MyIsam tables

I’m new to XtraBackup. Just tried my first backup. I’m trying to understand the results. The database I backed up was on a remote host and all the tables in the db are in MyIsam format. Yet all I see is the Innodb files in the backup results directory. Can someone explain how this works and confirm I got a valid result? I’d like to use this utility but the results aren’t really transparent to me (at least not yet).

Can you provide the following:

  • xtrabackup --version
  • full command used to run the backup
  • full log output generated by the above command
  • ls -al /path/to/backupdir
