openSUSE Recommended Update: xtrabackup: Update to 2.0.5 and fixed path of
MySQL 5.5 xtrabackup binary

Announcement ID: openSUSE-RU-2013:0513-1
Rating: low
Affected Products:
openSUSE 12.3

An update that has 0 recommended fixes can now be installed.


This update fixes the following issues for xtrabackup:
- bnc#809505: fix path of MySQL 5.5 xtrabackup binary
- update to 2.0.5
- new features:
+ New option --defaults-extra-file to read options
before the standard defaults-file, e.g. for separate
username/passwords crontab or a script somewhere in the
- bugs fixed:
+ In case of streaming backups, innobackupex would
resume the XtraBackup process and then wait for it to
finish before running UNLOCK TABLES. This caused database
to be unnecessarily locked with FLUSH TABLES WITH READ
LOCK. Innobackupex now waits only till log copying is
finished to unlock the databases.
+ innobackupex error messages referencing the data
directory have been extended to show the path of the data
directory mentioned in the error message.
+ Partitioned tables were not correctly handled by the
--databases, --include, --tables-file options of
innobackupex, and by the --tables and --tables-file options
of XtraBackup.
+ When built-in compression was used, XtraBackup was
doing unbuffered writes to the destination file or stream
in very small chunks which in return caused inefficient I/O.
+ Unnecessary long sleep() in innobackupex lead to
+ If innobackupex would crash it would leave the
xtrabackup_suspended file on the filesystem. This could
then cause innobackupex to think XtraBackup has suspended
itself the moment it started, and then when XtraBackup
actually does suspend itself, innobackupex would wait for
it to end and wouldn’t re-remove the suspend file, leading
to a wait deadlock.
+ innobackupex would fail to recognize MariaDB 5.2 and
MariaDB 5.3
