how can i decompress a file with s2 extension created by pbm backup?
Is there a benchmark of compression speed with the variuos provided extension?
You can uncompress the backups using s2 utility.
Note: This tool is not officially supported by Percona.
##Install the S2 utility to uncompress it with below: $ sudo yum install go $ go install github.com/klauspost/compress/s2/cmd/s2c@latest && go install github.com/klauspost/compress/s2/cmd/s2d@latest
Once installed uncompress the backups by using below:
BACKUP_DATA_PATH=/backup/mongo_backups/ #Uncompress using below: for i in $(find $BACKUP_DATA_PATH -type f -name "*.s2"); do go/bin/s2d --rm $i >> out.txt; done
Regarding benchmarking of compression speed test, please follow our pbm-page troubleshooting here.
Thank you for tuor answer .
I’ll giv it a try (in the meanwhile i switched to gzip compression, that is fast enough at the moment and compresses more)
