Overview

up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor includes two command line utilities for archiving and restoring your DataStore:

...

  1. Shut down the up.time Data Collector service.
  2. Navigate to the scripts folder under the directory where up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor is installed.

  3. Run the following command to save the dump file to the folder of the root installation:

    Code Block
    fulldatabasedump

    Or, to specify the location of the dump file:

    Code Block
    fulldatabasedump <path>

    Depending on the size of your DataStore, this process can take anywhere from several minutes to several hours.

  4. The utility will create a uptimedump_YYYY-MM-DD.xml.gz file. For example, uptimedump_2007-01-02.xml.gz. This file is saved in up.timeUptime Infrastructure Monitor's root installation directory.

...

  1. Ensure that the DataStore service is running.
  2. Use the resetdb utility to delete and then recreate the up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor database structure by running one of the following commands:

    Code Block
    languagetext
    On Windows:
    >net stop "up.time Data Collector" 
    >C:>Program Files>uptime software>uptime>resetdb --nodata really 
    
     On Linux or Solaris: 
     /etc/init.d/uptime_core stop 
     /usr/local/uptime/resetdb --nodata really
  3. Run the following command:

    Code Block
    languagetext
    fulldatabaseimport path/<filetoimport>.xml.gz
    

    Where path/<filetoimport>.xml.gz is the path to and file name of the archived contents of your DataStore. For example, to import the archive that is located in up.timeUptime Infrastructure Monitor's root installation directory, enter:

    Code Block
    languagetext
    fulldatabaseimport uptimedump_2007-01-02.xml.gz
  4. Restart the up.time Data Collector service by running the following command:

    Code Block
    languagetext
    On Windows: >net start "up.time Data Collector"
    On Linux or Solaris: /etc/init.d/uptime_core start

Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Configuration

If you do not require all of your historical performance data or Service Monitor outage information, you can migrate only your up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor configuration from one up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor installation to another using the steps below.

  1. On the current up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor installation, generate a problem report using the Problem Reporting link under the Config tab.
  2. Install the same version of up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor on your new up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor server. It is very important that the export system and the import system are using the same up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor version.
  3. Copy this problem report to your new up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor server and place it in the up.time Uptime Infrastructure Monitor installation directory.
  4. Import the configuration from your problem report by running the following commands (replace PR-NAME with the full path & file name for your problem report, e.g. c:pr20140618-123456.zip or /root/pr20140618-123456.zip):

    On Windows:

    Code Block
    >net stop "up.time Data Collector" 
    >C:>Program Files>uptime software>uptime>resetdb --nodata really 
    >C:>Program Files>uptime software>uptime>scripts>primport PR-NAME 
    >net start "up.time Data Collector"

    On Linux or Solaris: 

    Code Block
    /etc/init.d/uptime_core stop
    /usr/local/uptime/resetdb --nodata really
    /usr/local/uptime/scripts/primport PR-NAME
    /etc/init.d/uptime_core start
