innobackupex produces compressed archives (can't apply logs)

ethanielethaniel EntrantInactive User Role Beginner
I am using "innobackupex --export --tables-file=/root/tables.txt /tmp/backup".

I've noticed that after the backup I can't apply logs immediately ("innobackupex --apply-log /tmp/backup/2016-02-14_03-43-42") and I need to decompress the files first ("innobackupex --decompress /tmp/backup/2016-02-14_03-43-42").

Without applying the logs my files are corrupted.
+ twice as time is wasted on compression/decompression.

Is there a way to export through innobackupex without compression? I love innobackup because it can export files in parallel.

    Ethaniel, are you following exactly what is being showed on the following manual's page?

    alking about the compressed files, it's due the use of --compress flag on executing backups as all the tablespaces including the shared one will be compressed with qpress and need to be decompressed before the apply-log phase. If you still have the compressed backup, try the follow to decompress files which extsion if .qp
    for i in $(find -name "*.qp"); do qpress -vd $i $(dirname ${i}) && rm -f $i; done

    After that you can go ahead and start the apply-log phase. Let us know please if it make sense and helped you, cheers.
