I have searched a bit, but cannot find any description of how to backup/restore LPAR2RRD.
My main concern is, that I don't want to risk loosing the historical data, that is in the system.
Any hints?



  • Hi,

    use standard filesystem backup, nothing especial is needed.
    All data is under "data" dir.  In fact nothng else is needed.

    For restore again standard filesystem recovery.

    Hi Pavel

    Thank you. Standard filesystem backup is now established (haven't tested restore, but will do some day).
    To make it simple, I make complete backup of /home (there is nothing but LPAR2RRD on this server).
    I use the LPAR2RRD server itself to import NMON files (sending to localhost). To have a complete "point in time" backup, I guess that I also need "timing files" under /var/tmp , so I also make complete backup of /var
    For a restore test, I plan to restore complete /home and all lpar2rrd* files from /var/tmp
    Anything else?

  • /var/tmp is not really necessary but it could be included.
    There is just a timestaps for already collected nmon data. If it is not there it will be recreated.
