[Nssbackup-team] [Bug 710585] [NEW] Slow transfer over sftp connection

2011-01-31 Thread Anton
Public bug reported:

I noticed that backups were taking much longer than I expected. Using
scp to the same server, I get about 20MB/s (which is about my max HD
throughput). However, sbackup writes at about only 2MB/s, a factor of 10
(!) slower (as reported by iotop and network traffic and manual
measurement of file growth). It isn't the compression, because that only
runs at only 20% CPU. So there seems room for a 5-fold improvement here.

This is a serious issue, because a full backup now can take up to 5
hours or so (in stead of about one hour), which significantly increases
the odds that the backup does not finish before I shutdown my laptop, or
take it offline.

I have tracked the problem to what I think may be the origin; a bug in 
glib/gvfs: 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/glib2.0/+bug/250517
In short, all writes on a gvfs volume are acknowledged, causing a 
network-latency dependent bottleneck, which may be quite severe even on 
networks with a high (intrinsic) bandwidth. In my case, it's 1G from my laptop 
all the way to the server, but with several routers in between (university 
setup).

The proper solution would be to have gvfs fixed, however according to
the bug that isn't going to be any time soon.

An alternative may be to see if a reasonable workaround fix can be
implemented for sbackup. Any ideas?

(I tried to use the 'fuse' plugin in stead of 'gvfs' for sbackup to see
if the issue exists with fuse as well, but fuse will not connect without
password, and does not accept my password since it has a '?' in it. Will
get back on this if I found time to try with a different password.)

[Nssbackup-team] [Question #143586]: Is Purge or Backup executed first?

2011-01-31 Thread Doug
New question #143586 on Simple Backup:
https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+question/143586

Just a quick question... if I set Simple Backup to do a full backup every 7 
days and purge all files older than 7 days, I assume it does the backup before 
the purge. Is that correct?

Thanks!
