Repairing Backups

Vertica can reconstruct backup manifests and remove unneeded backup objects.

Performing a Quick Repair

The quick-repair task rebuilds the backup manifest, based on the manifests contained in the backup location.

Use the following form to perform a quick repair task:

$ vbr -t quick-repair -c configfile.ini 

Performing Garbage Collection

The collect-garbage task rebuilds your backup manifest and deletes any backup objects that do not appear in the manifest. You can include the optional --report-file parameter to output results to a delimited JSON file.

Use the following form to perform a garbage collection task:

$ >vbr -t collect-garbage -c configfile.ini --report-file=path/filename
