FileRegion Class

Represents a region of a file to be archived. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.IO.Log
Assembly:  System.IO.Log (in System.IO.Log.dll)
public ref class FileRegion sealed

A LogArchiveSnapshot object contains the information necessary to generate a consistent backup of the data in a LogStore. The actual data is contained in the enumerable collection of FileRegion objects returned by the ArchiveRegions property. Each FileRegion instance represents a sequence of bytes in a file that must be archived.

The following example demonstrates how to archive a log store to XML using the LogStore and FileRegion classes.

class LogBackup
{
    static void ArchiveToXML(LogStore logStore, string fileName)
    {


        LogArchiveSnapshot snapshot = logStore.CreateLogArchiveSnapshot();
        {
            XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter(fileName, System.Text.Encoding.ASCII);
            writer.WriteStartElement("logArchive");

            foreach (FileRegion region in snapshot.ArchiveRegions)
            {
                writer.WriteStartElement("fileRegion");
                writer.WriteElementString("path",
                                          region.Path);
                writer.WriteElementString("length",
                                        region.FileLength.ToString());
                writer.WriteElementString("offset",
                                          region.Offset.ToString());

                using (Stream dataStream = region.GetStream())
                {
                    byte[] data = new byte[dataStream.Length];
                    dataStream.Read(data, 0, data.Length);

                    writer.WriteElementString("data", System.Convert.ToBase64String(data));
                }

                writer.WriteEndElement();
            }

            writer.Close();
            logStore.SetArchiveTail(snapshot.LastSequenceNumber);
        }
    }

    static void RestoreFromXML(string fileName)
    {
        using (XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader(fileName))
        {
            reader.ReadStartElement("logArchive");
            while (reader.IsStartElement())
            {
                string path;
                long length;
                long offset;
                path = reader.ReadElementString("path");
                length = System.Int64.Parse(reader.ReadElementString("length"));
                offset = System.Int64.Parse(reader.ReadElementString("offset"));
                string dataString = reader.ReadElementString("data");
                byte[] data = System.Convert.FromBase64String(dataString);
                FileStream fileStream;
                using (fileStream = new FileStream(path,
                                              FileMode.OpenOrCreate,
                                              FileAccess.Write))
                {
                    fileStream.SetLength(length);
                    fileStream.Position = offset;
                    fileStream.Write(data, 0, data.Length);
                }
            }
            reader.ReadEndElement();
        }
    }
}
