Hi, Given a fairly large database (dozens of gigabytes), which uses WAL, and is being accessed continuously (mostly read transactions, but regular write transactions as well), what are the fastest and less disruptive ways to back it up?
A basic ".backup" from the CLI can occasionnally take hours, as it is thrown thrown off whenever large write transactions occur. I have found the following approaches to seem to work, but would like a confirmation: - using temp_store = MEMORY - using synchronous = 0 - using a cache_size as large a possible (as high as possible without running out of memory) I am going on the assumption that if something fails during backup, the backup itself will be toast anyway, but is that safe otherwise? Also the precompiled CLI for Windows (sqlite3.exe) of 3.14.2 fails at around 2 GB RAM, which in my case is about 500,000 pages, is that already too high or could it be worth going with a 64bits CLI?
