The stager

To collect the pertinent logical log records, the stager performs the following steps:
  1. Scans only the backed-up logical logs

    The stager reads the backed-up logical log files and assembles complete log records.

  2. Tests the logical log records

    Any log record that is not applicable to the tables being restored is rejected.

  3. Inserts the logical log information in to a table

    If the logical log record is not rejected, it is inserted into a stage table.
