running back every hour

Post by jaf »

hello,

I am running Agent for Linux with backup to VBR for an application server.

at the moment i run backup 2 time a day.

I want to increase to every hour (24 times a day).

Is this a problem? or are any better/preferred ways to do?

Maybe i think it would be good to create an second backup chain for this,
one is for 2 time a day, the other for every hour?

Hi,

There are two ways to achieve that:

a) Use "managed by backup server" mode and configure your schedule to run the backup job periodically.

b) for unmanaged mode you can define your own schedule via crontab.

Thanks!

Sorry, I missed the point, but now it's clear.

There is nothing wrong in running backups every hour. Otherwise we wouldn't have placed such option in VBR.

May I ask you why every hour? Are you looking to protect a certain application?

Thanks!
