Amanda produces several types of log files, with distinct purposes.

  • Debug logs ({server,client}/config/prog.YYYYMMDDHHMMSS.debug) contain debugging messages that are useful for finding bugs in Amanda.
  • Amdump logs (amdump.N or amflush.N) contain a description of amdump's actions, parsed by amstatus. Amflush has a similar mechanism.
  • Trace logs (log.YYMMDDHHMMSS.N or log.YYYYMMDD.N) contain specially formatted log messages about a run which can later be read by other Amanda applications to find out what Amanda did during the run.
  • Syslog may also contain errors from inetd or xinetd, or hardware errors indicating problems with hard drives, tape changers, tape drives, etc.
