> 13 NDMP - Common Architecture NDMP and the Common Architecture NDMP is an open network protocol that defines common functional interfaces used for these data flows. With NDMP, vendors use common interfaces for common architecture data flows. File system data flows from the file system to the backup device using a common interface, regardless of the platform or device. Control or file meta data is passed to and from the backup software using common interfaces, regardless of the software package. The Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP): NDMP is a network protocol that specifies the communication between the server and the backup software. Communication is defined using a series of defined interfaces. These are XDR encoded messages that are exchanged over a bidirectional TCP/IP connection. The architecture is a client/server model, and the backup software is considered a client to the NDMP server. For every connection between the client on the backup software host and the NDMP host there is a virtual state machine on the NDMP host that is controlled using NDMP. This virtual state machine is referred to as the NDMP server.
> 14 NDMP Terminology –NDMP Network Data Management Protocol. An open protocol for enterprise-wide network- based backup. –NDMP client The application that controls the NDMP server –NDMP host The host that executes the NDMP server application. Data is backed up from the NDMP host to either a local tape drive or to a backup device on a remote NDMP host –NDMP server The virtual state machine on the NDMP host that is controlled using the NDMP protocol. There is one of these for each connection to the NDMP host. This term is used independent of implementation.
