Restore a Complete Snapshot using SCP

To restore a snapshot using SCP, the Backup Daemon streams the snapshot to the target snapshot host.

Diagram showing the flow of data when restoring a snapshot via SCP using Ops Manager.
  1. The user selects a snapshot:
    • Through the Ops Manager application:
      1. Click on a snapshot.
      2. Submit their request.
    • Through the API:
      1. Find the cluster to restore.
      2. Create new Restore Job for that cluster.
  2. Ops Manager creates a RestoreJob document.
  3. The Backup Daemon service picks up the RestoreJob document.
  4. Backup Daemon service starts streaming the snapshot in the requested format from the Snapshot Store to the target snapshot host. Each Snapshot Store streams its snapshot components through Ops Manager:
    1. A Blockstore streams Blocks.
    2. A S3 Snapshot Store streams the Blocks.
    3. A File System Store streams the Files.
