Striim 3.9.4 / 3.9.5 documentation

Backing up the metadata repository

The Striim metadata repository stores namespace, user, and application data, as well as information used for recovery. It may be hosted on the internal Derby database, Oracle, or PostgreSQL.

If hosted on Oracle or PostgreSQL, use your usual approach for backing it up.

If hosted on Derby:

  1. If Striim is not running, start it (see Starting and stopping Striim).

  2. Open a shell terminal, change to the Striim/bin directory, and enter this command: ./derbyTools.sh backup

  3. When the backup completes, copy the backup directory from Striim/derby/DerbyBackups to a secure location.
