bup-server - the server side of the bup client-server relationship
bup server is the server side of a remote bup session. If you use
bup-split(1) or bup-save(1) with the -r option, they will ssh to the remote
server and run bup server to receive the transmitted objects.
There is normally no reason to run bup server yourself.
- In this mode, the server checks each incoming object
against the idx files in its repository. If any object already exists, it
tells the client about the idx file it was found in, allowing the client
to download that idx and avoid sending duplicate data. This is
bup-server's default mode.
- In this mode, the server will not check its local index
before writing an object. To avoid writing duplicate objects, the server
will tell the client to download all of its .idx files at the start of the
session. This mode is useful on low powered server hardware (ie
- Activate dumb server mode, as discussed above. This file is
not created by default in new repositories.
