Standard practive for backing up BPC

What is the best practive for backing up an appset?

I am running BPC NW 7.5 SP15. I want to run UJBR daily in order to backup the production appset. Is it standard practice to backup Metadata Tables, Master Data and Transactional data every day with "Record Count" set to zero so that all records are captured? Also, what is the purpose of the "packaged by million records" field?

    The packaged by millions records field is there for models with huge number of records. If there are a huge number of records, Backup/restore can error due to memory issues.

    Regarding best practices: In general UJBR is not used to backup BPC models on a daily basis. Normally standard SAP backup tools would be used for this.

    Hi Timothy

    Why you want to take backup of BPC Appset daily because the tool(with master data) will not change on daily basis but the only thing changes is transaction data..

    If you want you can take backup of your transaction data then move the BPC cube data to other cube in BI.

    The problem I have with using standard SAP backup tools is that a recovery requires recovering the entire BW database.

    It makes sense that the Master data does not need to be written to backup - at least not on a daily basis. It makes sense that I should create a UJBR backup of the transactional data. What about the Metadata Tables? What are these and should they be written to backup using UJBR?
