Schedule

A schedule is the means by which you set aside specific daily time periods for performing disk space reclamation or replication operations. Disk reclamation operations recover unused disk space from QoreStor containers in which files were deleted; replication operations are the process by which the key data is saved only once from multiple devices to minimize excessive or redundant storage of the same data.

This set of QoreStor CLI commands allow you to perform the following tasks on a system:

  • Display existing scheduled Replication and Cleaner (disk space recovery) operations
  • Create new schedules for Replication and Cleaner operations
  • Delete existing scheduled Replication and Cleaner operations
