How are backup files generated and how to do a recovery?

Last Updated: Sep 30, 2017

Currently, ApsaraDB for MongoDB supports regular backup and temporary backup. You can trigger either of the two backup methods on the console. ApsaraDB for MongoDB uses mongodump in the background to back up your data logically. Data is backed up on hidden secondary nodes without impact on service access.

Backup files are displayed in Console > Backup and Recovery > Backup List. You can overwrite the original instance with the backup files, but be cautious with this operation.
