You can use the Commvault software to back up and restore Splunk clustered indexes in the enterprise clustered environments.


Indexes You Can Back Up

  • Clustered indexes: You can back up only warm and cold buckets in the clustered indexes.


You can retain deleted buckets based on their retention policy.

Backups You Can Perform

  • Full backups, using IntelliSnap

  • Incremental backups, using IntelliSnap

When You Can Perform Backups

  • On a schedule: The server plan that you assign manages scheduled backups

  • On demand: You can perform on-demand backups at any time


You can have more than one schedule for the default subclient.


Indexes You Can Restore

  • Individual indexes

  • All indexes

Backups You Can Use for Restores

  • The most recent backup: For example, restore the most recent backup to its original location

  • A backup from a specific date: For example, restore data to a point in time before it became unusable

  • Backups from a date range: For example, restore data that was accidentally deleted

Destinations You Can Restore To

  • To a source server (in place)

  • To a different server (out of place)
