LVM snap shots for elasticsearch


(Rahul Sharma) #1

We are trying to create LVM snap shots for elasticsearch indices.
Can you please let me know pros and cons of this approach?

Thanks,
Rahul

The main difference is going to be how you manage the data. LVM snapshots will have whatever properties they usually have, the difference being that you will need to stop Elasticsearch when doing a restore. If you use Elasticsearch snapshots then you only have to close the index into which you are restoring.

at the time of creating LVM snapshot we dont need to stop elasticsearch?

You probably should.
