Reporting Backup

we had a issue related to space on disk2 of the reporting and becuase it is not yet possible to resize it, I had to backup data, rebuild the vm reporitng (with a "different" size for disk2) and the restore the data.

When manual backup has done three files are generated:


9/04/2019 12:44 289 byte backup_manifest_Tue_Apr__9_12_44_06_2019
09/04/2019 12:44 1.607 byte ib_system_capacity_db_1551790676_1551790676_0.tar.gz
09/04/2019 12:44 2.975 byte ib_system_db_1551794634_1551794274_0.tar.gz


Because I'm not able to test it, what is the file I had to restore? Maybe I should restore twice? One by one?


Thank you,

Fabio Colombo

Hi Fabio,

I seriously wonder if you have all your data in those two files. While I do not know your NIOS version, if you are not on the latest NIOS version, I would recommend performing a product restart on the reporting server and and try to make a new backup and put all the files together in one location. In the latest NIOS versions, during a backup, Splunk is forcefully stopped and data from hot buckets are rolled over for backup. In certain old ones, I believe only the already rolled over data is backed up.

But to answer your question, you don’t have to specify a file during reporting data restore. Specifying the file path is enough.

Best Regards,
Bibin Thomas

The very first time you take a backup it does a full backup.  The next time you do a backup it only does an incremental from the last time the backup was run.  This is why you see shrinking file sizes.


If you need to "reset" to take a full backup you'll need to contact support.
