows the /home file system	on host2 was backed up at level	3 on
       the 8th,	9th and	10th of	December, had a	full backup on the 11th, a
       level 1 on the 12th and a level 2 on the	13th.
