XtraBackup does not output arguments used.


    • Type: New Feature
    • Status: Done
    • Priority: Low
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Fix Version/s: 2.3.NEXT, 2.4.12
    • Component/s: None
    • Labels:


      Current versions of XtraBackup (2.4.9 as of this writing), don't show arguments used. This is very helpful for knowing what exact command was used, by checking at the output only (which some times is the case in Support tickets).


      This is what we get now:

      [output trimmed]

      If I'm not mistaken, innobackupex used to output them at the beginning, which was really helpful.
