Name

Mandatory

Type

Description

keep_days

Yes

Integer

Backup retention days

The value ranges from 1 to 36500.

start_time

Yes

String

Backup time window. The creation of an automated backup will be triggered during the backup time window.

The value cannot be empty. It must be a valid value in the "hh:mm-HH:MM" format. The current time is in the UTC format.

The value of HH must be 1 greater than the value of hh. The values of mm and MM must be the same and must be 00.

Example value:

21:00-22:00

period

Yes

String

Full backup period. An automated full backup will be created on the specified time of the week.

The value is a number separated by commas (,), indicating the days of the week. For example, 1,2,3,4 indicates that the backup period is Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

differential_period

Yes

String

Differential backup interval. Interval for automated differential backup.

Its value can be 15, 30, 60, 180, 360, 720, or 1440. The unit is minute.

Example value: 30

rate_limit

No

Integer

Upload speed at which data is uploaded to OBS. 0 MB/s indicates that the speed is not limited. The upload speed is related to the bandwidth.

Value range: 0-1024

Minimum value: 0 MB/s

prefetch_block

No

Integer

Number of prefetch pages from the modified pages in the disk table file during a differential backup. When modified pages are adjacent (for example, with a bulk data load), you can set this parameter to a large value. When modified pages are scattered (for example, random update), you can set this parameter to a small value. The default value is 64.

Value: 1 to 8192

Minimum value: 1.

Maximum value: 8192

file_split_size

No

Integer

Size by which full and differential backup files are split, in GB. The value is from 0 to 1024, but it must be a multiple of 4. The default value is 4. 0 indicates the size is not limited.

Value range: 0-1024

Minimum value: 0

Maximum value: 1024

filesplit_size

No

Integer

Size by which full and differential backup files are split. Deprecated field. Leave it blank.

enable_standby_backup

No

Boolean

Whether to enable backup on a standby node. (It is not suitable for single-node instances and instances earlier than 3.100.0.)
