Percona Backup for MongoDB 2.2.1 (2023-07-27)

Release date July 27, 2023
Installation 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 non-sharded replica set), and for restoring those backups to a specific point in time.

Release Highlights

With this release you can increase the wait time for backup to start, thus eliminating the PBM failure when creating $backupCursor takes longer than usual.


  • PBM-1154 - Add config option to change wait timeout for backup start status

Bugs Fixed

  • PBM-1151 - Fixed the issue with PBM crashing when Percona Server for MongoDB fails to open $backupCursor

  • PBM-1155 - Retry to open $backupCursor during incremental backups in case of failure
