DDM backups NOT compressed when using argument in post_olb_script


Article ID: 226101

There's an arg in post_olb_script for compress ($2 : COMPRESS or NOCOMPRESS ) but it doesn' t seem to be used there:

    ./ -f $backup_dir/db_$time_string.DDMDb > $backup_dir/ddm_backup.log 2>&1

Is there a way to have the ddm backup, that is now run as part scheduled online db backup (as per setup of vnm) to have the files compressed? 

ssdb backups are compressed now.


Release : 21.2

Component :



The perl script is calling mysqlbackup with the --compress parameter

I did a test with and without that parameter
