Backup stopped abnormally

Running an incremental backup on vertica 7.1

nohup /opt/vertica/bin/ --task backup --config-file /home/dbadmin/BackupDev.ini | tee /home/dbadmin/backup_log/FullBackup_out.txt


after 4 hours , the process is no longer running and the backup not done . 

the snapsho folder is not empty but the backup process is no longer running . 


no info in the FullBackup_out.txt and when querying the databsae_snapshots table , it just hangs with no results . 


what could be the issue
