Backup & restore

Hi Guys, I'm playing with version 1.9.1 of PMM installed via the marketplace AMI. Just wondered whether it was feasible to snapshot the EBS volume for backup & restore purposes.

Thanks Martin

    Hi MartinWalsh

    You certainly can snapshot the EBS volume, and use it for backup and restore purposes. Both Prometheus and MySQL will do their own crash recovery operations so you can expect higher than normal disk I/O thus longer startup time, but otherwise this method should work. Let us know how it works out.

    Note latest version is 1.10
