ArangoDB v3.12 is under development and not released yet.
This documentation is not final and potentially incomplete.
arangodump has the following limitations:
- In a cluster, arangodump does not guarantee to dump a consistent snapshot if write operations happen while the dump is in progress (see Hot Backups for an alternative). It is therefore recommended not to perform any data-modification operations on the cluster while arangodump is running. This is in contrast to what happens on a single instance or an active failover setup, where even if write operations are ongoing, the created dump is consistent, as a snapshot is taken when the dump starts.
