I’m new to this backup and sorry if the question is dumb. After executing the backup command:
innobackupex --user=xxxx --password=xxxxxxx /var/lib/mysql_backup
it ended up with: innobackupex: completed OK!
so far so good, but i looked at the folder’s size and it was 355 MB , but earlier backups are 4,1 GB. When i opened them they had these two files: ib_logfile0 and ib_logfile1, which are missing in the new backup folder.
Can you explain me what are these and why are they missing in the new backup folder?
