Currently I am using Dirvish to backup a handful remote machines, both Linux and Windows to local disks. But Dirvish hasn't seen any updates for many years and it has a couple of small annoyances (e.g. deleting the last successful backup when it expires by age).
Dirvish features I currently use include (and thus require):
- pre-client - to dump databases to flat files on remote system
- post-server - for basic analysis of changed files in backup set
- connect to remote clients using rsync over ssh
Are there any alternatives for Dirvish available that are actively being maintained? Now I did a Google search myself and I did find one alternative, but I am looking for your experience; does the package work for you and why?
