Restoring a parallel backup in parallel requires an ndb_restore binary from an NDB Cluster distribution version 8.0.16 or later. The process is not substantially different from that outlined in the general usage section under the description of the ndb_restore program, and consists of executing ndb_restore twice, similarly to what is shown here:

shell> ndb_restore -n 1 -b 1 -m --backup-path=path/to/backup_dir/BACKUP/BACKUP-backup_id
shell> ndb_restore -n 1 -b 1 -r --backup-path=path/to/backup_dir/BACKUP/BACKUP-backup_id

backup_id is the ID of the backup to be restored. In the general case, no additional special arguments are required; ndb_restore always checks for the existence of parallel subdirectories under the directory indicated by the --backup-path option and restores the metadata (serially) and then the table data (in parallel).
