FAQ

Doesn't RethinkDB already have dump and restore commands for handling this?

Thinker's clone command can dump and restore in one step (even to remote databases). clone can also target a different database on the same server.

The sync command is different entirely, sync runs a hashing function on the tables in both databases and only modifies the data that is different, saving tons of bandwidth and time. For example, I regularly update a local copy of a production database for development. The database is 20GB in size, I can sync the changes over a ~25mb link in about 20 minutes.
