Filbert downloads a backup of a follower database for a given heroku application, stores it in
~/.heroku_backups, and cleans up the backup directory (see cleanup).
gem install filbert
And reload your path (e.g.
rbenv rehash). Then run
to get access to the app you are planning to backup.
Note: the backup task invokes cleanup task automatically.
filbert backup --app your-heroku-appname
You can add it as a cron task if you want
crontab -e # Then put this in there to run every 15 minutes. # 'man 5 crontab' for more examples */15 * * * * bash -lc "filbert backup --app heroku-app-name"
You can invoke the cleanup task separately by running:
Cleanup deletes backup files keeping:
- All files that are not older than 12 hours old
- One monthly copy of files older than 6 months
- One weekly copy of files older than 2 months
- One daily copy of files older than 2 days
- One hourly copy of files older than 6 hours
You can see what files would be deleted by passing in
filbert cleanup --pretend # => Would delete: # => ~/.heroku_backups/2013-01-29.dump # => ~/.heroku_backups/2013-01-28.dump # => ~/.heroku_backups/2013-01-27.dump
