Re: Cronjob dont start - Running XSIBackup processes

If the previous backup takes too long to complete, XSIBackup will not execute to avoid parallel processes clogging your system.

Instead you should use the --on-success and --on-error event handlers, or program the following backup later on to make sure the previous has ended.

Take on account that XSIBackup, as stated in the man and feature page, does not have a true Borg client and sends all data to the Borg server. Thus, depending on the data you pretend to backup and your available network bandwidth, Borg might not be your best choice among available XSIBackup backup programs.
