Plugin command to clean up a storage plugin after backup.
plugin_executable cleanup_plugin_for_backup plugin_config_file local_backup_dir
gpbackup invokes the cleanup_plugin_for_backup plugin command on the master and all segment hosts when a gpbackup operation completes, both in success and failure cases.
The cleanup_plugin_for_backup command should perform the actions necessary to clean up the remote storage system after a backup. Clean up activities may include removing remote directories or temporary files created during the backup, disconnecting from the backup service, etc.
- The absolute path to the plugin configuration YAML file.
- The local directory on the Greenplum Database host (master and segments) to which gpbackup wrote backup files.
The cleanup_plugin_for_backup command must exit with a value of 0 on success, non-zero if an error occurs. In the case of a non-zero exit code, gpbackup displays the contents of stderr to the user.
