Neo4j Online Incremental Backups Size - Getting increased in large

gimhan

Hello All,

I'm using Neo4j Causal Cluster consists of 3 core servers and they are hosted on AWS EC2 servers.

Details of the cluster:
Neo4j Version: Neo4j Enterprise 4.3.6

I started getting incremental online backups from a core server and experiencing a huge increase in the size of the incremental backup folder(like double in size of a new online backup of the same database) and it's getting increased day by day.

Backup Command:

/bin/neo4j-admin backup --backup-dir=${BACKUP_LOCATION} --database=${DATABASE_NAME} --include-metadata=all --check-consistency=false --fallback-to-full=true

Kindly let me know if any of you guys have any idea about this?

is the increasing size as a result of the backup destination having a significant number/size of files named neostore.transaction.db.* ?  

 

We did fix this in 4.4.0 and via

```https://github.com/neo4j/neo4j/wiki/Neo4j-4.4-changelog#440

  • Backup will now prune transaction logs based on the value of dbms.tx_log.rotation.retention_policy on the backup client
