Snapshot API Question


(davrob) #1

Hi,

I've been having a look at the Snapshot API in Beta2.

Previously I've always relied on a database to be the primary source of my
indexed data, I'm wondering if now is the time to consider going pure
elasticsearch.

So, from the docs, it appears that snapshots are incremental, and can be
done every 5 minutes or so, if needed.

However, is there a recommended procedure for restoring data that has not
made it into the latest snapshot, perhaps by playing back the transaction
log(s)?

-David.

Anyone got any thoughts on this? I thought Snapshot and resilience/backup
was a cornerstone of the 1.0 release, if so I would have thought someone
would have had some idea on how to achieve 100% data safety.
