Re: incremental snapshot

Unfortunately Amazon offers no tools to sees what's happening behind the scenes of their replication. You should open a support case and ask them for help. As these numbers are relevant for the invoicing they should handle it with priority even if you don't have a support contract. Stephan we opene...

Re: incremental snapshot

I have set up a test case with a "Create Snapshot Job" in AutomatiCloud for a daily snapshot of an 8 GB volume. The initial snapshot is created in US-West2 and then copied to region US-East1. The transfer volume for the first snapshot was 0,96 GB. The second and third were 0,00006315 GB. This is ex...

Re: incremental snapshot

> meaning that only the blocks in the snapshot that have changed after your last snapshot copy to the same destination are transferred. the problem is, it's a _new_ snapshot each day. If it were the same snapshot, I think the incremental-snapshot-copy would be working. Is there any way to configure ...

Re: incremental snapshot

> Can you please post a snapshot of your job definiton. see attached. note that we are deleting the snapshot after 1 day. I wonder if this deletion is causing the problem. But when we did _not_ delete, then the snapshots accumulated (new snapshot ID daily). In either case it is not behaving as the d...

incremental snapshot

I have purchased and am using Automaticloud, and generally very happy with it. We are using the option to copy snapshot to another region. However the copy-snapshot always copies a NEW snapshot, and the data-transfer costs are very high: 4 EC2 volumes totalling 350gb x ~30 day/month = 10.5TB/month @...

Re: delete local snapshot / retain copy in other region

the improvement in 3.3.819 does not appear to be working properly I have 1 EC2 instance in US-West-1 region. There are 2 Automaticloud jobs: a. saves snapshot locally (US-West) and retains for 3 days. This is working properly b. saves "copy only" snapshot to EU-West-1 (Ireland) and retains for 1 day...

Re: delete local snapshot / retain copy in other region

Version 3.3.819 is out now and supports a "copy only" mode that repects the cleanup rules in remote regions. Stephan Thank you for this improvement! I would like to try it before purchasing, but my 15 day free trial has expired, and this feature is only available with the paid version. Is there any...

Re: delete local snapshot / retain copy in other region

This is exactly the behavior that is implemented: Local snapshots are deleted following the rules you define. Snapshots in other regions are never deleted. Stephan well, that is also not what I want. I want to * delete the local snapshots as soon as they are copied to the other region * delete the ...

delete local snapshot / retain copy in other region

Hi, Nice product ! I want to keep my snapshots *only* in another region. How can I do this? My job runs daily, and retains three copies (delete after 3 days). So now I get 3 copies in the same region as my instance, and 3 copies in the other region. This makes my S3 costs double. Is there any way to...
