Note: This topic applies to Tableau Server only.

A Tableau Server administrator should perform daily backups of Tableau Server and its data. Taking these steps can help ensure that Tableau Server runs with minimum loss. You will use the Tableau Services Manager (TSM) command line tool to back up and restore Tableau data, including Tableau Server's own PostgreSQL database, which stores workbook and user metadata, data extract files, server configuration data, and log files (Windows | Linux). As of 2018.2, both Windows and Linux versions of Tableau Server use TSM.
