    Estimating and monitoring progress

    Hello everyone,

    Enthusiastic user of ZeXtras here, I am in the middle of moving a production server, upgrading its operating system etc but have some questions.

    To be doubly safe, I was thinking of having a ZexTras Backup export and will also be doing the Migration tool.

    1) I have started the web-based ZexTras Backup export and has been running overnight (15+hours) but I have no visibility as to how long it has left. Looking at my target dir, nothing is changing but I have not received an email notification of the completion either.
    What '/opt/zimbra' directory is it backing up? If I knew that, I could compare between the two and perhaps estimate. Or is there a different way to monitor progress? I am worried that it may have crashed and just waiting...

    2) Same goes for the Migration tool, is there a way to estimate size and while it is running monitor it?

    Thank you for any pointers!
    Greg

    You should take a look at the command line tools in ZeXtras, you can find details in the wiki (although they're not exactly up-to-date): https://wiki.zextras.com/wiki/ZeXtras_CLI#ZxBackup_CLI

    I think you'll need to use the following (when you've started a backup via the cli or in the Web UI):

    Code:
    zxsuite  backup monitor 
    command monitor requires more parameters
    
    Syntax:
       zxsuite backup monitor {operation_uuid} [attr1 value1 [attr2 value2...]]
    
    PARAMETER LIST
    
    NAME                 TYPE      
    operation_uuid(M)    Uiid      
    operation_host(O)    String    
    
    (M) == mandatory parameter, (O) == optional parameter
    Regards
