How to create light(small size) backups

Hi, is there any way to do “light” backup of dremio metadata

When I run a backup using the procedure described in, i get a 2.5 GB backup.
Especially the 2 two biggest files are profiles_backup.json and metadata-dataset-splits_backup.json .

Is it possible to backup only a subset ?


Hey @dfleckinger one thing you can do is to cleanup old jobs and also compact metadata using the dremio-admin utility. Check the Metadata Cleanup section in the documentation for details. This should hopefully reduce the size a bit. Let us know if this helps.
