dar_slave - disk archive slave
dar_slave [options] [<path>/]source
dar_slave reads an archive and listens for dar orders on standard
input, sending asked parts of the archive on standard output.
Source is the basename of the archive to read. By default, dar_slave
uses standard input and output to communicate with a dar process, which
may be running on the local host or on a remote host. It is possible to
change the behavior of dar_slave to use named pipe instead of standard
input and output
-h Displays help usage.
-V Displays version information.
-i <filename> reads the orders from the named file instead of
standard input. In most cases the filename will be
a named pipe.
-o <filename> sends the data to the named file <filename> instead
of standard output. In most cases the filename will
be a named pipe.
-E <string> string is a command to be launched between slices.
See dar(1) man page (same option) for more
-Q Do not display any message on stderr when not
launched from a terminal (for example when launched
from an at job or crontab). Remains that any
question to the user will be assumed a ’no’ answer,
which most of the time will abort the program.
-j when virtual memory is exhausted, as user to make
room before trying to continue. By default, when
memory is exhausted dar aborts.
dar_slaves exists with the same codes as dar does, see dar(1) man page.
Any signal sent to dar_slave will abort the program immediately, there
is no way to have a proper termination before the end of the process
