mariabackup: create method for backup tool to extract from mbstream

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      As I mentioned in MDEV-15713, some people seem to think that the --stream option can be used like:

      mariabackup --backup --stream=xbstream --user=root > backup.xbstream
      cat backup.xbstream | mariabackup --prepare --stream=xbstream
      

      The proper method to use it seems to be more like this:

      mariabackup --backup --stream=xbstream --user=root > backup.xbstream
      mbstream -x < backup.xbstream
      mariabackup --prepare --target-dir=./
      

      Some users think that mariabackup should have a way to extract the files from the mbstream archive itself without making the user go through the extra step.

      Is that feasible and/or desirable?
