Description : Backup and recovery utilities for GitHub Enterprise
The backup utilities implement a number of advanced capabilities for backup
hosts, built on top of the backup and restore features already included in
These advanced features include:
Complete GitHub Enterprise backup and recovery system via two simple utilities:
`ghe-backup` and `ghe-restore`.
Online backups. The GitHub appliance need not be put in maintenance mode for
the duration of the backup run.
Incremental backup of Git repository data. Only changes since the last
snapshot are transferred, leading to faster backup runs and lower network
bandwidth and machine utilization.
Efficient snapshot storage. Only data added since the previous snapshot
consumes new space on the backup host.
Multiple backup snapshots with configurable retention periods.
Backup commands run under the lowest CPU/IO priority on the GitHub appliance,
reducing performance impact while backups are in progress.
Runs under most Linux/Unix environments.
