InfluxDB 2.1.1 backup is slow


We have an issue with backup execution time, it’s taking too long time, around 1 day and 20 hours.

Currently we are using influxDB 2.1, the total databases size is 500GB.

Before 1 months, we upgraded from 1.8.4 to 2.1.1, the execution time for backup before the upgrade was 2 hours only.

Directly after the upgrade, the backup took around 20 hours, then after one week, the backup taking longer time and backup finished in around 1 day and 20 hours.

Any idea, why the backup taking longer time after the upgrade? which its is increase from 2 hours to 1 day and 20 hours

Any suggestion to reduce the backup time?

Best Regard
