As the LevelDB backup link above mentions, running this in a cron job
is a good approach. You're best bet is to use a tool like rsync for
the data directory backups – although, if you're using a file system
with snapshot capabilities, that may be easier.
Thanks for reply. We are planing to launch 3 physical machines each has 2 riak nodes(6 riak nodes). Is it enough for production environment. Is there any problems using structure like this in clustering or data backups ?
i would not recommend putting multiple riak nodes on the same physical machine. this will mess with your perceived replication if you lose one of the physical machines.... not to mention double your io and resource requirements per machine.
