Moving logger archives to new NFS

Jump to solution

Hi all,

Like many others, we are facing problems with extremely slow searches through archived data. In fact - we would love, if we had seen the "speed" some of you report. Right now, we are doing close to 1:1 searches - searching through 1 days data takes just about 23 hours

In an attempt to get just a bit better performance on the archive-searches, we want to move the NFS-share to a new and faster NAS.

The question is - how do we do this best without loosing connection to the existing archived data? Can we just delete the existing NFS-mount, mount the new NFS with the same name as before, and copy the archives across?

Any thoughts?

Thanks

/Claus

Claus,

If you copy all the archives to another storage and mount it at the same place, you should be fine. The logger software won't know that something has changed. Just make sure the permissions are right and the mount point is the same.

If you stick to this you should be fine.

What version of logger are you seen this extreme slowness?

Hi Vini,

Thanks for your answer.

We are on 4.0.1, but are about to upgrade to 5.2 - just wanted to get the NFS in place first

Ok, there have been massive improvements since v4.

Just make sure you are careful with the upgrade paths as you may have to install a couple of upgrades before you go to 5.2.

Best to read the release notes carefully.

Let us know if you have issues.

Worked out fine 🙂

Thank you for your answer.

After upgrading logger to 5.2 and switching to a new and faster NAS, it actually seems as if searches in archived data are quicker. I'm still don't have my arms over my head - but I am a bit more optimistic 😉

Cheers

Claus
