Immediate Transfer of Remote Backup Archives
The new backup system stores all archives for remote backup locally and transfers them only after all have been created. The impact of this may be a significant increase in disk space usage. The legacy backup system transferred the archive to the remote server and logged the details of the same. The new backup system in 11.38.0 (build 19) does not do either. Nor does it calculate diskspace needed to store all these archives locally or remotely. If inadequate diskspace are found the backup fails. Thus all resources used to create/transfer archives are wasted. This could be hours of resources on a production server, disastrous if temporarily stored on /home and disk space are exhausted.
