Learn about File System Scans
In this technical brief we will discuss the ways in which differences between systems in a migration or replication data copy are determined. In any data copy, the speed at which differences can be determined before the start of the copy is of critical importance. We will show why scanning the filesystems is the most reliable way to detect changes, and why legacy tools are simply too limited when compared to the modern capabilities of the DobiMiner SuiteTM. We’ll also discuss why file change notification APIs are not a solution to the challenges faced during data copy.
