What is the best backup strategy for ELK stack?

(Vikas Gopal) #1

Hi Experts ,

Before moving things to the production I want to collect thoughts on ELK stack backup . Can you recommend or suggest some criteria's or methods best for backup . I have a question

  1. one way which comes to my mind is directly take directory backup and store it on tape or HD, but how I can take incremental backup with this approach ?

Use Elasticsearch's built-in snapshot and restore feature. The snapshots are consistent and incremental out of the box.
