Sorry, I thought that when you said


...you meant a specific issue with


...which I don't.

All I was trying to do was add a bit more detail to the OP's post. Unfortunately I don't have a cPanel Store or Tickets account so I'd need to raise it via my dedicated server provider.
As long as you have root access to the server, you can always open at ticket at https://tickets.cpanel.net/submit/ by scrolling to the bottom of the page.

That in itself isn't a problem. However, there is now no cpbackup log with the email. There is just this single line in the email body. With 11.28, there was a cpbackup log emailed through as an attachment.
Just adding a me too to this. I am about to submit a ticket.

Re: What does this mean? [cpbackup] Setting I/O priority to reduce system l

I was wondering if I can give more priority to the backup process?
prio 3 gives me a lot of: Waiting for load to go down to continue... when copying the homedir....
It is taking way to long now to backup within my time frame.

Any help much appreciated.

You could simply increase the WHM > Tweak Settings > Extra CPUs for server load option from 0 to 5 or 10, which means that load of 5 or 10 on the machine will need to exist before the machine delays the backups. You don't have to renice the process in order to increase the load threshold considered too high for backups to proceed.
