Percona XtraBackup enables MySQL backups without blocking user queries, making it ideal for companies with large data sets and mission-critical applications that cannot tolerate long periods of downtime. Offered free as an open source solution, Percona XtraBackup drives down backup costs while providing unique features for MySQL backups.

New Features:

  • Percona XtraBackup has implemented basic support for MySQL 5.7 and Percona Server 5.7.

Bugs Fixed:

  • Percona XtraBackup didn’t respect innodb_log_file_size variable stored in backup-my.cnf. Bug fixed #1527081.
  • If server would run out of space while backups were taken with innobackupex –rsync option backup process would fail but innobackupex would still complete with completed OK! message. Bug fixed #1537256.
  • Percona XtraBackup was silently skipping extra arguments. Bug fixed #1533542 (Fungo Wang).

Other bugs fixed: #1544671 and #1535535.

    first: xtrbackup output
    output suffix ans position ,2.4 is string and 2.2 is int

    2.4 output master binlog file and pos
    MySQL binlog position: filename ‘binlog.000006’, position 154
    MySQL slave binlog position: master host ‘’, filename ‘binlog.000007’, position ‘15195’

    2.2 or 2.1
    innodbackupex: MySQL binlog position: filename ‘binlog.000006’, position ‘154’
    innodbackupex: MySQL slave binlog position: master host ‘’, filename ‘binlog.000007’, position 15195

    second: xtrbackup use default user
    when I have
    user = xtrbackup
    user = mysql

    innobackupex –defaults-file=/etc/my.cnf –slave-info –safe-slave-backup …..
    It use default user as mysql not xtrbackup
    It will use the last user in the config, not [client] section use
