Incremental is very slow (8.0.12)


I am running a full backup followed by a daily incremental. The full backup can take roughly 31 hours as my database is almost 4T. When I run an incremental it takes roughly the same time as the full backup but will only record 18G of changes. Is there any settings i can check in my my.cnf file that i can change to increase the speed of the incremental?

Hi, are you tracking changes to individual pages? See Incremental Backup in MySQL Using Page Tracking for details.
