LiteSpeed for SQL Server 8.5 - Configure Log Shipping Guide

xp_restore_automated

Restores the most recent full disk and cloud backup created with LiteSpeed and optionally differential and transaction log backups. You can use this extended stored procedure to automate restore operations even if backup files have unique names.

NOTE: A database cannot be restored unless the restore process has exclusive access to the database. No user connections can exist when performing a database restore.

Arguments

Tips:

  • To see the list of accepted arguments and data types for arguments, execute the following:
    exec master.dbo.<procedure_name> show_help

  • To convert the script for use with the command-line utilities, execute the following:
    exec master.dbo.<procedure_name> show_cmd, <xp_arguments>

@affinity

Processor affinity designates specific processors to run LiteSpeed, while not allowing LiteSpeed to run on the remaining processors.

This argument accepts decimal values and hexadecimal values. If a value begins with "0x" it is interpreted as hexadecimal. A positive 64-bit integer value translates to a binary mask where a value of 1 designates the corresponding processor to be able to run the LiteSpeed process.

NOTE: 32-bit Windows is internally limited to a 32-bit mask.

For example, you need to select processors 2, 3, and 6 for use with LiteSpeed. Number the bits from the right to left. The rightmost bit represents the first processor. Set the second, third, and sixth bits to 1 and all other bits to 0. The result is binary 100110, which is decimal 38 or hexadecimal 0x26. Review the following for additional information:

Tip: Before you start tuning the CPU Throttle or Affinity parameters to adjust backup performance, try limiting the number of threads. If you decide to use an affinity value other than default, it is recommended that you limit the threading as well. You may also want to consider using Adaptive Compression to maintain backup performance. For more information, see Adaptive Compression.

@AttachedFile

Specifies filepaths to include in both backup and restore operations. The filepath can be either a single file or a directory. If it is a directory, then LiteSpeed recursively includes all files and subdirectories. All attached files are encrypted and compressed, with all pertinent backup parameters supported. This feature works for disk, tape, TSM, and Double Click Restore as well. You can supply multiple instances of this argument.

When used within the context of a restore operation, the path parameter can be expanded to include a new destination. This form will take the syntax of <file_path> to <new_file_path>. The new filepath can be used to specify a new location but cannot rename a file.

This argument only restores the attached files. It does not restore the database, just the files that were attached to that backup.

NOTES:

  • The original entire directory path need not be supplied (e.g. c: to c:\testadSattsm is allowed).
  • c:\testad to testadr would restore all files in directory c:\testad to c:\testadr.

@dryrun

Shows backups that are candidates for restore at this time, but does not restore them. This argument accepts one of the following values:

  • 0—False (default)
  • 1—True

@encryptionkey

Value used to generate the encryption key for the encryption algorithm. If you do not supply encryption key, then the program will not encrypt the backup. If you use the wrong encryption key, the restore will fail.

Caution: When encrypting data, take care not to lose the encryption key; a backup cannot be restored or recovered without the original encryption key.

Example of key: 'Mypassword'

NOTE: Automated Restore requires that you use the same password for all encrypted backups.

@FileName

Specifies a backup location (e.g. C:\backups\AdventureWorks.bak). This argument accepts network destinations. You can supply multiple instances of this argument to use stripe backups.

@ioflag

Specifies if LiteSpeed should wait and retry the read or write operation on failure. You can define retry options using the following parameters:

  • DISK_RETRY_COUNT—Specifies the number of times that a specific operation will be retried on failure. The default is 4 retries, the maximum allowed setting is 1000.
  • DISK_RETRY_WAIT—Specifies the number of seconds to wait immediately following a failure before retrying. The default is 15 seconds, the maximum allowed setting is 300.

NOTE: This functionality is only available for disk and cloud operations.

For example, to specify a database backup where each failure can be retried once after a 30-second wait:

EXEC master.dbo.xp_backup_database
@filename='c:\test.bkp'
, @database='test'
, @ioflag='DISK_RETRY_COUNT=1'
, @ioflag='DISK_RETRY_WAIT=30'

Network Resilience

@jobp

Specifies an encrypted key. (Similar to @EncryptionKey).

You can use xp_encrypt_backup_key to convert the password (encryption_key) for use with @jobp. The original password (or encrypted key generated by xp_encrypt_restore_key) must be used to restore a backup.

NOTE: Automated Restore requires that you use the same password for all encrypted backups.

@logfilepath

Specifies a location for log files.

@logging

Writes a log file for the operation. This argument accepts one of the following values:

  • 0—Logging off.

  • 1 or any odd value—Logging on. Log file is removed on success.

  • 2 or any even value—Logging on.

The default output directory is C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Quest Software\LiteSpeed\SQL Server\Logs (or C:\ProgramData\Quest Software\LiteSpeed\SQL Server\Logs) (or C:\ProgramData\Quest Software\LiteSpeed\SQL Server\Logs). To log to a different directory add @Trace='logpath=path'.

See Configure Logging in LiteSpeed for information about LiteSpeed logging.

@maxtransfersize

Specifies the largest unit of transfer in bytes to be used between SQL Server and LiteSpeed. The possible values are multiples of 65536 bytes (64 KB) ranging up to 4,194,304 bytes (4 MB). The default is 1048576 (1 MB).

@ProxyHost

The @ProxyHost argument is optional and specifies the name of the proxy host name that is running the proxy server.

note: If the @ProxyHost argument is not defined, then the LiteSpeed core engine checks the local .ini files for the proxy parameters. If the proxy parameters are not detected, then the LiteSpeed core engine connects directly to the proxy servers.

@ProxyLogin

The @ProxyLogin argument is optional and specifies the proxy server login credential.

note: If not defined, then the LiteSpeed core engine checks the local .ini files for the proxy parameters. If the proxy parameters are not detected, then the LiteSpeed core engine connects directly to the proxy servers.

@ProxyPassword

The @ProxyPassword argument is optional and specifies the proxy server password credential.

note: If the @ProxyPassword argument is not defined, then the LiteSpeed core engine checks the local .ini files for the proxy parameters. If the proxy parameters are not detected, then the LiteSpeed core engine connects directly to the proxy servers.

@ProxyPasswordEnc

The @ProxyPasswordEnc argument is optional and specifies the encrypted proxy server password credential.

note: If the @ProxyPasswordEnc argument is not defined, then the LiteSpeed core engine checks the local .ini files for the proxy parameters. If the proxy parameters are not detected, then the LiteSpeed core engine connects directly to the proxy servers.

@ProxyPort

The @ProxyPort argument is optional and contains the port number of the proxy server. The TCP/IP port values can be 1-65535.

note: If the @ProxyPort argument is not defined, then the LiteSpeed core engine checks the local .ini files for the proxy parameters. If the proxy parameters are not detected, then the LiteSpeed core engine connects directly to the proxy servers.

@Read_Write_Filegroups

Specifies a partial backup, which includes all the read/write files in a database: the primary filegroup, any read/write secondary filegroups, and any specified read-only files or filegroups. If the database is read-only, @read_write_filegroups includes only the primary filegroup.

@RestoreAsCompressed

Works in conjunction with @restoreasreadonly, creates a folder if it does not exist, and then compresses it. This argument accepts one of the following values:

  • 0—False (default)
  • 1—True

@RestoreAsReadOnly

Instructs the restore operation to leave the database in read-only mode. This argument accepts one of the following values:

  • 0—False (default)
  • 1—True

Using this option, you can restore a user database into an NTFS compressed folder or restore a tlog to a read-only database in a compressed folder.

NOTES:

  • When using an NTFS-compressed folder for a database, it can only be restored as read-only.
  • You can only use this feature on Windows NTFS file systems.
  • NTFS compression of read-only databases is not supported in SQL Server 2000.

@ReturnDetails

Generates a single-row result set.

  • 0—False (default)
  • 1—True

The result set contains the following details:

Column Name Data Type Description
Database nvarchar (128) Database name.
Operation nvarchar (30) Operation type: Backup or Restore.
Threads tinyint The number of threads used for a LiteSpeed backup.
CompressionLevel tinyint Compression level used for compressing the backup. The compression level can be NULL, if backed up with Adaptive Compression.
AdaptiveCompression nvarchar (max)

Adaptive Compression option used for compressing the backup: 'speed' or 'size'.

MaxTransferSize int Specifies the largest unit of transfer in bytes to be used between SQL Server and LiteSpeed. The possible values are multiples of 65536 bytes (64 KB) ranging up to 4,194,304 bytes (4 MB). The default is 1048576 (1 MB) .
BaseSize int The smallest chunk of memory LiteSpeed attempts to write to disk at any given time.

CPUSeconds numeric (18, 3) Processor time used by the LiteSpeed operation.
ElapsedSeconds

numeric (18, 3)

Duration of the operation.
NativeSize bigint Backup size (in bytes) without LiteSpeed compression.
BackupSize bigint Size of the backup (in bytes).

Tip: In Toad, you can use Group Execute to produce a single result set for several server instances.

@sourcedatabase

Backups of this database are the source for restore.

@sourceserver

Backups created on this instance of SQL Server are the source for restore.

@throttle

Specifies the maximum CPU usage allowed. The argument accepts an integer value between 1 and 100. The default value is 100. This is the percentage of the total amount of CPU usage (across all enabled processors) available.

TIP: Before you start tuning the CPU Throttle or Affinity parameters to adjust backup performance, try limiting the number of threads. If you decide to use an affinity value other than default, it is recommended that you limit the threading as well. You may also want to consider using Adaptive Compression to maintain backup performance. For more information, see Adaptive Compression.

@UseSSL

The @UseSSL argument specifies that the connection uses SSL security. This argument accepts one of the following values:

  • 0—Do not use SSL
  • 1—Use SSL (default)

@with

Each @with argument should be a syntactically complete and correct statement. Please refer to the SQL Server Transact-SQL backup and restore documentation for the syntax and usage.

The supported formats are:

  • @with='PARAMETER'
  • @with='PARAMETER=''accepted_value'''

NOTES:

  • Extended stored procedure arguments are limited to 255 characters. If you need more than 255 characters, use multiple @with arguments.
  • Do not supply the @with parameter if no additional features are required.

This extended stored procedure accepts the following @with parameters:
