I am backing a file system with ufsdump. In order to gain space in the remote file system I backup to stdout then pipe the output to compress. I find is more efficient that backuping up and then running gzip.
so basically i have this command:
/usr/sbin/ufsdump 0uf - / | compress -c -v > /backup/$HOST/root-$DATE-full.dump.Z
I would like to save the diagnostic information of ufsdump to a file for monitoring and checking out if the dump completed successfully. but this does not seem to be possible with the command above? please note that if I backup to a file instead of standard output i can capture the diagnostics of ufsdump without problem.
