how can get backup from specific folder in linux

Post by baber » Aug 14, 2019 10:11 am

These are all of my mount points on linux OS :

Code: Select all

/dev/mapper/vg00-lvol0                      4.0G  3.7G  46M  99% /
tmpfs                                       16G     0   16G   0%  /dev/shm
/dev/mapper/vg00-lvol8                      74G   186M  70G   1%  /backup
/dev/sda1                                   97M   35M   58M   38% /boot
/dev/mapper/vg00-lvol2                      9.9G  151M  9.2G   2% /tmp
/dev/mapper/vg00-lvol1                      9.9G  3.6G  5.8G  38% /usr
/dev/mapper/vg00-lvol3                      9.9G  1.1G  8.3G  12% /var
/dev/mapper/vg01-lvol01                     4.0T  1.4T  2.4T  37% /storage


now i want get backup from folder "dump_tmp" in this path:

Code: Select all

/storage/dump_tmp
I used file level backup and choose directory to backup such as follow

Hi,
is that correct ?
Yes, that is correct.

Please also note that you seem to be dangerously low on space on your root volume.

Thanks!

No, he means low on space. Your root partition is at 99% usage!

Because you have too much data on your root partition, you need to either perform a cleanup, or extend the logical volume your root resides at.

1. No, it should not - normally veeam doesn't place anything in root partition (except cases when snapshot placement algorithm chooses to place snapshotdata file there).
2. You need to clean up your root partition regardless of your intentions to use or not to use veeam.

If /dev/mapper/vg00-lvol0 will be 100% full, the system will get practically unusable.

Thanks!

I am ok with that but you said this is not a good solution because sometimes maybe allocate / free space

Hi,

/storage/dump_tmp - what storage is it? Is it NFS or local storage? Also, what kind of data do you store there - is it a bunch of small files, or rather several large files?

Thanks!

Please give it a try without using a snapshot, and use file-masks to explicitly specify just one of those files to see if that will make any difference. If it won't, then kindly contact our support directly so they can investigate why is it taking so long

Thanks!

1- There is a checkbox right under "file-level backup" radio button.
2 - No, I mean that you need to configure filters under "Advanced settings". Leave the path as it is now (/storage/dump_tmp/), just specify IB-201908312341.tar.gz here.

Thanks!
