Tableau Server housekeeping made easy – Linux Edition

A few years ago, I write a blog about automating the processes involved in keeping a Tableau Server well maintained and backed up. This blog included a link to a Windows batch script that backed up the server, archived log files, and ran a cleanup task, as well as deleting old backups and log archives to avoid filling up all your storage.

With the introduction of Tableau Server on the Linux operating system, I have re-written this script in bash. You can find the script on my github page. I have included instructions in the scripts themselves, so it should all be fairly self-explanatory, but hit me up on twitter if you have any feedback or questions, or if you just want to say hi.
