I’m using Duplicati to send backups…
- From: Windows source computers
- To: a destination Linux server over SSH
I know that there’s options to send backup reports via email and to a HTTP server… just wondering if there is any way to have the backup reports simply saved into the destination folder? It would be over SSH in this case, but wouldn’t need to be limited to SSH destinations.
This would be much easier to setup/maintain I think.
My backup archives are encrypted, but I don’t care if the reports are encrypted or not.
Is there any way to do this? Or is it an option that could be added?
Email can be a bit unreliable when the source computers are connecting through different ISPs etc (I know you can use mailgun etc, but it’s further complication, and still less reliable that a standard file being written to disk)
And HTTP requires you to set up & maintain a custom server or use a 3rd party service… in addition to actually setting up your storage destination server, which obviously everyone has to do already, so we could “kill two birds with one stone” by sending the reports to the destination storage server itself.
Just saving the reports to the destination folder would be really handy I think. I’m using SSH, but it could just as easily work for over most of the other protocols I think.
Separate question: can the reports be saved in JSON? It would makes them very easy to parse with some simply scripting in any language. Also with pretty print enabled, they’re quite human readable anyway.
