PostgreSQL Subclient Properties (Storage Device)

Use this dialog box to establish the storage device related settings on the selected subclient.

Deduplication

Use this tab to establish the options for deduplication on the subclient. It indicates whether deduplication for the subclient is enabled or disabled, and if enabled whether the signature generation (a component of deduplication) is performed on the client or MediaAgent computer.

Note that deduplication is supported on disk storage devices. So the deduplication options are applicable only if the subclient is associated with a Storage Policy containing disk storage.

Enable Deduplication

When selected, enables the deduplication for the subclient.

On Client

Click to enable signature generation on the client computer.

On MediaAgent

Click to enable signature generation on the MediaAgent computer.

Note that if client-side deduplication is enabled, then this preference is overridden and signature generation is performed on the client by default.
