Issue/Introduction

I am backing up our DR however i noticed that the size of the back up is the same as the database.

Is it possible to compress the DRbackup as its backing up? I could not find anything in vertica documentation.

Environment

Release : 3.x

Component : IM Polling

Resolution

The backup script needs to be able to read into the stored data to certify AHM and LGE, so there is no option to compress the backups.

We do store only 1 copy of the db across multiple restore points, if it is unchanged.
