BART Backup Dialog v8.0

Edit this page

Use the BART Backup dialog to take ad-hoc backups using BART. This dialog can be opened using Backup... context menu of BART server node and Backup... sub menu of BART context menu of Database server node.

BART Backup dialog - General tab

Use the fields on the General tab to describe the general properties of the backup:

  • Use the Database Server field to specify the target database server that you want to back up.
  • Use the Backup name to specify a user-defined name for the backup.
  • Use the Backup type switch to specify the backup type I. e. full backup or incremental backup.
  • Use the Parent backup field to select the ID of the parent backup for incremental backup. This parent backup can either be a full or an incremental backup.
  • Use the Format switch to specify the output format of the backup i.e plain text or tar. For incremental backup, you need to select plain text only.
  • Use the Gzip compression switch to specify if gzip compression should be enabled for the backup. This option is applicable only for the tar format.
  • Use the Compression level field to specify the gzip compression level on the tar file output.
  • Use the Thread count field to specify the number of threads that will copy the blocks.
  • Use the Checksum algorithm field to specify checksum algorithm for MBM files of the backup.
  • Use the Verify checksum field to specify if you want the application to verify the checksum of the backup.
  • Use the pg_basebackup field to specify if the pg_basebackup utility should be used for the backup. Typically, pg_basebackup utility is used only for backing up the replica servers since it cannot be used for incremental backups.

BART Backup dialog - Notifications tab

Use the fields on the Notifications tab to specify the email notification settings for a backup:

  • Use the Send the notifications field to specify when you want the email notifications to be sent.
  • Use the Email group field to specify the email group that should receive the email notification.
