@jkowalski on further thought I would like an email sent to myself even when the snapshot and verify run successfully. I was therefore thinking of doing something along the following lines.
Using your crontab example commands in a bash shell. Sending any log output to some destination file that has a datestamp as part of the filename. Then checking if the file exists after the verify and create commands have finished running. If it does send an ‘Error’ email otherwise a ‘Success’ email.
My question is: Does changing the log-level to warning have any effect on the output to the logfiles created by kopia in ~/cache/kopia? The documentation seems to suggest that there is a separate default for the logfile output as opposed to STDOUT…but just want to double check.
Also can you think of anything that may generate a STDERR output from the cron commands?
Thanks in advance for your help.
