Does solidDB need to be backed up? Apparently not.

Response from IBM.

An in-memory database is a database management system that primarily relies on main memory for computer data storage. It is contrasted with database management systems that employ a disk storage mechanism (like DB2 for instance). Main memory databases are faster than disk-optimized databases since the internal optimization algorithms are simpler and execute fewer CPU instructions. Accessing data in memory eliminates seek time when querying the data, which provides faster and more predictable performance than disk.

The VMGR manages the following:

- the scaling and distribution of audio and video conferences
- manages attributes for conferences
- controls multimedia transport and bandwidth
- creates meeting rooms based on template

I believe all of these are stored in SolidDB.

Regarding the back up of SolidDB for VMGR. This should not be necessary, however, in case of a VMGR cluster, some issues may occur if replication is enabled, such as disk space issue, roles and memory issues, etc.

Actually, there is a hotfix for this: HF VCHE-9HDGLH. The Hotfix has fixed many issues related to SolidDB replication across VMGR cluster in the following areas:

- creation of huge replication and nohup logs in /root/replication_scripts
- optimization of propagation mechanism from replica to master
- modification in existing procedure to avoid garbage records dumping on master node.
