Monitoring the Disk

Monitor phase indicator for disk transfer

This topic describes the tasks to be done after the data transfer is complete the disk has been shipped to Oracle. The Project Sponsor role typically performs these tasks. See Roles and Responsibilities.

Tracking the Disk Shipment

When Oracle has processed the transfer disks associated with a transfer package, the status of the transfer package changes to Processed. When Oracle has shipped the transfer disks associated with a transfer package, the status of the transfer package changes to Returned.

Tip

You can use the Console or the Data Transfer Utility to check the status of a transfer package.

Reviewing the Upload Summary

Oracle creates upload summary log files for each uploaded disk. These logs are placed in the bucket where the data was uploaded to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The upload summary file compares the disk's manifest file to the contents of the target Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage bucket after file upload.

The top of the log report summarizes the overall file processing status:

P - Present: The file is present in both the disk and the target bucket
M - Missing: The file is present in the disk but not the target bucket. It was likely uploaded and then deleted by another user before the summary was generated.
C - Name Collision: The file is present in the manifest but a file with the same name but different contents is present in the target bucket.
U - Unreadable: The file is not readable from the disk
N - Name Too Long: The file name on disk is too long and could not be uploaded

Complete file upload details follow the summary.

This screenshot shows an example of the data transfer log file.

Closing the Transfer Job

Typically, you would close a transfer job when no further transfer job activity is required or possible. Closing a transfer job requires that the status of all associated transfer packages be returned, canceled, or deleted. In addition, the status of all associated transfer disks must be complete, in error, missing, canceled, or deleted.

Tip

You can use the Console or the Data Transfer Utility to close a transfer job.

What's Next

You have completed the process of setting up, running, and monitoring the disk-based data transfer. After the disk contents is successfully migrated to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, your physical disk is erased and returned to you.

If you determine that another disk-based data transfer is required, repeat the procedure from the beginning.
