Description Eli Mesika 2012-09-19 05:53:47 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #858640 +++

Description of problem:

Using the "--column-inserts" argument for pg_dump, increases the DB restore tens of times compared to not using it. Suggestion is to remove that param by default.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

rhev 3.0, rhev 3.1

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Generate a backup of rhevm and rhevm-history DB using pg_dump --column-inserts (check additional info)
2. Restore the backup

Actual results:

For big enough databases (10+ Gbs) I've seen the process can take from 30minutes to 2 hours

Expected results:

DB restore finishes in a few minutes, usually in less than a minute.

Additional info:


And RHEV 3.1 beta backup.sh script

this may also be relevant/affecting the installer which backsup the db

Comment 6 Pavel Stehlik 2012-10-08 10:48:52 EDT
FailedQA - si20 - only backupdb.sh script contains the new option - the default for rhevm-upgrade is still '--column-inserts'.

Patch posted for review:
Comment 10 Moran Goldboim 2012-10-16 09:20:15 EDT
as for now --column-inserts was removed from setup scripts, and open a bz866964 to track the move of usage in backup.sh- 
bz#866964 - rhevm-upgrade and rhevm-cleanup should use backup.sh to backup DB
Comment 11 Pavel Stehlik 2012-10-19 08:53:18 EDT
ok - si21.1
