We’ve been using xtrabackup for several years and it turned out to be a great tool. However, each time we run a full backup, this tool eats all available RAM, making other services work slowly during a high traffic period. Is there any option available like “” but when running a full and not a prepare backup? Or any other option to run this process limiting RAM usage?
I’ve tried to set ulimit -v to assign limits on virtual memory on a ssh session when running a backup with the xtrabackup tool and still eats all available RAM.
