What should we backup for kudu??

Expert Contributor

 Hi,

 

We know that kudu doesn't provide any backup or restore support. If we have to do it on our own, what all has to be backedup?

Hi @awong

 

That means we would need a java or such program to convert the data to Parquet and then copy to HDFS right!!

There might be a better answer, but I don't think it's too uncommon to
periodically write all of your Kudu data to HDFS in Parquet. That way, if
your Kudu cluster somehow becomes irrecoverably broken, you'll at least be
able to bring back any lost tables from the HDFS copy.
