Put borgmatic output into log file.
sudo borgmatic --verbosity 1 » borg_log.txt 2&>1
Very minimal output ends up in the log file despite nothing printing to stdout. Basically all that ends up in the log file is that the repo + index + consistency check started and no issues were found. Would at least like to include the size before/after deduping.
borgmatic version: v1.3.5
borgmatic installation method: standlone binary from https://github.com/cmarquardt/borgmatic-binary
Borg version: 1.1.10
Python version: Python 2.7.13
operating system and version: debian 9 stretch
A couple of things:
Without the redirection, I see the archive + deduped size output just fine (I'm assuming this is from the underlying --stats option you spoke of). Somehow or other it doesn't get redirected properly though. I'm running debian atm. I'll try out 1.3.6 when I get a chance, but I'd like to know why redirection doesn't work if possible.
Hmm, on a second look, the problem may be your redirection operator. I think that this:
sudo borgmatic --verbosity 1 >> borg_log.txt 2&>1
Should be this instead:
sudo borgmatic --verbosity 1 >> borg_log.txt 2>&1
Note the subtle difference in the last three characters.
Alternatively, if you're using bash, this might accomplish the same thing:
sudo borgmatic --verbosity 1 &>> borg_log.txt
Oh shoot, sorry about that! I'm pretty sure I copied the redirection operator from somewhere and have been using it in several scripts... time to fix those lol. Thanks.
No worries. I'm glad it was that simple!
No due date set.
