New Version of bustatus is available


SERVICE INFORMATION: SCS Computing Facilities is pleased to announce that a new version of bustatus has been released for Linux. In the past this command was only able to be run by users with root privileges; but with the new version the bustatus command can now be run by the local user (without root privileges) on individual machines.

The bustatus command is used to check the status of backups for individual Linux machines.


Please contact the SCS Help Desk at x8-4231 or send mail to with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your attention,

SCS Help Desk
