An AMANDA Backup monitor.
Has anyone seen such an animal?
I'm not sure why you would need it or what it would do.
Amanda does not run as a daemon. So, there is no issue with the daemon failing
and no longer operating.
Amanda runs off cron. Typically, you have amcheck on cron during the day when people are around to
fix things. Then amdump runs off cron during the night. You get reports by email of problems and
reports of the results of the dump.
I suppose, if you didn't want to read your reports, you could have procmail or something route them
all to a folder where something like SEC could scan them and then only generate an alert when there
was something out of the ordinary or a specific problem. But that seems like a lot of effort to
avoid looking at your reports.
