Use this to temporarily stop bbackupd from syncronising or connecting to the store. This specifies a program or script script which is run just before each sync, and ideally the full path to the interpreter. It will be run as the same user bbackupd is running as, usually root.
The script prints either "now" or a number to STDOUT (and a terminating newline, no quotes). If the result was "now", then the sync will happen. If it's a number, then the script will be asked again in that number of seconds.
