pg_dump example

The script assumes you are going to backup the primary example and that container is running.

This example assumes you have configured a storage filesystem as described in the link:/installation/storage-configuration/[Storage Configuration] document.

A successful backup will perform pg_dump/pg_dumpall on the primary and store the resulting files in the mounted volume under a directory named <HOSTNAME>-backups as a sub-directory, then followed by a unique backup directory based upon a date and timestamp - allowing any number of backups to be kept.

For more information on how to configure this container, please see the link:/container-specifications/[Container Specifications] document.

To shutdown the instance and remove the container for each example, run the following:



Run the backup with this command:

cd $CCPROOT/examples/docker/pgdump

Kubernetes and OpenShift

Running the example:

cd $CCPROOT/examples/kube/pgdump

The Kubernetes Job type executes a pod and then the pod exits. You can view the Job status using this command:

${CCP_CLI} get job

The pgdump.json file within that directory specifies options that control the behavior of the pgdump job. Examples of this include whether to run pg_dump vs pg_dumpall and advanced options for specific backup use cases.
