Repository Copy, Back Up, and Restore Processes

Repository Copy, Back Up, and Restore Processes

Large repositories can contain a large volume of log and historical information that slows down repository service performance. This information is not essential to repository service operation. When you back up, restore, or copy a repository, you can choose to skip the following types of information:
  • Workflow and session logs
  • Deployment group history
  • Metadata Exchange (MX) data
By skipping this information, you reduce the time it takes to copy, back up, or restore a repository.
You can also skip this information when you use the
pmrep
commands.
