Snapshots not being deleted after delta



  • Sadly, I don't have enough time to go that far for community support. Just retry when the 4.15 is out with the new algorithm, and keep us posted!



  • anybody else reading this topic is having the same problem? Except for "webguyz", that alread contacted me by chat with same problem.



  • Sorry... Not me.



  • Some news....

    Dundee TP2 = Didn't work
    6.5 update 1021 = Didn't work
    6.5 update 1024 = Work



  • 4.15 is out, feel free to test!

    Can't checkout node_modules from xo-web anymore?

    root@XENORCHESTRA:/opt/xo/xo-web# git checkout node_modules
    error: pathspec 'node_modules' did not match any file(s) known to git.
    


  • Nothing more in node_modules, you can continue without bothering this step.

    ok.....about some plugins, like transport-email, they are installed in node_modules of xo-server, right? But sometimes, we need to remove this folder and then npm install will re-create this folder and reinstall dependencies.....but in this case, I'll lose my plugins, right?
    Can I install these plugins globally instead of node_modules of xo-server? Or am I totally wrong? I don't know much about node and libraries.



  • Since node 3, it's not mandatory to remove your node_modules after each update. It's only if you have problems.

    So do it only if needed, and reinstall plugins if you need to remove this folder.



  • Right now I'm testing using XS6.5 with update 1024, snashoots is being deleted as is expected....but, after upgrade, the first backup is a full backup....is this right?
    Before upgrade: i had 3 files for each VDI in backup: one full, one delta and one delta checksum (assuming depth=2). After upgrade, the first backup created a second full, so I had 2 full backups and no delta. Subsequent backups created a delta and deleted the other full, keeping only one full and one delta. I've cleared log's too, so I'm not sure is this has anything related to backup.....I'mm try again clear backup logs and see if it create a new full backup or not.
    Also, I'll try with dundee TP2.



  • 1 full and multiple deltas is the right behavior. We manage to remove the old full. So that's exactly what you should expect 👍

    Yep, it's what i tought. But I already had one full and one delta before upgrade. I'm just curious because they created 2 fulls on first backup of new version, even when I had one full and one delta (the right). The second and other 'runs' are fine as expected.



  • That's because we changed the delta algorithm using a VM snapshot and not only VDI snapshots (to allow quiesce)

    Not it makes sense 🙂
    Im my case, its important to know that because my full backups takes a lot of time for some machines (about 8~10 hours for 1.5Tb), so I need to plan my backup time again for first time backup.



  • Yes sure 🙂 We couldn't do otherwise, sorry for the inconvenience!

    No problem, it's no incovenience. Every 'new feature' or improvment is good. 🙂
    About that new 'windows' for matching networks on pools, do you remember? I said that I would work on that in my vacations, but I had some health issues (my wife lost a baby 😢 ) and I didn't had time or 'head' to work on that, but I'll. I didn't forget.



  • Sorry to hear that 😞 Take your time to test it, the matching network it should work.



    1. Delta backups are now working fine in Dundee TP2!
    2. XO doesn't use 'XO_DELTA_BASE_VDI_SNAPSHOTT' name anymore, right? It's using VM name for each VDI.
    3. Load-balance is available for source? Because I could not find anything related to this. I've deleted and created again node_modules for xo-web just to make sure.


    1. Cool!
    2. it creates now a VM snapshot with a similar name (check your backuped VM and its snapshot panel, you'll see them)
    3. it's in a plugin (xo-server-load-balancer)

    Right.
    I'll wait, it's not available in NPM yet....maybe it's not syncronized yet.
