MongoDB Incremental Backup are same size as basebackup | PBM

I’m using Percona Backup to backup my self hosted mongodb replica set, I have a cronjob that runs the command

$ pbm backup --type incremental

to create an incremental backup on top of the base of incremental backup. But the size of incremental backups are almost same to that of the base backup. What my concern mainly is currently we don’t have much changing data in our database so it shouldnt be backup up new extra gb each hour, when we dont have that much data in our db.

I’m assuming this is a problem? Let me know how I may fix this? Is it because of bad configuration?

@baniya.sabinn

Initially we saw the base backup with size [2.04GB] then for 1st increment it was [1012MB] and for 2nd increment [1.72GB] and so on. Looking over the recent logs it went to near ~2GB which is the size of Increment base backup.

By any chance did you observe any recent data activity( Insertion/Deletion) etc on this environment ?

Can you please run the below command for a base and few incremental backup samples for a review ?

pbm describe-backup **2024-01-31T13:10:25Z**

Note:- Please change the backup file accordingly.

Also please gather the below details in order to understand your PBM environment and configurations/logs etc.

shell> pbm logs --event=backup

shell> pbm status
shell> pbm config

shell> pbm version

Moreover, can you please provide a few samples from storage statistics in a span of 1 hour interval ?

Mongo> db.runCommand( {dbStats: 1 } )

Exactly, what version of MongoDB you are using ?

Hey @anil.joshi . Thanks for your reply. I have listed the answers to your questions below, please find them.

No

shell> pbm logs --event=backup

These are the logs of that time when those backups were made, currently Im getting backups failing error. But I think the more related one here will be the date in which backups were made.

Exactly, what version of MongoDB you are using ?

Using MongoDB:          6.0.11-8

@anil.joshi mentioning just so it doesn’t get out of sight!

Thanks for sharing the details. The information mostly looks fine and no such suspicious activity.

Although, I see only one sample of db.runCommand( {dbStats: 1 } ). It Could be better to have a few more samples while the backup is ongoing to confirm the changes. Along with that you can also share the mongo error log file [mongod.log ] and the output of db.currentOP() to check for the running processes/queries if any.

Going forward I have tried to test the behaviour at my environment as well however no such anomalies detected. Please find the below outputs taken for both PBM (2.3.0 OR 2.3.1) versions.
