TARSNAP.CONF(5)		      File Formats Manual	       TARSNAP.CONF(5)

NAME
       tarsnap.conf - configuration file for tarsnap(1)

DESCRIPTION
       The tarsnap.conf	file is	read by	the tarsnap(1) utility and specifies
       default options which will be ignored if	the options in question	are
       specified at the	command	line.  Options may be specified	in /usr/lo-
       cal/etc/tarsnap.conf and/or ~/.tarsnaprc; if the	two files conflict,
       the user's local	configuration takes precedence.

       The tarsnap.conf	file(s)	contain	lines consisting of a case-sensitive
       option name and zero or one parameters depending	upon the option.
       Empty lines and lines starting with a Ql	# character are	ignored.

       If a parameter begins with a Ql ~ character, it will be replaced	by the
       value of	the HOME variable (the current user's home directory).

       The following options may be specified:

	    aggressive-networking

	    cachedir cache-dir

	    checkpoint-bytes bytespercheckpoint

	    disk-pause X

	    exclude pattern

	    force-resources

	    humanize-numbers

	    include pattern

	    insane-filesystems

	    iso-dates

	    keyfile key-file

	    lowmem

	    maxbw

	    maxbw-rate

	    maxbw-rate-down

	    maxbw-rate-up

	    nodump

	    normalmem

	    no-aggressive-networking

	    no-config-exclude

	    no-config-include

	    no-disk-pause

	    no-force-resources

	    no-humanize-numbers

	    no-insane-filesystems

	    no-iso-dates

	    no-maxbw

	    no-maxbw-rate-down

	    no-maxbw-rate-up

	    no-nodump

	    no-print-stats

	    no-quiet

	    no-retry-forever

	    no-snaptime

	    no-store-atime

	    no-totals

	    print-stats

	    quiet

	    retry-forever

	    snaptime file

	    store-atime

	    totals

	    verylowmem

       Each option is handled the same way as the corresponding	--option; see
       tarsnap(1) for more details.  Note that the normalmem and no-* options
       are only	useful in the user-specific ~/.tarsnaprc configuration file,
       at which	point they act to override options set in the global /usr/lo-
       cal/etc/tarsnap.conf configuration file.

FILES
	    /usr/local/etc/tarsnap.conf
		   The system global tarsnap.conf configuration	file.  Parame-
		   ters	specified here only take effect	if they	are not	speci-
		   fied	via the	current	user's local configuration file	or via
		   the command line.

	    ~/.tarsnaprc
		   The tarsnap.conf configuration file for the current user.
		   Parameters specified	here take effect unless	they are spec-
		   ified via the command line.
