i have a general question about backup/restore of a distributed monitoring checkmk environment. We currently have one master and 4 slaves, probably 6 slaves in the medium term. These sites run on VMWare systems with RHEL7. I have defined a local backup job on each site and additionally a VMWare snapshot of the respective VVM is created once a week. Do you have experience with restoring VMWare snapshots, is there anything to consider? Must/should checkmk always be stopped when a VMWare snapshot is created?
Is it better to restore a VMware snapshot in case of content problems that cannot be fixed so easily again, or rather a backup that was created by checkmk itself?
I am grateful for any tips and experiences regarding backup/restore of checkmk environments.
