    Is any easy way to stop active backup tasks?

    My system hangs when performing backup.

    You can just kill backup processes at least.

    Thanks for your quick reply, but I need to know which process to kill (to make sure I kill the correct process).

    I suspect the process is this one:

    23229 root 20 0 4020 732 352 S 29 0.0 0:29.62 gzip

    It that correct?

    Yes, gzip is one of backup process. Also you can try to find most loaded backup related process with top command.

    I can not find any tasks in processlist, and in Plesk admin, there is one active backup task.

    It seems that I can not stop it. Any suggestion how to find this task (to stop it or kill it)?

    This is really a hopeless situation ... why on earth can't I stop a backup job?

    It seems that our server started yet another backup after it finished the previous one after a reboot. And there is no way to stopping it. The responsetime on the server is so slow due to this.
