Monitoring Rehydration Jobs

The Transfer Appliance Rehydrator User Interface displays three lists of jobs:

  • Pending jobs containing data that has not yet been rehydrated are displayed in the Jobs Pending pane.
  • Running rehydration jobs are displayed in the Jobs Running pane.
  • Completed jobs are displayed in the Jobs Completed pane.

    Completed jobs display a green checkmark if successful, an orange checkmark if partially successful (for example, if some files didn't rehydrate properly), or a red exclamation point if they failed. Partially successful jobs display a Start icon, which lets you restart them.

    Click a job in any pane to display job details.

Ensuring data integrity

Transfer Appliance Capture Utility calculates a CRC32C hash of each source file when it is captured and preserves this hash for integrity checking during the data rehydration process. During rehydration, the Transfer Appliance Rehydrator calculates and compares the CRC32C hashes of the files being rehydrated with the CRC32C hashes computed when the files were captured. If the checksums do not match, the file is skipped and listed in the skipped file list with the message "Data corruption detected."

Getting rehydration status

To display a summary of the number of files and the amount of data that has been rehydrated, by click the Settings icon in the upper right corner of the screen and select Rehydration Summary. A notification containing this information is also displayed when all data is successfully rehydrated to the destination bucket.

Viewing rehydration job logs

If you experience issues with rehydration jobs, you can download the Rehydrator logs for troubleshooting purposes. To download the logs:

  1. Open the Transfer Appliance Rehydrator User Interface.

  2. Click the Settings icon in the upper right corner of the page.

  3. Select Collect Logs.

    A file named RehydratorLogs_timestamp.zip is downloaded to your default download directory. Use a utility like Zip to extract the file so that you can read it.

What's next

Clean up the appliance to remove resources you no longer need and to request the secure erasure of data from Transfer Appliance.
