Subject Incremental backups
Date Thu, 25 Nov 2010 11:16:35 GMT
hi folks,

As I'm about to implement it myself, I'm curious to know how people handle
incremental backups for their DB's.

The straight-forward way, as I see it, is to shutdown couch and use a tool
like rsync or duplicity to backup db files. It should do the job well, and
as an added bonus, it could also be used to backup views.

Does anyone know if a similar backup could be done while the couch is still
on (and the db is being updated)?

Does anyone do incremental backups using replication?
