Hi all, I’m new to Fauna and am researching if it would be a good fit for a new project I am starting.
I have a need to provide exports of entire collections for use as backups periodically. Rather than loop through all of the records in a pagination/get query, it seems like I could just use FDM to export the entire collection to a JSON file.
My question is if doing that is the best practice, and also how it would be impacted by billing? I don’t want to incur millions of reads every time I want to export all of the records.
Similarly, I would need the ability to import large collections from time to time (again, possibly millions of documents). If I use FDM, would I be charged for a write for each document?
I couldn’t find anywhere in the documentation that outline how FDM imports and exports are billed in terms of reads and writes.
