Switches to stop the auto-backup

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

Switches to stop the auto-backup

Post by whitling2k »

I'm running on a Pi-0W with precious few resources and several other web-based apps. I tightly manage backups and redundancy across all applications served by it, and I wondered if there is a switch to disable CumulusMX's in-built backups to save a few extra cpu and copy cycles per day.

These files have 'ballooned'* to over half the volume of the overall CMX directory size, and that with logfiles going back to 2014.

*still only ~25mb out of a 45MB overall directory size! Nothing to fall out about :-D

Cheers
