Fuseki provides a number of “data services” - each data service is an RDF datasets and a configurable set of endpoints for various operations such as SPARQL query, SPARQL update and file upload.

The naming style for application operations is:

There is also an internal name, generated by the server which is a UUID. This UUID is never reused even if the dataset name is reused after the first use is deleted.

The lifecycle of a dataset
An active dataset is able to process applications requests.
An offline dataset is one whose configuration is know to the server but is currently not controlled by the server.
When offline, the dataset is unavailable for application requests but the name remains in-use and the configuration information retained. When made active again, the dataset and it’s associated services are recreated. When offline, Fuseki does not retain any access to the data so the dataset can be changed with tools outside of Fuseki. When active, Fuseki assumes it has full control of a dataset (in particular TDB datasets can not be updated by other applications while active).
When Fuseki is not running, all datasets can be considered offline even if they were not explicitly made so prior to shutdown of the server.
(If a dataset uses in-memory storage, changes to its state are lost even though it is recreated from its; configuration when the server restarts.)
