svn-fast-backup(1)          General Commands Manual         svn-fast-backup(1)

       svn-fast-backup - very fast backup for Subversion fsfs repositories.

       svn-fast-backup [-q] [-k{N|all}] [-f] [-t] [-s] repos_path backup_dir

       svn-fast-backup  uses rsync snapshots for very fast backup of a Subver-
       sion fsfs repository at repos_path to backup_dir/repos-rev, the  latest
       revision  number  in  the repository.  Multiple fsfs backups share data
       via hardlinks, so old backups are almost free, since a  newer  revision
       of a repository is almost a complete superset of an older revision.

       This  is  good for replacing incremental log-dump+restore-style backups
       because it is just as space-conserving and even  faster;  there  is  no
       inter-backup  state  (old  backups are essentially caches); each backup
       directory is self-contained.  It has the same command-line interface as
       svn-hot-backup(1) (if you use --force), but only works for fsfs reposi-

       svn-fast-backup keeps 64 backups by default and deletes  backups  older
       than these; this can be adjusted with the -k option.

       -h, --help
              Shows some brief help text.

       -q, --quiet
              Quieter-than-usual operation.

       -k, --keep=N
              Keep a specified number of backups; the default is to keep 64.

       -k, --keep=all
              Do not delete any old backups at all.

       -f, --force
              Make a new backup even if one with the current revision exists.

       -t, --trace
              Show actions.

       -s, --simulate
              Don't perform actions.
