After your Update Manager database instance and Update Manager server are installed and operational, perform standard database maintenance processes.
Maintaining your Update Manager database involves several tasks:
Monitoring the growth of the log file and compacting the database log file, as needed. See the documentation for the database type that you are using.
Scheduling regular backups of the database.
Backing up the database before any Update Manager upgrade.
See your database documentation for information about backing up your database.
