Move rsnapshot to other server

Move rsnapshot to other server
July 07, 2016 01:18AM
I have to move the whole rsnapshot pool to another server.
Any hint on how to do this? I think that running plain rsync between
servers would break all hard-links.

Any suggestions?

Additionally, which is the best FS for the new server? I'm thinking to
use XFS. What do you think ?

ZFS, regardless.

rhel crew is pushing xfs pretty hard, but they're also pushing systemctl, so......

Or butter. It's pretty good too.

Or just drink lots of whisky.

So, are you suggesting ZFS over XFS ?

anyway, my biggest concern is how to move data between these two host.
I don't think that a plan "rsync" would be ok.

You can use rsync with the H option and that will preserve hard links.

To preserve hard links, you need to use -H switch. I used this command
to copy rsnapshot backup directory from another server:

rsync -avz -H --numeric-ids --progress root < at > server-ip:/mnt/backup/ /mnt/backup/

I use xfs on software RAID10 and it works just fine. I think your
biggest worry regarding performances should be that RAID6, not the file
system.

HTH

For the initial replication "rsync -aH" is your friend much as it is
for rsnapshot itself. You can actually make a tuned rsnapshot config
to do nothing but make,a single snapshot copy of another rsnapshot
repository.

There are other technologies available for the first replication. Aa
bit of pruning and only grabbing the last snapshots, and using "cp -a"
for systems that can see the filesystem of the other systrem over NFS
can be your friend, as can "tar" or even "star" to copy SELinux
attributes.

It's also important to be aware that rsync does *not* normally
checksum files with matching names, timestamps, and sizes. I've
actually been bitten this way....

Unequivocally. Also look at btrfs, but it's less mature. Or just drinking more, which is what I do.

We're up to 19pb with our latest hardware refresh. Also why I drink.

You missed my humor.
Sorry. I was making a joke.

Use zfs and run raidz2. Feed ZFS the hardware directly: don't put something else in between ZFS and the hardware.

ZFS recommends *not* using hardware RAID.

I'd recommend always using software RAID, partly because raidz *is*
reliable, and partly because hardware RAID will fuck you over if the
hardware dies and you don't have a replacement available that
understands how it has laid data out on the physical disks.

-H takes an enormous amount of memory overhead and it's overkill for
this application.
You don't need to know the linkages between non-successive snapshots.
Why not replicate rsnapshot's behavior?
The following was written for juggling snapshots on raids connected to
the same server, but it could be adapted
for a remote target:

#!/bin/bash
if [ -z "$1" ]; then
echo "Copies one rsnapshot host backup set from one disk to
another"
echo "Syntax: $0 srcpath hostname destpath"
echo "Example: $0 /mnt/das1/snapshots webserver
/mnt/das3/snapshots"
exit 1
fi
if ! [ -d $1 -a -d ${1}/daily.0/$2 -a -d $3 ]; then
echo "Invalid path(s)"
exit 1
fi
date
echo "======================= daily.0 ======================="
/usr/local/bin/rsync -aS --info=progress2 --delete --numeric-ids
${1}/daily.0/${2}/ ${3}/daily.0/${2}/
last="daily.0"
for i in daily.{1,2,3,4,5,6} weekly.{0,1,2,3}
monthly.{0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12} ; do
if [ -d ${1}/${i}/$2 ]; then
echo "======================= $i ======================="
mkdir -p ${3}/$i
/usr/local/bin/rsync -aS --info=progress2 --delete
--numeric-ids --link-dest=${3}/${last}/${2}/ ${1}/${i}/${2}/ ${3}/${i}/${2}/
last=$i
fi
done
echo "======================= DONE ======================="
date
exit

My friend, if you're trying for irony about your own comments, it's
obscure. Stick with the rubber chicken jokes for a few days.

More seriously, after more than 25 years in the biz, I've never laid
hands on ZFS and know of it only as overpriced hype that burns
hardware and administrative resources better spent on a real backup
system like:

(small musical fanfaire)

A much less expensive server running rsnapshot, maybe with an archival
USB drive rotation attached to it.

That works well when you don't have much data to back up. Once you're
backing up multiple TB, and your data is constantly expanding, then ZFS
becomes Really Handy.

But if you use zfs as your backup, and zfs as your regular file system,
it seems you would not need rsnapshot at all, there are scripts which
create snapshots in somewhat the same way as rsnapshot. However, I
don't like to have the backup system use the same technology, just to be
safer. Also, it seems to be easier to do restores from older versions
with rsnapshot than zfs.
