Backup history and progress information is logged to the
mysql.backup_progress tables, so that it can

to easily monitor backup operations. For the details of the

innobackup command is now available on

changes to the syntax as specified in the manual.

reduce the flush cycle of the operating system cache and improve
backup performance. This option is set on by default.
The apply-log step for an incremental backup would fail if the
datadir values specified in the configuration
file were not the same.
