By default, the ssh-ca-backup script takes a backup from the Certifier database, configuration info, and internal PKI data. The backup destination directory is specified in the bin/ssh-ca-runenv configuration script.

Only the most recent database backup will be stored in the system. The old backup will be purged after a successful run.
