Taking continuous backup on influxdb 1.7.6


We are using InfluxDB v1.7.6. We want to take continuous backups. Is it logical to take below directory backups incrementally everyday. And if there is a problem we can write these directories back on these directories again?


Hello @cslm,
You can also use the backup CLI command for 1.x:

I think whether or not that is logical depends on your use case. How critical is your data and how much are you writing every day?

Hello Anaisdg,

Thanks for your answer. We are keeping mostly critical data. 2.5-3 million count i get when i run “select count(*) from measurement”.
