When are Enterprise Vault Trigger Files checked?
When using a trigger file to indicate to Enterprise Vault when items which have been archived are secured (by being backed up or replicated) a question often arises around 'When does this take place?'.
There are actually three mechanism at play here:
- When the storage service starts
- When backup mode on the Vault Store(s) is cleared
- At the interval defined on the partition properties
The latter one is quite interesting, and is shown below:
You can see that the default interval is 60 minutes, but this can be changed up or down by an Enterprise Vault administrator and can be configured on a per-partition basis.
