I’m relatively new to Nexus and I want to understand this tip from the documentation:
Write access to databases is temporarily suspended until a backup is complete. It’s advised to schedule backup tasks during off-hours.
Does the above comment mean that users will get an error when trying to use the Nexus during the backup? Can users read artifacts during the backup? Can they publish / write content during the backup?
Our OrientDB database is 1.2GB (with an 8TB blob store). It took 19s to backup those 1.2GB using the Backup Task. This created a file of 100-200MB. I tried to write to the Nexus - using a test upload - at the same time as the backup, but I missed the window because the backup was so fast!
The above Nexus is a production instance of OSS, where I ideally need to build a DEV instance to peform backup and restore testing … and further my understanding.
Hoping you can help.
