I am attempting to determine the size of my compressed backup to send to Amazon S3.
I ran a forced backup to /backups (no external destination) and arrived at these sizes...

[2021-06-15 18:49:32 +0000] size is: 1128617848
[2021-06-15 18:49:32 +0000]
[2021-06-15 18:49:32 +0000] homesize is: 1633472512
[2021-06-15 18:49:32 +0000]
[2021-06-15 18:49:32 +0000] homefiles is: 47393
[2021-06-15 18:49:32 +0000]
[2021-06-15 18:49:32 +0000] mysqlsize is: 83912896

...is the 'homesize' the size of the complete backup that will be sent or is it a total of all the sizes?
Slightly confused here.

Hey there! the top "size" is the total for the package. Here is an example I performed on my local machine:

Code:
[2021-06-15 16:00:42 -0400] size is: 39303302
[2021-06-15 16:00:43 -0400]
[2021-06-15 16:00:43 -0400] homesize is: 99463168
[2021-06-15 16:00:43 -0400]
[2021-06-15 16:00:43 -0400] homefiles is: 3453
[2021-06-15 16:00:43 -0400]
[2021-06-15 16:00:43 -0400] mysqlsize is: 126431
