Amanda::Changer::disk


NAME

Amanda::Changer::disk


DESCRIPTION

This changer operates within a root directory, specified in the changer string, which it arranges as follows:

  $dir -|
        |- drive0/ -|
        |           | data -> '../slot4'
        |- drive1/ -|
        |           | data -> '../slot1'
        |- data -> slot5
        |- slot1/
        |- slot2/
        |- ...
        |- slot$n/

The user should create the desired number of slot$n subdirectories. The changer will take care of dynamically creating the drives as needed, and track the current slot using a "data" symlink. This allows use of "file:$dir" as a device operating on the current slot, although note that it is unlocked.

Drives are dynamically allocated as Amanda applications request access to particular slots. Each drive is represented as a subdirectory containing a 'data' symlink pointing to the "loaded" slot.

See the amanda-changers(7) manpage for usage information.
