Unix Tip #4386- March 15, 2014

DAILY BACKUP CHECK


System administrators have to
check by various means whether
the daily backup is sucessfully
completed.

One way is to
maintain a short log file which
will log 4 or 5 lines everytime
the backup is completed.

The latest backup results will be
automatically checked by System
administrator on login, if he adds
these lines at the end of his
.profile file.

tail -5 /PATH/SHORT_LOG_FILE.log
