Sun StorageTek 5800 System Client API Reference Manual


The query integrity time is a time such that all store index exceptions from before that time have been resolved. There is an ideal query integrity time, which is the time of the oldest still-unresolved store index exception: an ideal implementation when asked for the query integrity time would always report this ideal value. In actual implementation, the reported query integrity time might be hours or even days earlier than the ideal query integrity time, depending on how far the ongoing system healing has progressed.
