Back up the NTA Flow Storage Database manually

Table of contents

If you want to execute a backup, you can do it immediately. Manual backups are convenient before you make any changes to your SolarWinds NTA installation, such as an upgrade or changing the location of your NTA Flow Storage Database.

During the backup, flows continue to be collected.

Initial backups are time-consuming, because they include all data in the database.

If you launch an update or backup operation when another operation is running, the second operation will be executed after the first one finishes.

Execute the backup

  1. Under NTA Flow Storage Database Settings, next to Backup, click Backup Scheduler.
  2. Click Backup Now.
