Introduction:

By default, Vertica backups place logs and a few other small files in /tmp/vbr. And /tmp/vbr_rsynchd

Environment:
CAPM data repository 3.x on linux
Instructions:

When you configure your backups using vbr.py --setupconfig, it creates an ini file (my_backup.ini by default).

Locate this file and add

tempDir = /somedirectory/vbr     (make sure the folder exists)

under the [Misc] section

E.G.

 

Default:

[Misc]

snapshotName = snapshot

restorePointLimit = 7

… other options …

 

E.g.:

[Misc]

snapshotName = snapshot

restorePointLimit = 7

… other options …

 

tempDir = /vertica_backups/logs 

Additional Information:

Do not edit the vbr.py, as future upgrades to CAPM will overwrite it.
