       #  - set the empty string to back up no hosts (at that frequency)
       #  - use the special string "_all" to back up everything
       #
       hourly=""
       daily=_all
       weekly=""
       monthly=""

       #
       # Set report=hourly|daily|weekly|monthly to control frequency of
       # email reports.  (Hourly is probably a bit much!)  Only effective
       # if email is not "".
       #

       #
       # Set prune=hourly|daily|weekly|monthly|never to control frequency of
       # automated pruning of old backups
       #
