I am opensim user and simulator operator sharing my notes so its usefull to others.  :

VOCABULARY: my understanding of the following terms.

   GRID: One ore more simulator (SIM) supported by one or more robust.exe instance. 
   OAR: Archiving file for region. 
   PARCEL a subdivision of a region minimum size is 4mx4m= 16 meter square
   REGION a 256mx256m = 65,536 meters square area in opensim
   SIMULATOR: also call SIM one opensim.exe instance running supporting one ore more region(s).
   STANDALONE: The simulator and the supporting  services are all run from one instance of opensim.exe 
   VARREGION: a region with variable dimension. At time of writing limited to square values of multiples of regions (ex. 4x4 = 16 region area) .  


I advocate the use of OAR for backup similarly to any other software file extension. I believe that creators in opensim shall be able to save their work as easily within their region as creating a document in word. For now you can do that with an object inworld and a opensim script command call osConsoleCommand(string command). That script command is high treat level as define in by opensim. Therefor it has to be authorize by simulator operator for parcel owner in the region simulator as follow:

Allow_osConsoleCommand = PARCEL_OWNER or UUID

You can also use the UUID of the simulator operator to enforce treat level and rez the object yourself for your guess to use. This script will automatically save an oar when the prim count change by more then 10 . OAR saving can also be initiated by touch. Here is an exemple of the script for such an object. :

   // 130502
   //oar saver rez on region you are owner 
   //see for instruction
   //130502 add interaction with hud
   // 130120
   integer setup=FALSE;//Chnage to false to complete setup
   string dir="/home/gimisa/Bureau/oar/gimisa/";//the location where to sa ve the oar so your user can access it.
   key id = "598c76d4-a9d0-2fd6-0a81-fc72dca068b5";//default key 
   string idName="gimisa";
   key dtc;//detected avatar
   string region;//region name
   string cmd;//command
   integer ok;//status
   integer pcount;//number of prim cunt
   integer ppcount;//previous prim count
   integer flag=FALSE;//save oar flag
   integer dbug=FALSE;
         ok=osConsoleCommand("change region "+ region);
         string tme=llGetTimestamp();
         llSay(0,"Region: "+ region);
         llInstantMessage(id,"saving oar " +dir+region + "."+tme + ".tgz" );  
         llSay(0, "please wait a few minutes to complete");  
         if(!setup) ok=osConsoleCommand("save oar " +dir+region + "."+ tme + ".tgz"); 
         osMakeNotecard(dir+region + "."+ tme + ".tgz","");//storgage is done by notecard name
         llSetObjectDesc((string)pcount);//count is store in object description  
           "There are " + primCountThisParcel(PARCEL_COUNT_TOTAL) + " total prims on this parcel."); 
           primCountThisParcel(PARCEL_COUNT_OWNER) + " prims are owned by the parcel owner.");
           primCountThisParcel(PARCEL_COUNT_GROUP) + " prims set to or owned by the parcel's group.");
           primCountThisParcel(PARCEL_COUNT_OTHER) + " prims that are not set to the parcel group or owned by the parcel owner."); 
           primCountThisParcel(PARCEL_COUNT_SELECTED) + " prims are selected."); 
           primCountThisParcel(PARCEL_COUNT_TEMP) + " prims are temp-on-rez.");
   string primCountThisParcel(integer flag)
       vector currentPosition = llGetPos();
       pcount=llGetParcelPrimCount(currentPosition, PARCEL_COUNT_TOTAL, FALSE); 
       (string)llGetParcelPrimCount(currentPosition, flag, FALSE);
   { state_entry(){
   touch_start(integer num_detected)
   {  dtc=llDetectedKey(0);
      if ( !(dtc==id | dtc ==llGetOwner())) {
      llSay(0, "sorry but only "+ idName + " can use this");
   sayPrimCount();//say in open chat prim counts of the sim 
   saveOAR();//save oar
   state wait;
     ppcount=(integer) llGetObjectDesc();
     if(pcount==0) return;
     if(ppcount==0){ ppcount=pcount;llSetObjectDesc((string)pcount); }
     if((pcount-ppcount>10 | pcount-ppcount<-10) && !flag){flag=TRUE; llSetTimerEvent(60.*15.);return;}
     if(!(pcount-ppcount>10 | pcount-ppcount<-10) )return;
     sayPrimCount();//say in open chat prim counts of the sim 
     saveOAR();//save oar  
   state wait {
        state_entry(){ llSetTimerEvent(5.0*60.);}
   timer(){ llSay(0,"will appear on FTP when complete");
        llLoadURL(dtc, "OAR FTP SITE", ""); 

You can find a free copy along with a tutorial about oars and the object oarsaver in the little grid I operate for testing purpose call gimisaOS. You can reach it via Hypergrid using your viewer map with search for

Hope it help 150513
