Viewing Swift object metadata

You can perform an object metadata lookup to confirm that object copies are being made as intended and placed in the correct locations.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. Select ILM > Object Metadata Lookup.
  2. Type the Swift container/object-name in the Identifier field, and click Look Up.

    The object metadata lookup results appear. This page lists the following types of information:

    • System metadata, including the object ID, the object name, the name of the container, the tenant account name or ID, the logical size of the object, the date and time the object was first created, and the date and time the object was last modified.
    • For replicated object copies, the current storage location of each copy, including the name of the grid node and the full path to the disk location of the object.
    • For erasure-coded object copies, the current storage location of each fragment, including the name of the grid node and the type of fragment (data or parity).
    • For segmented objects, a list of object segments including segment identifiers and data sizes. For objects with more than 100 segments, only the first 100 segments are shown.
    • All object metadata in the unprocessed, internal storage format.
