Public bug reported: I have backups in old format (1.4) and would like to convert them to the new format (1.5). As suggested, I use sbackup-upgrade-backups. It starts well, and after a couple of minutes it begins to create a snar file. It takes seven hours to grow the snar file to 800kB on a Samba-mounted backup file system.
The problem is, it gets slower and slower. It has run for eight days now, and the snar file is little more than 4MB is size. I noted snar file size and time a couple of times a day and plotted the file size versus time needed, and I get a scaring log-like behaviour: on a semilog plot I get a more or less straight line. If it goes on like this, it will need ten days to get to 5MB, and 100 days to get to the expected 10MB (the size of snar files of similar backups). I can provide the numbers if needed, but the plot is well fitted by a line that grows by 5MB per decade. Clearly there is somethimg wrong here. Maybe these number can ring a bell in sbackup-upgrade-backups' ears. ** Affects: sbackup Importance: Undecided Status: New -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Simple Backup Maintainers, which is subscribed to sbackup. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1000171 Title: sbackup-upgrade-backups incredibly slow To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/sbackup/+bug/1000171/+subscriptions _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~nssbackup-team Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~nssbackup-team More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
