Perhaps now that I've converted those time stamps into my local time
zone you will realise why you were waiting. It's possible that if you'd
replied to the list then someone else would have been able to help you.

Backup window exceeded?

I have an rsnapshot job which is backing up data from 4 servers. One of the server's backup is quite large (~180GB), consisting mostly of users' home directories (each with a very large number of small files). From time to time (at least once a week) my backup fails with "Backup window exceeded, terminating processes", as shown below:

[04/Jul/2014:06:59:51] /opt/bin/rsync -azPv --delete --numeric-ids --relative --delete-excluded --timeout=90 --inplace --rsh="/opt/bin/ssh -p 22100" --link-dest=/share/mydomain/backup/daily.1/datamachine/ root <at> mydomain.com:/mnt/hdc/snapshots/datamachie/daily.0 /share/mydomain/backup/daily.0/datamachine/
[04/Jul/2014:07:30:02] Backup window exceeded, terminating processes\n
[04/Jul/2014:07:30:03] rsnapshot pid = 23897


Do you know:

1) Why this is happening - is there an option to configure the backup window (it seems to be configured for 30 minutes) ?
2) Do you have any other tips that could help prevent this?

Thanks for the help!

Long running rsnapshot

Hi,

I run rsnapshot overnight to backup my data to a friend's server. 
Because I'm using DSL with a slow upstream, sometimes this can take many 
hours if I've made changes to many files. In some cases, the backup is 
still running in the morning, cripping my DSL line.

I just wondered...

1) Is it safe to just kill off the rsync process? Or is there a risk of 
corrupting my backups?

2) If I do kill off the rsync process, will rsnapshot manage to include 
all the changes that were successfully transferred in the snapshot, i.e. 
can I rely on not having to start from scratch the next evening?

3) If I forget to kill off the process, will rsnapshot detect that it is 
still running the next evening and/or when it tries to do the next 
weekly/monthly snapshot?

Other options I'm considering are:

a) passing --bwlimit to rsync (but this isn't ideal because I cant 
change it dynamically at different times of day)

b) using QoS in my router to bandwidth limit rsync at certain times of 
day (but I'm concerned that a snapshot may still be running when the 
next one starts, hence q3 above).

Anyone else got any other thoughts on this?

Cheers
Matt.

Moving a rsnapshot repositary

Hi all,

Running out of space on our current 1TB. Trying to move to a 3TB

What is the proper command to move a rsnapshot repository to a new
destination?

Thanks!

Check the use_lazy_deletes option in man rsnapshot, it does something
very similar to what you are asking for.

cascading and overlapping

Hello, we use rsnapshot to create backups for our hosting environment, and I have the following setup:

retain          daily   7
retain          weekly  4
retain          monthly 1


Now, when I run these from crontab, once a month I run the monthly at midnight, every sunday I run the weekly at 1am and every day I run the daily at 2am.

This is all working fine except as the data to backup grows, the process takes more time and I need to give more time for the monthly to run before the weekly does and the same for weekly before the daily runs...

After looking at the logs, I see that there are two phases within an rsnapshot run that take time: actually hardlinking the files under the schedule.0 to schedule.1 AND removing the schedule.0 once the hardlinking is completed...

So I was thinking if rsnapshot was MOVING the schedule.0 to a seperate location with a TEMP name, scheduling the actual DELETE *OFFLINE* and complete its run, taking less time to complete and allowing for other runs (like weekly and daily) to run more closer to one another.

What do you guys think?

2 times every days

Hi all, I'm sorry for newbie question

I'd like do a backup 2 times every days (at 1pm and at 1am), and keep it
for six months

So I've:

cat /etc/rsnapshot.conf
[...]
retain          hourly  2
retain          daily   7
retain          weekly  4
retain          monthly 6
[...]

cat /etc/cron.d/rsnapshot
[...]
# 0 */4         * * *           root    /usr/bin/rsnapshot hourly
30 3    * * *           root    /usr/bin/rsnapshot daily
0  3    * * 1           root    /usr/bin/rsnapshot weekly
30 2    1 * *           root    /usr/bin/rsnapshot monthly
[...]

my question: how entries I've to put to cron for do 2 backup every days?
(1pm and 1am)?

thanks for help

Pol
