You can back up an entire PostgreSQL database or individual databases.
You can run backups immediately or configure a schedule for the subclient.
PostgreSQL full backups include the entire database and the log file. A full backup is the most comprehensive backup and is the baseline for incremental backups.
Full backups are supported by DumpBasedBackupSet and FSBasedBackupSet subclients.
A PostgreSQL incremental backup contains the changed data from the last full backup. Incremental backups use less media and resources than full backups.
In a cumulative level n backup, only the data that differs from the most recent backup at level n-1 or lower, is backed up.
Incremental backups are supported by FSBasedBackupSet subclients.
What is Backed Up
- PostgreSQL system databases
- PostgreSQL user databases
- PostgreSQL databases (data and logs)
- Log files
What is Not Backed Up
- PostgreSQL application files
- Operating system data
Note: Use the File System Agent to backup these components.
