# ./xsibackup --backup-point=/vmfs/volumes/backup --backup-type=running --mail-from=email.sender@yourdomain.com --mail-to=email.recipient@anotherdomain.com --smtp-srv=smtp.33hops.com --smtp-port=25 --smtp-usr=username --smtp-pwd=password --test-mode=true

with my parrameters and nothing happens.

I don't recieve error, I don't recieve e-mail, nothing adds to my backup folder, no logs I can see in installation_path/var/logsxsibackup.log

Please help me understand what should I do to fix this.

You are missing the --backup-prog argument.
Remove --test-mode=true to run a backup

# ./xsibackup --backup-prog=Vmkfstools --backup-point=/vmfs/volumes/backup --backup-type=running --mail-from=email.sender@yourdomain.com --mail-to=email.recipient@anotherdomain.com --smtp-srv=smtp.33hops.com --smtp-port=25 --smtp-usr=username --smtp-pwd=password

Our fault, we had left a breakpoint in the code, we'll fix that and publish the corrected version today
...
UPDATE:
We already published the corrected version. Please confirm if everything is working as expected.
