Backup tools

An additional kudu-backup-tools JAR is available to provide some backup exploration and garbage collection capabilities. This jar does not use Spark directly, but instead only requires the Hadoop classpath to run.

  • list: Lists the backups in the rootPath
  • clean: Cleans up old backed up data in the rootPath
Following is an example execution which prints the command options:
java -cp $(hadoop classpath):kudu-backup-tools-1.12.0.jar org.apache.kudu.backup.KuduBackupCLI --help
