Creating a GigaFlow Configuration Backup For Use On A New Server

After making changes to the GigaFlow server’s configuration, it’s important to make a backup of the configuration.

Using Windows:

  1. Open a Windows command prompt as administrator.
  2. Assuming that the PostgreSQL path has been added to windows, you can run the pg_dump command below directly. If not, either add it to the path or change the active directory to C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\X.X\bin, where X.X is the PostgreSQL revision, e.g 9.5.
  3. Run:
    "D:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\10\bin\pg_dump.exe" --table=attributecategories --table=attributevalues_0 --table=attributevalues_1 --table=attributevalues_2 --table=attributevalues_3 --table=attributevalues_4 --table=attributevalues_5 --table=attributevalues_6 --table=blacklistslocal --table=blacklistslocalentries --table=blacklistsources --table=customerdevicesettings --table=customersettings --table=dataaccessgroupmembers --table=dataaccessgroups --table=definedapplications --table=deviceinterfaces --table=devices --table=eventtriggers --table=eventtypes --table=flowobjects --table=forensicsreports --table=geoips --table=gigastors --table=integrations --table=interfacealertsettings --table=interfacetypes --table=gigastores --table=ldapgroups --table=ldapusers --table=multiservertargets --table=networkaudits --table=pentypes --table=penvendors --table=portalusers --table=portparams --table=profilers --table=profilerstoallowedprofiles --table=profilerstoentryprofiles --table=queryfielderservers --table=reportlinks --table=savedreports --table=serverparams --table=serversubnetport --table=serversubnets --table=snmppollerclasses --table=snmppollerclassesforsysoid --table=sqlreports --table=standardapplications --table=stattypes --table=syslogprocessors --table=syslogprocessorsdefault --table=trafficgroups --table=trafficgroupsdeployed --table=trafficgroupsubnets --table=eventrunners --table=eventrunners_versioned --table=usergroups --table=userldapsettings --table=userpermissions --table=users --table=whitelist -U myipfix -f c:/temp/GigaFlowConfigBackup.sql
  4. You may be prompted for the database password, i.e. myipfix. This will create the file GigaFlowConfigBackup.sql in the active directory. Move this to wherever you archive configurations.

Restoring From a GigaFlow Configuration Backup

Warning: the following process will drop the existing database on the server.

  1. Stop the GigaFlow service (GigaFlow.exe).
  2. Upload the required GigaFlowConfigBackup.sql file to the machine.
  3. psql --host --username=myipfix -c "drop database myipfix"
  4. psql --host --username=myipfix -c "create database myipfix owner=myipfix"
  5. psql --host --username=myipfix < ./GigaFlowConfigBackup.sql
  6. You may be prompted for the database password, i.e. myipfix.
  7. Restart GigaFlow.

  1. Run below if you want to reset serverid on a new box:
    psql --host --username=myipfix -c "delete from serverparams where key in('serverid','installtime','license')"
