Installing Percona Backup for MongoDB

Percona Backup for MongoDB is a distributed, low-impact solution for consistent backups of MongoDB sharded clusters and replica sets. This is a tool for creating consistent backups across a MongoDB sharded cluster (or a single replica set), and for restoring those backups to a specific point in time.

Release Highlights

New Features

  • PBM-776: Allow data restore into the replica set with a different name

  • PBM-866: Add the ability to wait for the backup operation to finish and print the result

  • PBM-782: Allow saving Point-in-Time Recovery oplog without base snapshot

  • PBM-838: Add the ability to configure default compression method and level for backups


  • PBM-828: Add the full reference configuration file to packages

  • PBM-751: Format timestamps according to RFC3339 (Thanks to Damiano Albani for reporting this issue)

Bugs Fixed

  • PBM-820: Fix a bug where PBM crashed if backup cancelled right after it started by cancelling the backup gracefully
