@girish no, they're pretty useless. Their web UI S3 console is such crap it can't handle the chatty API requests and keeps timing out. Also I may be wrong that multiple directories are because of failures and restarts. It just looks like multiple changed apps per day get a new dir.
So I am attempting other workarounds. Like creating a new bucket and just nuking the old one.
rsync isn't great for object store backups as it makes a ton of small files.
tgz isn't great as it's a lot of repeated information.
We need something hybrid that is the best of both.
Something like backing up to a local Minio much more quickly then doing an object to object store transfer offsite, which is much more efficient. This may also offer an opportunity to dedupe and further optimize.
@guyds there is retry logic already (see the 'retry' string in the logs) but it seems it kept crashing on retry.
Backups are indeed independent and each app is backed up separately. If you go into App -> Config -> Backup -> Create Backup, it will create a backup just for a specific app. But if you go to Backup -> Create Backup, it creates a "full backup" which is essentially looping through each app and creating a backup and then linking them all together. If one of those app backups fail, the "full backup" fails. Not sure what else can be done here. Do we want to have "full backups" but which are not full because 1 or 2 apps backups inside failed?
/me goes to reduce the size of the volume back to a perfectly sufficient 10 GB...
Oh, bollocks. You can't decrease the size of Hetzner Cloud Volumes, only increase them. So I'd have to create a whole new one and then and then and then...can't be bothered with all that so I guess I'll just stomach the slightly increased cost of 15 GB over 10 GB.
@odie Still stuck on this. The culprit is definitely that the usb network card fails to receive its configuration on boot. I cannot get netmanager to configure and initialize it at all. Only the two manual commands seem to work:
sudo ip addr add 192.168.9.101/24 dev enxc4411eb4c476
sudo ip link set dev enxc4411eb4c476 up
I have tried various thing with network manager, and I've tried adding a config file to systemd-networkd under /etc/systemd/network/ - the only thing I achieved, was to have every network freeze when I inserted the usb ethernet adapter (only to unfreeze as soon as I disconnected it). Tried keeping it disconnected for longer, just to see, but connections were frozen until I unplugged the usb network card. So I had to remove these config files.
Can anyone offer suggestions? I don't know where to even look for assistance on this now... Thanks!
@d19dotca thanks for reporting. The 404s only come from map files for the minified 3rdparty libraries here. Those are only fetched if you open the webinspector to enabled nicer debugging, so those are non-fatal and can safely be ignored.
