Well, after fixing my cronjob once more (it seems to get its syntax changed which makes no sense whatsoever but there you go) I cannot do backups anymore.
I have less than ten vms on my ESXi host (homelab) and in between vertical backup working nicely and now, a new VM was added to the bunch. So today I wanted to fix the thing and ran vertical backup manually:
/vmfs/volumes/5a58ee90-ac2f306e-8518-002590f39cea/verticalbackup/vertical backup Jellyfin
I received this:
Listing all virtual machines
Backing up Jellyfin, id: 11, vmx path: /vmfs/volumes/SSD_Datastore/Jellyfin/Jellyfin.vmx, guest os: ubuntu64Guest
No previous backup found. Listing existing chunks
Failed to list the directory ‘/vmfs/volumes/b38f5d7f-cf4c0b07/verticalbackup/chunks/88’: MemoryError()
I read elsewhere that any process running directly on the host is limited in memory…
So can I run vertical backup on vm too? Do I increase chunk size? Or what do I do here? All VMs combined account for a good 200GB and not more… it seems weird that I would bottleneck with such a small environment.
