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/local/etc/tarsnap.conf and/or ~/.tarsnaprc; if the two files con-
     flict, 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 `#' character are ignored.

     If a parameter begins with a `~' 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

     humanize-numbers

     include pattern

     insane-filesystems

     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-humanize-numbers

     no-insane-filesystems

     no-maxbw

     no-maxbw-rate-down

     no-maxbw-rate-up

     no-nodump

     no-print-stats

     no-quiet

     no-snaptime

     no-store-atime

     no-totals

     print-stats

     quiet

     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/local/etc/tarsnap.conf configuration file.
