Backing up a cluster 

OpsCenter provides a way to schedule and run backup operations on a cluster.

OpsCenter provides a way to schedule and run backup operations on a cluster. OpsCenter allows organizations to run one-time backup jobs as well as schedule backup jobs to run at a later date and on a recurring basis. Commitlog backups allow you to restore the data to a particular date and time.
Note: Keep the following caveats in mind when creating and restoring backups:
  • Restoring a snapshot that contains only the system keyspace is not allowed. There must be both system and non-system keyspaces, or only non-system keyspaces in the snapshot you want to restore.
  • Restoring a snapshot that does not contain a table definition is not allowed.
  • Restoring a snapshot to a location with insufficient disk space fails. The Restore Report indicates which nodes do not have sufficient space and how much space is necessary for a successful restore. For more information and tips for preventative measures, see Monitoring sufficient disk space for restoring backups.
