Starting a NetBackup connection to a cloud application
To talk to a cloud application, NetBackup uses a web interface that the cloud server makes available. That interface is called a WebSocket endpoint.
A NetBackup process automatically requests a connection to the WebSocket endpoint according to a preset schedule. By default, the connection process runs every 60 seconds. That process is controlled by the
connectionInfo.period= property in the
nbwss.properties file on the NetBackup master server. Whenever the connection process runs, it updates (adds or deletes) NetBackup connections to endpoints. For example, if a new endpoint has been added, the process checks if NetBackup is already connected to another endpoint in the same server group. If NetBackup is not connected to another endpoint in the same server group, the process initiates a connection to the new endpoint.
