Werk #6860: Fixed random backup issues: "Connection reset by peer"

Title Fixed random backup issues: "Connection reset by peer"
Date Nov 12, 2018
Checkmk Edition Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.5.0p8 1.6.0b1
Level Trivial Change
Class Bug Fix
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

The "mkbackup" and "omd backup" commands could fail while backing up a site when the rrdcached process was reloaded, restarted or stopped during the backup. This could also be triggered by an "Activate changes" action in the GUI.

The backup was then aborted with an error like this: "Failed to perform backup: [Errno 104] Connection reset by peer".

This issue did not affect backups performed for not running sites.
