This setting controls the direction in which the gatherer is going for TRIMPush data sources. Possible values are:

forward: Gather record starting from the trim.gather_start_date to the trim.gather_end_date backward: Gather record starting from the trim.gather_end_date to the trim.gather_start_date.

It’s usually set to backward to perform an initial crawl by gathering the most recent records first. When the initial crawl is completed, it’s usually set to forward to perform daily gatherings.
