Archiving EELS databases
EELS provides two tools for archiving and
restoring database tables:
These tools can be used for
a variety of purposes such as:
eels_log_archive writes selected records from a specified
EELS database into a compressed flat file. Additional flags
can also be specified to purge archived records from the originating database
once those records have been written to the flat file. Archiving can be
triggered automatically by customizing /etc/default/eels or
it can be performed manually by calling eels_log_archive
from the command line. For more information see
``Archiving EELS database records''.
backup security of the EELS database
pre-selection of records for report generation
prevention of over consumption of system resources.
eels_log_restore reads the contents of a flat file generated by
eels_log_archive, and writes the results to a specified database
and table. There is no automated method for calling
eels_log_restore; you must always call this command from the
command line or via one of your own scripts. For more information on
how to restore records from an EELS archive, see
``Restoring EELS database records''.
