Percona Backup for MongoDB 1.8.0 (2022-06-09)¶
June 9, 2022
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.
Ability to restore data to a replica set with a different name and configuration. This extends the list of environments compatible for the restore.
When you use EBS-snapshots or other tools for physical backups, you no longer have to create a mandatory base backup snapshot in |Percona Backup for MongoDB| as the starting point for Point-in-Time Recovery oplog slicing. This reduces time and effort on managing excessive backups and makes Point-in-Time Recovery from physical or storage-level backups more straightforward.
The ability to wait for the backup operation to finish before doing further actions through the session lock. This simplifies the automation of operations with Percona Backup for MongoDB.
Ability to define backup compression level and method in Percona Backup for MongoDB configuration.
To simplify the Percona Backup for MongoDB configuration, the example configuration file is now included in the Percona Backup for MongoDB package.
Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish) is added to the list of supported platforms
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-820: Fix a bug where PBM crashed if backup cancelled right after it started by cancelling the backup gracefully
