This BRBACKUP command option prints additional information to the log file.

Input syntax: -o|-output dist|time[,time|dist]

Default value: The BRBACKUP detail log is written in normal form. See BRBACKUP Detail Log.

Using this option causes the detail log to be extended as follows:

·        dist: The SAP utility generates information about the distribution of the files for backup among the volumes (tapes or disks) to be used.

·        time: The SAP utility generates additional time stamps that enable you to determine the time required for the individual operations. Among other things, you can then determine the pure backup time for a file. After a successful backup, this information is included in list form for all backed up files.
