Analysis settings

Different settings are available depending on the type of analyzer selected.

Multiple analysis settings are specified using ;.

Analysis setting Description Supported databases
sample Defines the sampling algorithm for selecting data for Sensitive data discovery process. The following values are available:
- top - First N records will be selected from each table. Excellent performance. Use sample=top.
- sample - Records sampling using probabilities will be used. Good performance. Use sample=sample.
- random - Random records will be selected from each table. Low performance, good quality of data. Use sample=random.
DB2 - top, sample, random (default).
Informix - top (default).
SQL Server - top, sample, random (default).
Oracle - top, sample, random (default).
Sybase - top (default).
PostgreSQL - top (default), random.
schemas Only listed schemas will be included in the import. Provide the list of schemas separated with comma (example: schemas=SCOTT,DAVID,JACK). Oracle
includeSystemSchemas Defines if the import of data source will include system schemas and tables. The following values are available:
-true - system schemas and tables will be imported. Use includeSystemSchemas=true.
-false - system schemas and tables won't be imported. Use includeSystemSchemas=false. This is the default setting.
DB2, Oracle, PostgreSQL
countRecords Defines if the import of data source will retrieve the number of records in each table. The following values are available:
-(blank) - count of the records won't be retrieved. Omit the countRecords declaration. This is the default setting.
-stat - reads the database information schema statistics to predict the number of records. Excellent performance but the number of records saved may not be equal to the real number of records. Use countRecords=stat.
-count - reads the exact count of records in the database. Database intensive operation. Use countRecords=count.
DB2, Informix, SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, PostgreSQL
