Thorough “housekeeping” – Index comparison in PBS NAI

It has recently become possible for administration entries from ADK and NAI to be compared in the PBS Nearline Analytic Infrastructure (NAI) and non-assignable NAI indices deleted.

Indices of archive files that have been set to invalid via transaction SARA or those of archive files that have been flagged for archiving can simply be deleted using a new function. This also applies for the indices of archive files that have been set to invalid by the PBS Archive Data Review (ADR) because the complete content of the file consists of duplicates.

PBS ADR verifies duplicates in archive files. However, the NAI database is request-based, meaning that each archive file and index type is given a management line, a so-called request. For this reason, corresponding indices cannot be selectively deleted, but instead the complete request for the respective archive file must be deleted. The options “Create new request”, and “Start index generation” are used to regenerate indices afterwards without duplicates.

Often, indices are created without respective requests in administration tables as a result of system copies that are often performed in test or QS systems. The new function also deletes all indices that do not have a request.

See the manual for more details.
