Setting Recovery Type

Setting Recovery Type

Node recover type is set with the POST /controller/setRecoverType HTTP method and URI.

HTTP method and URI

Sets the recovery type to be performed for a node. Recovery options are delta node recovery or full recovery. The recovery type for a node is set after the node is failed over and before rebalance. Rebalance is required to apply the recovery.

POST /controller/setRecoveryType      

The progress of setting recovery type can be tracked just like rebalance. After the data is persisted to disk and replicas are up-to-date, the node is put into the failed over state.


POST /controller/setRecoveryType


The following Curl request example sets delta node recovery.

curl -u Administrator:password -d 'otpNode=ns_1@' -d 'recoveryType=delta' \
