Attix5 Sailfish R2 Updates 1 & 2 Notes

The latest V7 Sailfish applied across all the BackupVault servers has the following changes:


Storage Platform

  • Restore type shows "VirtualRestore" in reports
  • VirtualRestore cache read request option - when enabled it can speed up repetitive read requests but requires local disk space
  • VirtualRestore Agent optimisation and usability enhancements
  • The Manage Smallfiles task pauses Streaming Backups instead of failing the backup
  • Smallfile container default threshold reduced to 80 KB (prevents excessive memory usage)
  • Roll-up optimization - .Global files are deleted immediately
  • Roll-up skips past accounts that are busy with any type of restore
  • Default retention period to keep deleted accounts on the mirror increased from 48 to 96 hours (Update 2)


  • Faster restore index downloads and account reconnects (seconds instead of minutes)
  • Faster restore tab switching
  • Windows Event log integration (Windows Application Logging of successful backups, failures and warnings)
  • SMTP SSL/TLS e-mail support for SE Client reports/notifications - STARTTLS option
  • Faster size calculation - Used for backup process, manual size check of backup selections and the Health Check
  • Find function improved. ";" can be used for multiple strings. Wildcards now accepted in the search
  • Java 1.7 update (from 1.7.0_13 to 1.7.0_51)


  • SIMS Plugin (Schools Information Management System) now included in the plugin installer
