      Avoid running backup-gitlab twice; reuse tarballs · 5c953c00
      Evangelos Foutras authored
      The official backup tool for GitLab takes many hours to run because it
      puts everything inside tarballs and then gzips each one. It seems safe
      and much more efficient to skip this step for the offsite backup while
      reusing the tarballs generated by the first backup to the Storage Box.
      Should save ~5 hours from the borg-backup-offsite.service execution.

      Limit Borg CPU usage on single vCPU servers to 50% · f5b566fa
      Evangelos Foutras authored
      This is meant to address the daily HostHighCpuLoad alert triggered on
      lists.archlinux.org, which due to the large number of files it has to
      process (around 1.5 million). Machines with more than one virtual CPU
      don't need this as Borg is currently single-threaded and thus limited
      to one core.

      Split out borg into two services · fffc225e
      Sven-Hendrik Haase authored
      The reason is that we might want to independently retry the offsite backup in case it fails but not rerun the primary backup in that case.
      This isn't possible with the current setup and so we'll have to split this up into two oneshot services.
      The way it works is that borg-backup.service will schedule borg-backup-offsite.service to run after it which ensures that
      no two backups are running at the same time and also that they can be indendently retried if one of them fails.
