Prepares IDOL Server for a snapshot (hot backup). IDOL Server flushes all files to disk and pauses indexing, so a snapshot of the data can be taken. This index action is most applicable if your IDOL storage is a SAN with disk-snapshot capabilities.


The index ID returned from this index action (for example, INDEXID=41) because you need this ID to restart the paused indexing queue.

After sending the index action, poll IDOL Server with the IndexerGetStatus action until the returned status is -16 (Indexing Paused). You can then perform the snapshot.

After the hot backup completes, restart the index queue, again with the IndexerGetStatus action and with the index ID returned from DREFLUSHANDPAUSE. For example:


You must restart the index queue before you can stop the Content component.



This index action uses port 20001 to instruct the HPE Content Component on host Hume to flush all files to disk and pause indexing.


This index action accepts the following standard index action parameters.

Parameter Description
IgnoreMaxPendingItems Whether to ignore the IndexQueueMaxPendingItems limit for this index action.
