I've just been looking at xfsdump and all of its options.

It looks like a really good, feature laden backup program.

I want to start calling it every night from cron.

Are there any sample scripts which are designed to be called from cron and do 
something like the following:

Session = Todays date

switch(day-of-week)    {
SUN:  Make a full backup (-L $Session)
MON-SAT:  Make an incremental from the Sunday backup session

use xfsinvutil to verify the inventory and send an e-mail if there are any 

use xfsinvutil to delete any inventory over a year old

Perform any other xfs daily maintenance.  i.e. xfs_check, defrag or whatever if 

Also there any GUI type interfaces for xfsdump/restore.  I'm thinking of the 
ones that HP's Omniback uses.

It would be really nice if restores in particular could be controlled via a 
HTTP interface.
