Subject Restore speed
Author Kjell Rilbe

To copy a database with a few million records in some tables we did a
backup and restore.

Backup took about 20 minutes, but restore took several hours, Most of
the time spent restoring indices.

Am I right in assuming the index DATA is not backed up, but only index
DEFINITIONS, so on restore every index has to be rebuilt?

If so is there any way I can do this faster another time?

FB 2.1 currently. Any difference in FB 2.5?
