dupReport Version 2.2.2 has been moved to the pre_prod branch on GitHub. This version adds a “report interval” option for managing & reporting backup jobs that run at intervals other than once a day. If a backup from a source/destination pair is not seen while scanning the emails but the number of days since the last backup is less than the backupinterval value, the program will simply print a notification message rather than the standard warning message. For example (from the ‘bydest’ report):
The first line represents a backup that missed its daily execution. The second line represents a backup that only runs every 5 days.
See the readme file for more details on how this works.
There were a couple of different ways to go with this feature, so I’m interested in having folks try it out & see if there is a better way to do it.
