Managing Index Snapshots

Overview

In Voyager Search version 1.9.9, the Backup and Restore functionality has been replaced by Snapshots. Similar to Backup and Restore, you can create and import Index Snapshots.  A Snapshot is a zipped copy of the Index information in the [InstallDir]\data\indexV2\v0] directory. You can create a Snapshot from the entire Index or from a saved search. However a Snapshot is more than just the Index - it captures the state of the Index at a specific time, and can include additional information including:

  • Saved searches

  • Security settings

  • Display configuration

  • Appearance settings (Navigo)

  • Indexing settings

  • Discovery settings

  • Metadata (Thumbnails)

You can import Snapshots that you have created as well as Snapshots generated on other Voyager installations. For more information, see:

Managing Snapshots

The Snapshot List shows all of the currently available Snapshots in the Voyager backups folder.

In the Snapshot List, you can Apply, Download or Delete Snapshots.

    • Apply - you can either Merge the Snapshot with the Index or you can completely Replace the Index with the contents of the Snapshot.
      • Replace Index - (Cannot be undone)  - Replaces the current index with the contents of the Snapshot.
      • Merge (Cannot be undone) - Merges the Snapshot into the current index. 
        • DO NOT merge a snapshot if there are users actively searching the index
        • DO NOT merge a snapshot if Voyager is actively indexing content repositories
    • Download (Cannot be undone) - Downloads a Snapshot from a server or shared net resource
    • Delete (Cannot be undone) - Removes it from the Snapshot list and removes it from the backups directory

IMPORTANT: Deleting, Importing and Merging Snapshots CANNOT BE UNDONE
