Class ShardBackupMetadata

  • public class ShardBackupMetadata
    extends Object
    Represents the shard-backup metadata file.

    The shard-backup metadata file is responsible for holding information about a specific backup-point for a specific shard. This includes the full list of index files required to restore this shard to the backup-point, with pointers to where each lives in the repository.

    Shard backup metadata files have names derived from an associated ShardBackupId, to avoid conflicts between shards and backupIds.

    Not used by the (now deprecated) traditional 'full-snapshot' backup format.
