nsr_data - Data formats for NetWorker Save and Recover


       All  data  in  the  NetWorker system is encoded using the eXternal Data
       Representation (XDR) standard.  When files are  passed  between  client
       (see  save(1)  and  recover(1)) and server (see nsrd(1)) and media (see
       nsrmmd(1)), they are represented as a savestream, which is encoded as a
       linked  list  of  savefiles.   There are currently 2 different savefile
       formats.  A magic number at the start of each file indicates  the  par-
       ticular type of the following savefile thus allowing for self identify-
       ing savestreams containing more than one savefile type.  Logically each
       savefile  consists  of  some  header information followed by file data.
       The original savefile1 format uses  a  doubly  wrapped  set  of  client
       attributes  describing the file attributes and the file data is encoded
       as a bucketlist.  The newer savefile2 format uses an  alternate  singu-
       larly wrapped client attributes with the file data encoded as a bucket-
       less succession of self describing sections each containing a  type,  a
       length,  and  bytes of data.  The file data section of a file is termi-
       nated by an ending section with a type of 0 (NSR_ASDF_END).

       The XDR language description of  the  OS  independent  portion  of  the
       savestream data structures is shown below.

       const NSR_IDLEN = 1024;            /* length of file id */
       const NSR_MAXNAMELEN = 1024;       /* max length of file system name */
       const NSR_MAXCATTRSIZE = 8192;     /* max size of client specific attributes */
       const NSR_MAXBUCKETDATA = 8192;    /* max size of file bucket's data (w/o slop) */
       const NSR_MAXBUCKETSIZE = 9000;    /* max total size of file bucket (w/ slop) */
       const NSR_MAXCLNTSIZE = 16384;     /* max size of a clntrec */

       typedef opaque fileid<NSR_IDLEN>;            /* file identifier */
       typedef string nsrname<NSR_MAXNAMELEN>;      /* file name type */
       typedef opaque clientattr<NSR_MAXCATTRSIZE>; /* client attributes */
       typedef opaque wraposaverec<NSR_MAXCLNTSIZE>;/* wrapped osaverec */
       typedef nulong_t checksum;                   /* 4 bytes for checksum */
       typedef u_long sfid_t;                       /* savefile id (offset) */

       struct id {
             string id_str<>;             /* id string */
             id *id_next;                 /* next such structure */

       struct asmrec {

             asmrec *ar_next;             /* next such structure */

       const NSR_MAGIC1 = 0x09265900;     /* older format using buckets & ssaverec's */

       struct osaverec {
             nsrname sr_filename;         /* name of this file */
             fileid sr_fid;               /* client specific file id */
             nulong_t sr_savetime;        /* savetime of this saveset */
             wraposaverec sr_wcr;         /* a wrapped osaverec */

        * File data for older style savestream is logically
        * expressed as a linked list of file buckets.
       struct bucketlist {
             bucket bl_bucket;
             bucketlist *bl_next;

        * XDR description of the original savefile1 format.
       struct savefile1 {

        * New savestream defines and structures.

       const NSRAPP_BACKUP = 1;           /* backup application name space */
       const NSRAPP_HSM = 2;              /* HSM application name space */
