Gets checksums of objects on a pillar according to a SLA.
The GetChecksums operation will typically be used in connection with integrity check and possibly to verification of a put operation.
The GetChecksums operation covers both ordinary checksums and checksums with salts. However checksums with salts cannot work on checksum pillars.
The figure illustrates the which components that are involved from the System overview, as well as operation messages.
- GetChecksums used for integrity checks
- Requesting Data Sending Ids via Data Transmission
- Checksum Pillars only responds if type matches — Checksum Pillars only responds if the checksum type requested matches the type of checksums on the pillar
