I would like to know a bit more about the files stored in the /var/lib/ossim/backup/ folder.
From my understanding there are 4 types of files:
delete files: Are these the delete queries executed during the backup process to clear the database? Why are they stored?
Insert files: Are these the insert files created for ossim to use in case of a restore? Are they essencial for the restore to work?
If there is an update that changes the database arquitecture, are these files updated?
I am asking because I´ve been asked here at work to maintain database backups for 5 years. I was thinking about useing the Netbackup system to do this but it would move these files to a separate server and would not be accessable by ossim and I do not know if this would cause any impact on the OSSIM backup/restoration process.
