Bergen from Proven Scaling (which I had the pleasure to meet
in person during the MySQL Conference & Expo in Santa Clara last
month) was kind enough to send me a patch for the mylmbackup
tool, which justifies a new release:
Attached is a patch file for mylvmbackup that adds the ability to use
lvm version 2 and perform innodb recovery on the snapshot prior to
creating a tar ball. The option is named --innodb-recover.
I've also fixed a bug with default value handling for command line
options. In version 0.4 if a config file was specified default values
in the script were all changed to blank. This means that the config
file had to supply values for every variable instead of just the
values that need to be changed from default.
