Backup strategy

Database (Performance Warehouse data) and configuration (see Updates & Configuration) are backed up regularly.

Automatic backup

  • Database: daily snapshot is taken (incremental)
  • Configuration: a snapshot of the configuration is taken every 20 minutes.

Manual backup (restoration point before upgrade, configuration change, ...)

Before a configuration change (e.g Upgrade Dynatrace Server from 6.2 to 6.3, Hardware Upgrade, ...) a manual back-up of the database and configuration is taken - enabling us to restore the original state in case something went wrong. The last three manual back-ups are kept.
