Taking backup of DataHub


The recommended backup strategy is to periodically dump the database datahub.metadata_aspect_v2 so it can be recreated from the dump which most managed DB services will support (e.g. AWS RDS). Then run restore indices to recreate the indices.

In order to back up Time Series Aspects (which power usage and dataset profiles), you'd have to do a backup of Elasticsearch, which is possible via AWS OpenSearch. Otherwise, you'd have to reingest dataset profiles from your sources in the event of a disaster scenario!


To take a backup of your quickstart, take a look at this document on how to accomplish it.
