Zimbra Backup Plus - Smartscan

Zimbra Backup Plus - Smartscan

What is the Smart Scan?

The Smart Scan is the main coherency check for the health of your backup system. It's "Smart" because it operates only on accounts modified since the last SmartScan, hence improving system performance and decreasing scan time exponentially.

By default a SmartScan is scheduled to be executed each night (if "Scan Operation Scheduling" is enabled in the Zimbra Backup Plus section of the Zimbra Suite Plus Administrative Zimlet). Once a week, on a day set by the user, a Purge is executed together with the SmartScan to clear Zimbra Backup Plus's datastore from any deleted item that exceeded the retention period.

How does it work?

The Zimbra Backup Plus engine scans all the items on the Zimbra Datastore looking for items modified after the last SmartScan updating any outdated entry and creating any item not yet present in the backup while flagging as deleted any item found in the backup and not in the Zimbra Datastore.

Finally, it updates all Configuration metadata in the backup, so that Domains, Accounts, COSs and Server Configurations are stored.

When is a Smart Scan executed?

  • When the Zimbra Backup Plus module is started.
  • Daily, if the Scan Operation Scheduling is enabled in the Zimbra Suite Plus Administration Zimlet.
  • When the Real Time Scanner is re-enabled via the Zimbra Suite Plus Administration Zimlet after being previously disabled.
