New plugin makes incremental hot-backups of MySQL / MariaDB databases

The open source tool xtrabackup from Percona creates hot-backups of MySQL / MariaDB databases. The new Bareos plugin uses xtrabackup to directly retrieve full and incremental backups and process them just as other files to the Bareos storage daemon.


This way, users get very fast and efficient database backups.


On restore it passes the backup data to the xbstream command to create a subdirectory tree made of the files from full and incremental backups. This is the base to perform database restores to any point-in-time within the backup range.
