I just upgraded from restic 0.8.3 to 0.9.5.
I’m running Restic on a Debian Stretch host.
No matter whether I’m doing a recurring full system backup (with several file exclusions) or a backup of my Nextcloud over WebDAV, the backup (backup target is a SFTP server within the same datacenter, Gigabit connection) takes ways longer with 0.9.5 than it did with 0.8.3
Full System Backup (around 100 GB, 186339 files):
0.8.3: 8 minutes
0.9.5: 2 hours 50 minutes
Nextcloud Backup (WebDAV/davfs2, 62 GB, 14543 files):
0.8.3: <2 minutes
0.9.5: 4 hours 56 minutes
Any ideas whether restic changed the way how it discovers files? (I just did a brief look into the changelog but didn’t find any eye-catching change)
Any idea how I can trace down which component is responsible for that?
Call to restic is
restic -r sftp://storageHost/path --password-file pwfile backup --exclude-file=excludefile --one-file-system /
restic -r sftp://storageHost/path --password-file pwfile backup --exclude-file=excludefile .
The exclude files have less than 30 lines.
