I’m using XtraBackup 2.1.8 installed using Percona RPMs on RHEL 6.5 x86_64 to stream a backup to another server through ssh using tar method. Previous backups run with the same script were successfull, but the last backup crashed with the following error:
innobackupex: Error: The xtrabackup child process has died at /usr/bin/innobackupex line 2622.
Line 2622 of /usr/bin/innobackupex is:
die “The xtrabackup child process has died”;
How can I get the logs from xtrabackup ? Is there a way to determine why the backup failed ?
