RM Server Process to backup Server?

Alright, this is a "I'm lazy and I want to see if someone in the Community already does this...and if they can share an example" type of post.

 

Does anyone have a RapidMiner Process that will do a database backup dump of the RapidMiner Server? I want to cron daily backup dumps from RM Server of the RM Server. Maybe @BalazsBarany has a process handy?

    Hi Tom,

    very much depends on your underlying database, if you want to make a complete backup of RapidMiner Server.

    However, we find it convenient to make backups of the repository only. Just to be sure...

    Therefore we use a simple process iterating over the repository and copying anything into a local one. Interested? Of course you will need to get the Jackhammer extension in order ot access processes as objects in a process.

     

    Greetings,

     Sebastian

    Hi @Thomas_Ott!

     

    @land is right, the backup process depends on the database.

    I use "automysqlbackup" and "autopostgresqlbackup" (Debian package names) on my Linux hosts with the respective databases. If you're not a database expert, these are fine. They automatically create daily/weekly/monthly rotated database dumps.

     

    Relational databases need to be backed up using the vendor's suggested methods in order to get consistent database backups. Simply copying the database files will lead to inconsistent/broken backups. (Unless you're able to get a consistent snapshot of your file system.)

     

    Regards,

    Balázs

    @land, thanks for that tip!

    @BalazsBarany I'm running postgres for my RM Server. When I migrate it to a Linux box, I'll use those packages. Thanks!
