Data recovery in Elliptics

As you know, Elliptics includes built-in utility for data synchronization both within one replica and between number of replicas. In this article I describe different modes in which synchronization could be run, how it works and give details on situations when it could be used.

dnet_recovery is the main utility for data synchronization in Elliptics. It is distributed with the package elliptics-client. dnet_recovery supports 2 modes: `merge` and `dc`. `merge` is intended for data synchronization within one replica and `dc` – for data synchronization between number of replicas. Each of the modes can automatically search keys for synchronization or use keys from dump file.

Most of described bellow can be found at recovery doxygen documentation. All doxygen documentation will be published onĀ doc.reverbrain.com soon.
