Backup Frequency

Hi,

Is there a setting for full and incrementation backup frequency? Thank you.

HI Albert.

There isn’t an inbuilt scheduler in Percona Backup for MongoDB to make full snapshots. Instead we suggest using crond or a similar service to run “pbm backup” as a shell command.

Regarding the incremental backups - when you enable PBM’s PITR they will be every 10 mins. This is not configurable yet but it is in the mid-term todo list to make it so (https://jira.percona.com/browse/PBM-543).

An inbuilt scheduler for making the full backups has been suggested as a feature (https://jira.percona.com/browse/PBM-530) but it is not a priority feature at the moment. The next features in progress are Azure support (PBM-496) and priority weights (PBM-488).

Hi,

Thank you for the reply. That is what I needed. One suggestion, It would be nice that this is documented in the User Manual.

Fair call. I created PBM-648 to add something to the documentation.
