Scripts for tarsnap backups with periodic on FreeBSD.
All credit goes to ross/zfs-periodic -- I did little beyond
sed s/zfs snapshot/tarsnap/.
Install from ports:
In order to enable periodic tarsnap backups you need
to add these lines to your
daily_tarsnap_backup_enable="YES" daily_tarsnap_backup_paths="/" daily_tarsnap_backup_keep=7 weekly_tarsnap_backup_enable="YES" weekly_tarsnap_backup_paths="/" weekly_tarsnap_backup_keep=5 monthly_tarsnap_backup_enable="YES" monthly_tarsnap_backup_paths="/" monthly_tarsnap_backup_keep=2
Note: The first tarsnap backup can take a very long time. Therefore it might be a good idea to run it by hand and let it finish before turning on these scripts. Further backups will be incremental, so they shouldn't take that long.
