Make a physical backup of the App Visibility PostgreSQL database to protect your data from loss. The output of a physical backup contains the data files that the App Visibility server can use directly, resulting in a faster recovery operation.
While it is always good practice to back up your App Visibility databases, to enable the recovery of data and configuration information for manually created applications with synthetic monitoring, backing up the database is vital. If the TrueSight Presentation Server and the App Visibility portal are unexpectedly disconnected, the manual application configuration information and data might be lost.
The script creates a backup of the data in the avdb.dump file in the server component's installationDirectory\ADOP_DB\pgsql\backup directory.
