MariaDB Backup using Percona XtraBackup
Percona suggests to use the xtrabackup script for taking backup but it does not have anything to take compressed backup.The compact backup reduces the size of 48gb database to 47gb which is of no use. How to acheive compressed backup using percona xtrabackup utility??
