Backing up elasticsearch using open source dump tool or official snapshot


#1

I am reviewing two options for backing up elasticsearch right now.

Unofficial dump tool


Seems real easy to use.

Official snapshot
https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/modules-snapshots.html
Seems not that hard to use, but will probably have to setup a nfs in our case.

I am curious whether anyone has experience in using the open source dump tool mentioned above.
Would it lock the database so the data is in a safe state, point-in-time view state?
What tool would you recommend for a light small cluster?

Thank you.
