Backup and restore

Backing up TimescaleDB takes advantage of the reliable functionality already available through PostgreSQL. There are several ways to accomplish this: physical backups with pg_basebackup or another tool, or logical backups with pg_dump and pg_restore. Physical backups may also be used with write-ahead log (WAL) archiving to achieve an ongoing backup.

If you have a multi-node deployment, make sure you can restore to a point that ensures consistency across all nodes. You can create a restore point with the create_distributed_restore_point function, and use it later when you restore from a physical backup.
