filter the archive through gzip
print total bytes after processing the archive; with an argument - print total bytes when this SIGNAL is delivered; Allowed signals are: SIGHUP, SIGQUIT, SIGINT, SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2; the names without SIG prefix are also accepted
Consider for example the command from this answer:
tar --totals=USR1 -czf output.tar input.file Total bytes written: 6005319680 (5.6GiB, 23MiB/s)
Does this print the total bytes before or after passing them to
"bytes written" implies that it's the number of bytes written to disk, but I have currently a running job where tar claims double the number of bytes written than the target destination
tar.gz file is taking up according to
Hence, I assume that it is actually "bytes that would have been written" but I cannot find documentation on that behaviour.
I am running
tar (GNU tar) 1.27.1.
