Linux backups hang on /var/lib/named/proc/kcore file

Problem

Linux backups hang and when reviewing the active job log, the following file is listed:

/var/lib/named/proc/kcore

Cause

The /var/lib/named/proc/kcore file is a virtual file which contains the RAM the kernel can allocate and should not be touched or read.

The entire proc directory from root is already excluded in the ralus.cfg file; however, if  filesystem has proc configured in a different location (example: /var/lib/named/proc/kcore) the backup will hang.

 

Solution

Manually add a line to exclude the /var/lib/named/proc directory in the ralus.cfg file
