About NetBackup Self Service data caching process
The NetBackup Adapter caches data about assets, protection, and backup images for improved performance.
Scheduled Tasks run periodically to keep the data up to date. Scheduled tasks include:
Imports the backup images from all backup servers since the last time it ran.
Expires the old backup images.
Calculates the usage.
Calculates the traffic light statuses.
Runs daily at 12:15 A.M. (UTC) by default.
This task processes the computers that are flagged for NetBackup data synchronization. Imports the protection levels and backup images, then recalculates traffic light statuses. Runs every minute by default.
Synchronizes the computers from vCloud Director and cloud assets from NetBackup according to configured imports. This task runs once per day at 12:30 A.M. (UTC) by default, but can be initiated manually.
Imports the images from the last day for all online backup servers. The import includes a 24 hour overlap to get the backups that started but not completed when the last System Sync took place.
Flags the expired images.
Updates the last backup time and calculates traffic light status.
Adding a new backup server does not trigger any independent action in the system. Any new synchronizations or ongoing synchronizations, such as getting backup images or importing policies, now include this new backup server. Older images are not imported without manual intervention. Clickor call the API to import older images. These actions are required for every computer that may have backups.
The Integration Settings that are listed are relevant to the System Sync:
Utilization Retention Period (Months) (NetBackup Adapter integration section)
The period of time which usage data and expired backup images are retained for and the number of months displayed in the charts. After this period the usage data and expired images are deleted in the System Sync.
