It appears that Continuous Operations method only allows me to backup the entire database? So I'd do
butil -startbu @filelist, then backup the entire database (copy, rsync, etc), then run
butil -endbu @filelist. Looking through the documentation I don't see a way to get transaction logs out of this method; like I would do for MSSQL (
BACKUP LOG ACCT TO DISK) or Postgres (
archive_command). With rsync, it might be feasible to still do this every 15 minutes.
The Archival Logging method means I would have to occasionally stop the database to get a full backup, which is acceptable for me. But can I copy the log files off of the server every 15 minutes, ie log shipping?
