MariaBackup option to report and/or continue when corruption is encountered

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Currently Mariabackup aborts when it detects any InnoDB corruption. Needs an option to complete the backup and flag or log the corruption rather than leaving the entire server with no backup.

      In situations where Mariabackup detects corruption while taking a backup, it currently aborts where InnoDB would assert, making backing up a corrupted server impossible.

      This is obviously not practical when corruption in one table prevents making backups of the entire server.

      Would it be possible to address this need by adding a force option like innodb_focre_recovery=1 to mariabackup, for instance?
