Perform a data backup manually

Last Updated: Jun 25, 2021

In addition to regular backup policies, OceanBase also supports manual data backup. Instant backup is independent of backup policies and can directly create data backups in any scenario.


  • By default, one day is merged in OceanBase. However, if the business write volume is large, multiple merges may be triggered. OceanBase can only have one successful data backup after each merge. If the data backup is successful, the backup is failed if it is triggered again before the next merge.

  • Manual backup is limited to data backup and does not have any impact on the log backup task.
