ruba

Use case, backuping my domUs with plain images and scp'ing them once a week elsewhere.

This started as a pretty simple script, but I got hooked and got plenty ideas about backups. It's still messy in my head, we'll see where it goes.

./ruba /dev/loldisk sudo lvcreate –snapshot –size 5G –name loldisk_backup /dev/loldisk sudo dd if=/dev/loldisk_backup of=/tmp/loldisk.img bs=64k sudo lolcat /tmp/loldisk.img /dev/ceiling_cat sudo rm /tmp/loldisk.img sudo lvremove /dev/loldisk_backup

TODO

  • lvcreate -L parameter takes MB as default unit whereas it's bytes here

  • think about crafting a framework with all of that

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
