Get started with Quickstart Guide for Percona XtraBackup.

Percona XtraBackup (PXB) is a 100% open source backup solution for all versions of Percona Server for MySQL and MySQL® that performs online non-blocking, tightly compressed, highly secure full backups on transactional systems. Maintain fully available applications during planned maintenance windows with Percona XtraBackup.

Release highlights

Percona XtraBackup 8.0.34 allows taking backups of Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.35 and MySQL 8.0.35 and higher versions.


The ZSTD compression algorithm is moved to General Availability and becomes the default compression algorithm for the --compress option.

The QuickLZ compression algorithm is removed and is not used for --backup. The --decompress option still uses qpress for backward compatibility to decompress backups taken by older versions of Percona XtraBackup.

New features

  • PXB-3059: Adds the --redo-log-arch-dir=name option to
    set the redo log archive destination directory. (Thanks to wangbincmss for providing the patch)


Bug fix

  • PXB-3073: An unresponsive host may cause xbcloud to become stuck. Added a --timeout option to xbcloud.

  • PXB-3088: Percona XtraBackup could not prepare the backup if the redo log size was more than 128G. (Thanks to Ahmed Et-tanany for providing the fix for this issue)

  • PXB-3079: The prepare phase skipped rollback on encrypted tables and was completed successfully if the keyring plugin was not loaded.

  • PXB-2860: Percona XtraBackup locked table even when the --tables-exclude and --lock-ddl-per-table options were used.
