    Data Search

    How to retrieve your data?

    Description

    Nodeum app build automaticly a catalog of the files and folder which are managed or unmanged by Nodeum.

    This catalog allows control and traceability of

    • all files stored or managed by Nodeum into workflows orchestration
    • all files from Primary Storage which are set to inventory by Nodeum.  This inventory is required to use the TCO Calculator before using the workflow management.

    Through this interface, the user can easily access any information or data on the storage space :

    • in cache
    • near line archiving space (Data archiving on tapes)
    • cold archive (Data Protection on tapes)
    • cloud and S3 object storage.

     

    It allows for a fast search and find, using both imbedded file and business metadata.

    Also, this provides an easy and secure way into the infrastructure for the external users or clients.

    This can be achieved by utilizing the access rights or as an integration building block for a more eleborate access portal on the front-end.

    This can either be setup as self-service or under stricter control, but in either case enables the client to facilitate their sharing of data straight from within the Nodeum infrastructure.

    Search bar integration

    The search bar is integrated in the catalog, some reports (Data Lifecycle ans metadata). It help you to find easily and faster data.

    You have multiple filter to refine the search :

    Filter to refine the search  
    Keywords  
    From File x size to x size  
    From Change Date xx to   
    From Modification Date xx to  
    From Access Date xx to   
    Container Choose a Container from the list

    Primary Storage and if needed apply some filters to affine the selection (type of storage, pool..)

    • Scanned represents the files inventoried but not used by workflow manager
    • Workflow represents the files managed by workflow into Nodeum

    Secondary Storage and if needed apply some filters to affine the selection (type of storage, pool..)

     
    Path complete the full path of the file
    all levels Only for the path, you see all files and folders 
     
    But you can also search data with special command :
     
    Property list Definition
    file_id_l  
    file_parent_id_l  
    file_name_s  
    file_parent_path_s  
    file_base_name_s  
    file_extension_s  
    file_size_l  
    file_type_i  
    file_change_dt  
    file_modification_dt  
    file_access_dt  
    file_extern_b  
    file_in_cache_b  
    file_in_cache_dt  
    file_out_cache_dt  
    user_owner_id_l  
    user_can_read_b  
    user_can_write_b  
    user_can_execute_b  
    group_owner_id_l  
    group_can_read_b  
    group_can_write_b  
    group_can_execute_b  
    other_can_read_b  
    other_can_write_b  
    other_can_execute_b  
    on_primary_pool_b  
    on_secondary_pool_b  
    prim_id_l  
    prim_name_s  
    prim_container_name_s  
    prim_container_id_l  
    prim_container_comment_t  
    prim_pool_name_s  
    prim_pool_id_l  
    prim_pool_comment_t  
    prim_pool_type_i  
    prim_pool_content_i  
    prim_nas_share_name_s  
    prim_nas_share_id_l  
    prim_nas_name_s  
    prim_nas_id_l  
    prim_nas_type_i  
    prim_nas_comment_t  
    prim_nas_price_d  
    prim_cloud_bucket_name_s  
    prim_cloud_bucket_id_l  
    prim_cloud_bucket_price_d  
    prim_cloud_connector_name_s  
    prim_cloud_connector_id_l  
    prim_cloud_connector_type_i  
       

     

    This information create command in the search that you can complete manually after choosing filter(s).

    Example of Command to afine the keysearch :

    * file_name:test

    * to get only folder : file_type:0 

    *  to get only files : file_type:1  to get only files

    * Checking if file or folder are in cache : file_in_cache:1

    * Checking if files or folder are not in cache : file_in_cache:0

     

    Data Lifecycle Information

    For each Files and Folders, you see its lifecycle.

    Name

    Name of file or Folder

    Path

    Path of the folder or file

    You can see the following details :

    1. Target where the data are stored for NAS/Cloud backup
    2. Volume if the file/Folder is store on Tape
    3. Pool Name 
    4. Rule : name of task runned

    In cache

    The file or folder are save in Active archive workflows.

    The data is in cache save on a specfic container.
