bup-server - the server side of the bup client-server relationship
bup server is the server side of a remote bup
session. If you use bup-split(1) or
bup-save(1) with the -r
option, they will ssh to the remote server and run
bup server to receive the transmitted objects.
There is normally no reason to run
bup server yourself.
- In this mode, the server checks each incoming object against the idx files
in its repository. If any object already exists, it tells the client about
the idx file it was found in, allowing the client to download that idx and
avoid sending duplicate data. This is bup-server's
- In this mode, the server will not check its local index before writing an
object. To avoid writing duplicate objects, the server will tell the
client to download all of its .idx files at the start of
the session. This mode is useful on low powered
server hardware (ie router/slow NAS).
- Activate dumb server mode, as discussed above. This file is not created by
default in new repositories.
Part of the bup(1) suite.
