Bug Description

[In:Percona XtraBackup Documentation]

This recipe was suggested by Matthew Kent (37 signals):


 I would have noticed this sooner had I the piped the innobackupex --stream=tar output through a checksum on both ends. You may want to update places like
 http://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/howtos/recipes_ibkx_stream.html to suggest it.

 ## On the destination host:
 nc -l 9999 | tee >(sha1sum > destination_checksum) > /data/backups/backup.tar
 ## On the source host:
 innobackupex --stream=tar ./ | tee >(sha1sum > source_checksum) | nc desthost 9999
 ## compare the checksums
