README for seivot
Seivot is a program for benchmarking backup software. It was written for developing Obnam, but it should be possible to adapt it to also support other on-disk backup solutions, such as rsync or rdiff-backup.
./seivot --log=foo.log --log-level=debug \ --initial-data=1m --incremental-data=1m --generations=2 \ --output=foo.seivot
--use-sftp-repository options to simulate
backups over a network. This happens over localhost, so it's hardly a
realistic simulation, but it at least measures the overhead of using
SFTP over direct file access. You need to have ssh configured for
localhost access, either via a passwordless key or ssh-agent.
