Hi all,

Sorry for being late in thread.

We're also having backup issues with some VMs since some weeks.

We see a different log though:

This was last saturday; had to Stop/Start the VM this morning. We backup 
this VM on satudays, it has blocked on 14th nov, 21th nov, 28th nov, and 
12th dec. It "strangely" missed hanging on 5th dec :-)

VM is on ceph storage backed by SSD, Debian 10 OS. We have other almost 
identical VMs not affected... (various buildbot workers). Host is Ryzen 
1700.
