If your storage bucket contains different types of content, or if you want to scan the content stored in the bucket, you can use the optional Discover Bucket feature to display information about its contents.
In many cases, bucket discovery is not needed. You can proceed to the object group setup for the files that you plan to index and search. For a comprehensive list of data/log formats, see Acceptable Data Formats.
Bucket discovery is not required before creating object groups. Discovery is a lens into your Cloud object storage bucket.
To discover a bucket:
- Filter for and/or select the desired bucket.
- Click Discover Bucket.
The Discovering message appears while the process is running.
The duration of the discovery process depends on the size and volume of your bucket data.
After the discovery process is complete, the system displays a comprehensive bucket content report showing a high-level aggregate view of the data. This report provides general file information including:
- Total Number of Files
- Total File Size
- Bucket Creation Date
- File Type
- Total Size
- Average Age of the File
- Number of Files
- Approximate Number of Duplicates
- File Type Distribution Pie Chart
Review the summary information to learn about file contents and types, storage sizes and file ages, and duplicate files count. The page also displays other information like events (conditions), indexes, and partitions. The information can help you to see if the bucket and its contents are as expected.
