View and Manage Stored Backups
You can view database backups currently stored in the system, and you can perform certain actions on them.
To view the existing backups, go to the Database Instance screen (Services > EXASolution and click the database instance), and click Backups.
The Database Backup List screen opens:
The currently-stored backups are listed with the following information:
|Database||Name of the database instance.|
|Backup ID||A unique identifier of the backup.|
|Volume||The volume name that the backup is stored on.|
EXASolution provides some flexibility with backup levels:
|Timestamp||The date and time the backup was created.|
|Expiration||The expiration date of the backup.|
|Usage (GiB)||The size of the backup in GiB.|
|Increment||The increment of the backup over the last full backup.|
|Status||The status of the backup.|
Perform Actions on Backups
|Change the expiration date of a backup||
Change the date shown in the Expiration Date field, and click Apply.
|View expired backups||
Select Show expired Backups and click Refresh.
|Delete a backup||
Select the backup(s) to be deleted and click Delete.
|Delete unusable backups||
Select Delete unusable backups.
Unusable backups - for example, expired backups or incremental backups to backups that are no longer stored - are deleted to clear up space.
