I trying to backup some InnoDB databases, but I noticed that the backed-up ibdata1 is as large as the whole databases.
What am I doing wrong ?
I used :
innobackupex --user=root --databases=“db1 db2 db3” /my/home/
innobackupex --apply-log /my/home/xtrabackup/
and then innobackupex --copy-back /my/home/xtrabackup/
