Summary0000755: Always Incremental "Always Incremental Max Full Age" not working properly
DescriptionHi,


I'm using the always incremental scheme. But it looks like the "Always Incremental Max Full Age" is not working correctly.

I see that the full seems to be consolidated every 2 days instead of every 6/12 days.

This leads to huge space usage which is not affordable :|

Also it seems that the older backups are not purged automatically




Steps To ReproduceUse following config:

Job {
    Name = "Consolidate"
    Type = "Consolidate"
    Accurate = "yes"
    JobDefs = "DefaultJob"

    Schedule = "ConsolidateCycle"
    Max Full Consolidations = 3
}

JobDefs {
    Name = "HPJobInc"
    Type = Backup
    Level = Full
    Write Bootstrap = "/var/lib/bareos/%c.bsr"
    Accurate=yes
    Level=Full
    Messages = Standard
    Always Incremental = yes
    Always Incremental Job Retention = 20 days
    Always Incremental Max Full Age = 12 days # should always be less then Always Incremental Job Retention > Every 12 days the full backup is also consolidated
    Always Incremental Keep Number = 5 # Guarantee that at least the specified number of Backup Jobs will persist, even if they are older than "Always Incremental Job Retention".
    Maximum Concurrent Jobs = 5 # Let up to 5 jobs run
}



Storage {
    Name = vps53320-incr
    Device = vps53320-incr # bareos-sd Device
    Media Type = vps53320
    Address = backups.hosted-power.com # backup server fqdn > sent to client sd
    Password = "xxxx" # password for Storage daemon
    Maximum Concurrent Jobs = 1 # required for virtual full
    # @/etc/bareos/storage-defaults.conf
}

Storage {
    Name = vps53320-cons
    Device = vps53320-cons # bareos-sd Device
    Media Type = vps53320
    Address = backups.hosted-power.com # backup server fqdn > sent to client sd
    Password = "xxxx" # password for Storage daemon
    Maximum Concurrent Jobs = 1 # required for virtual full
    # @/etc/bareos/storage-defaults.conf
}


Pool {
    Name = vps53320-incr
    Pool Type = Backup
    Storage = vps53320-incr
    LabelFormat = "vol-incr-"
    Maximum Volume Jobs = 1 # a new file for each backup that is done
    Recycle = yes # Bareos can automatically recycle Volumes
    Auto Prune = no # Don’t prune jobs from the volume. Let this be done by Consolidate.
    Next Pool = vps53320-cons
    Volume Use Duration = 23h
}

Pool {
    Name = vps53320-cons
    Pool Type = Backup
    Storage = vps53320-cons
    LabelFormat = "vol-cons-"
    Maximum Volume Jobs = 1 # a new file for each backup that is done
    Recycle = yes # Bareos can automatically recycle Volumes
    Auto Prune = no # Don’t prune jobs from the volume. Let this be done by Consolidate.
    Volume Use Duration = 23h
}


Job {
    Type = Backup
    Name = "backup-vps53320"
    Client = vps53320
    Pool = vps53320-incr
    Full Backup Pool = vps53320-cons
    FileSet = "windows-all"
    Schedule = "always-inc-cycle-1"
    #Defaults
    JobDefs = "HPJobInc"
}





This is what is produces for one of the clients with this scheme:
