after a few years using backuppc on a local storage (internal HDDs) I’ve moved the pool into an external location connected through NFS.
Since moving the entire pool/cpool/pc was about to take a few days (!) I decided to try and use the new location from scratch (without moving the backups history).
but now, backups tend to not… finish…
without an error, just taking too long.
I have 10 PCs, all of them linux.
6 out of them have a large amount of data, which I would understand the long backups time. but from the first backups I get this:
· Full backup took ~570 minutes on Aug. 25th
· Incr. backup too ~625 minutes on Aug. 26th
next incremental backup never finished up until Aug 29th where I decided to stop it.
I rebooted the backuppc machine, and started another manual incremental backups at 16:00… still running (meaning, 21 hours and counting).
There are three options, I can think of, where the problem could be:
1. NFS/Pool side.
2. the PC being backed up.
3. the BackupPC machine.
none of those seem to have any high CPU/RAM usage or even IO, so I really don’t know where the problem actually is.
Could anyone help please?
