2 chunks folders with < 500KB data after 4 hours. Is this normal?


#1

So I am backing up a relativiely small VM of about 8GB. However its past 5 hours or os and yet the wasabi bucket still shows only 2 chunks folders with hardly any data. Is it because it wont propagate until complete?

Reason I ask is because Duplicati through wasabi buckets shows me fairly quickly what files have been uploaded as part of its segmentation of a VeeamZip. In the same time span I see about 10GB of data with Duplicati.

I should mention my first backup failed and when I decided to try a different VM, the 8GB one, is when I noticed this. It’s still going too. And I dont see any progress indicator. Here is the ouput in console so far:

Welp, there is no pending uploads anymore. But backup list says no vms in wasabi. Nice.


#3

Try uploading with 4 threads:

./vertical backup Office --threads 4

‘Broken pipe’ could be a temporary network error. If you keep getting the Another backup job is in progress error, run pkill vertical and delete the file .verticalbackup/plock.

I can confirm now that this was caused by the bucket being in the us-west-1 region. You can switch the s3 url to access such a bucket:

./vertical init hostid s3://s3.us-west-1.wasabisys.com/bucket

BTW, can you change your screen name on this forum so it won’t cause confusion.


#5

Ah ok, I was following Wasabi’s guide and must have misinterpreted the directions or they need to update them. Also, name changed. I use my own email domain so the user is based per website, thats why you saw that.

Actually looks like youll need to do that. System wont let me.
