Performing a Backup of the InterSystems Caché Journal Files

Perform a backup on the subclient that you configured to back up the InterSystems Caché journal files.

Best Practice: Perform this backup more that one time per day. The frequency depends on your Recovery Point Objectives.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client > File System > backup_set.
  2. Right-click the subclient that contains the journal files, and then click Backup.
  3. In the Select Backup Type area, select the type of backup that you want to perform:
    1. To perform a full backup, select Full.
  4. In the Job initiation area, specify whether to run the backup job immediately or to schedule it.

    Note: Configure a schedule. For information on how to configure a backup schedule, see Schedule Backups.

  5. Optional: Create an inline copy. An inline copy is a backup copy that the Commvault software creates during the backup operation.
    1. Click Advanced.

      The Advanced Backup Options dialog box appears.

    2. On the Data tab, select the backup copy operation options:
      1. Select the Create Backup Copy immediately check box.
      2. Select the Start Backup Copy job based on Storage Policy Rules check box.
  6. Click OK.

You can manage the snapshots (for example, mount a snapshot) that the Commvault backup creates. For information on how to manage UNIX snapshots, see IntelliSnap Array Management.
