Tiger, dirvish and dangling symlinks

Dale Amon
I am working on a backup box with a huge disk capacity
that is being used as a dirvish incremental backup for
a bunch of systems.

This of course means there are just thousands upon
thousands of 'apparently' danglying symlinks since
the backups are 'out of context' as it were.

This causes tiger to output useless emails about
them and waste space in security logs about them.

So is there a way to simply tell tiger to not look
at certain disk drives? It seems rather silly to have
it wasting time processing 30-40TB of backups when all
that is needed is to monitor the actual system disks.

Ad Astra,
Dale Amon

IIRC You can use the Tiger_FSScan_NonLocal variable to have Tiger skip those
filesystems that are not considered "local" or you can disable (in
/etc/tiger/cronrc) the checks that will process the filesystem starting from
/ (check_perms, find_files, check_devices

Thanks. I'll look into that!
