Taking ages with full backup - even though it says 100%?

Hi,

I’m trying to work out why a full backup (files, not image) is taking so long. Its going from Ubuntu to Ubuntu (client and server)

Here is what I see:

Then when I look at Activities, I see:

When looking at “View Log”, I see just a load of these events:

Why does it tell me its at 100%, when its still taking a good couple of hours after doing all this stuff?

The RAM is using up 3gb out of 4gb - but the CPU (dual processor) is only hitting 10-20% on each one… so doesn’t seem like its maxed out? We upgraded this server from a single to dual-processor (and double the RAM) to try and speed it up, but it still seems quite slow (incremental backups are decent, but full ones seem to take many many hours)

Very confusing :confused:

BTW: Does all that “DEBUG” logging slow the process down? I couldn’t seem to find anywhere that would lower the verbosity of it?

Thanks in advance!
