In the document http://source.wiredtiger.com/develop/backup.html we state:
However this text is copied verbatim from the old log-based incremental backup documentation. The text refers to log records and seems to only really apply to log-based incremental backup.
MongoDB uses bulk load to create indexes.
This ticket would be to:
- Write a test for block-based incremental backup and bulk loading a new table to understand if this is an issue.
- If block-based incremental works with bulk load without an intervening full backup, then update the documentation.
- If block-based increment does not work with bulk load, change the text to be clearer about this from the block-based perspective.
