Snapraid Runner Script

This script runs snapraid and sends its output to the console, a log file and via email. All this is configurable.

It can be run manually, but its main purpose is to be run via cronjob/windows scheduler.

It supports Windows, Linux and macOS and requires at least python3.7.

How to use

  • If you don’t already have it, download and install the latest python version.
  • Download the latest release of this script and extract it anywhere or clone this repository via git.
  • Copy/rename the
    snapraid-runner.conf.example
    to
    snapraid-runner.conf
    and edit its contents. You need to at least configure
    snapraid.executable
    and
    snapraid.config
    .
  • Run the script via
    python3 snapraid-runner.py
    on Linux or
    py -3 snapraid-runner.py
    on Windows.

Features

  • Runs
    diff
    before
    sync
    to see how many files were deleted and aborts if that number exceeds a set threshold.
  • Can create a size-limited rotated logfile.
  • Can send notification emails after each run or only for failures.
  • Can run
    scrub
    after
    sync

Scope of this project and contributions

Snapraid-runner is supposed to be a small tool with clear focus. It should not have any dependencies to keep installation trivial. I always welcome bugfixes and contributions, but be aware that I will not merge new features that I feel do not fit the core purpose of this tool.

I keep the PRs for features I do not plan on merging open, so if there's a feature you are missing, you can have a look at the open PRs.
