Scheduling a Snapshot

You schedule a snapshot by associating an existing schedule with a volume. You can schedule snapshots on mirror volumes also; however, because mirrors are read-only, creating a snapshot of a mirror does not provide any real benefit. You can schedule a snapshot by passing the ID of a schedule to the volume modify command, or you can use the following procedure to choose a schedule for a volume using the MapR Control System.
  1. In the Navigation pane, expand the MapR-FS group and click the Volumes view.
  2. Display the Volume Properties dialog by clicking the volume name, or by selecting the checkbox beside the name of the volume then clicking the Properties button.
  3. In the Replication and Snapshot Scheduling section, choose a schedule from the Snapshot Schedule dropdown menu.
  4. Click Modify Volume to save changes to the volume.
