Incremental backup with Curator


(Aleksei Saiko) #1

Hi ,
I didn't find a 100% answer regarding incremental backup using Curator.
Does Curator makes Incremental backups by default, or I need to config it to make Incremental backups?

Thanks!

Curator calls the snapshot functionality of Elasticsearch. From the docs:

Snapshots are taken incrementally. This means that when creating a snapshot of an index Elasticsearch will avoid copying any data that is already stored in the repository as part of an earlier snapshot of the same index. Therefore it can be efficient to take snapshots of your cluster quite frequently.

So you don't have to do anything to setup incremental! :smiley:
