TeamCity Backup

Hi guys,


Usually our backups have consistend of doing a mysqldump and backing up specific directories under .BuildServer but reading over the backup instructions in your docs it does state to stop the TeamCity server which we do not do.  Up reading further I see the api supports executing a backup command which we could run and not backup the aftifacts.  When this is running will TeamCity be accessible?  Does it still run the builds?

Re: TeamCity Backup

It's my understanding that while the backup is running, no new builds are scheduled.  Any existing builds on the agents will continue to run.

The backup usually doesn't take too long, about 5-10 minutes on my system which is pretty large.  I have a cron job that fires a perl REST script to start

the backup and then monitor it for status.
