Backup progress ¶
By default, borgmatic runs proceed silently except in the case of errors. But if you'd like to to get additional information about the progress of the backup as it proceeds, use the verbosity option:
borgmatic --verbosity 1
This lists the files that borgmatic is archiving, which are those that are new or changed since the last backup.
Or, for even more progress and debug spew:
borgmatic --verbosity 2
Existing backups ¶
Borgmatic provides convenient flags for Borg's list and info functionality:
Scripting borgmatic ¶
To consume the output of borgmatic in other software, you can include an
--json flag with

output formatted as JSON.
