    Just had an issue with some backups and checked the transport logs and found this:

    Code:
    [2015-04-29 02:14:25 -0400] warn [cpbackup_transporter] Upload attempt failed: /backup/2015-04-29/accounts/psabdns3.tar.gz not a readable file with fixed size at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/Transport/Files/AmazonS3.pm line 173.

    It then was unable to upload the file for 3 attempts. Immediately after that there was an error packing another account which never even created the file. It then failed to upload the non-existing file 3 times before giving up.

    Code:
    [2015-04-29 02:14:25 -0400] warn [cpbackup_transporter] Upload attempt failed: “Cpanel::Transport::Files::put” attempted to validate a file that does not exist: /backup/2015-04-29/accounts/millersv.tar.gz at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/LoggerAdapter.pm line 26
    etc......
    
    
    BUT, after that it successfully uploaded 5 more accounts before finishing. We haven't had any issues with this until recently. It's been running updates this way for months now.

    Hello,

    The error messages you provided indicate that you might be running short on disk space. Try using the "df -h" and "df -i" commands to verify you are not close to your space and inode limits. It's possible the failed accounts are larger than the others, and thus require more space.

    Thank you.

    It doesn't look to be the case, see below. Also, we don't store backups on the server itself, it uploads to S3 which helps keep space usage down. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    root@psa [~]# df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/vzfs 120G 23G 98G 19% /
    none 1.0G 4.0K 1.0G 1% /dev

    root@psa [~]# df -i
    Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
    /dev/vzfs 1000000 465996 534004 47% /

    You still need local space available for the backup generation itself, as it's generated on the local server and stored there temporarily until it's transferred to the remote destination. That being said, your server looks to have sufficient space available. How large is the account it failed at?

    Thank you.

    To update, it looks like the server reached it's memory limit during the generation of certain backups, resulting in the failure to successfully backup those accounts.

    Thank you.
