About the Index Backup Feature

CES 7.0.6830+ (July 2014)

Coveo Enterprise Search (CES) offers an index backup feature to allow you to safely and efficiently backup your index. During a backup operation, the CES service is maintained so end-users can continue to send queries and receive search results.

The backup feature ensures that the necessary conditions are met to backup and restore a Coveo index:

  • Cyclical Redundancy Check (CRC) error-detection is used to validate the backup integrity.

  • The index is automatically switched in read-only mode during the backup operation and switched back to the read-write mode after the backup is completed, if it was in this mode when the backup operation was launched.

  • System schedules are not allowed to switch the index to the read-write mode during a backup operation.
