pg_probackup 2.4.1 has been released
Posted on 2020-06-25 by Postgres Professional
pg_probackup is a utility to manage backup and recovery of PostgreSQL database cluster. It is designed to perform periodic full and incremental page-level backups of the PostgreSQL instance that enable you to restore the server in case of a failure.
- Incremental restore. During incremental restore the valid unchanged pages available in the destination data directory are not rewritten. This greatly increases the speed, reduces the network load and I/O consumption.
- New option for restore command:
-I | --incremental-mode mode. Two incremental restore modes are available:
- The memory consumption during backup and merge operations is reduced.
- The speed of restore for incremental backup chains is greatly improved, in some extreme cases of particularly long chains - by an order of magnitude.
- Remote backup speed is improved thanks to moving the whole process of scanning the remote data directory tree to the remote agent. On systems with high network latency and large amount of files the speed gain can be significant.
