The new cloud backup option of MySQL Enterprise Backup
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.10 support backups to the cloud. The only supported cloud service is Amazon S3.

When the cloud destination is used mysqlbackup will upload the backup as an image file.

You can specify all options on the commandline:
mysqlbackup --cloud-service=s3 --cloud-aws-region=eu-west-1 \
--cloud-access-key-id=AKIAJLGCPXEGVHCQD27B \
--cloud-secret-access-key=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 \
--cloud-bucket=meb_myserver --cloud-object-key=firstbackup --cloud-trace=0 \
--backup-dir=/tmp/firstbackup --backup-image=- --with-timestamp backup-to-image

But you can also put the settings in the my.cnf
[mysqlbackup_cloud]
cloud-service=s3
cloud-aws-region=eu-west-1
cloud-access-key-id=AKIAJLGCPXEGVHCQD27B

Which Compression Tool Should I Use for my Database Backups? (Part I: Compression)
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This week we are talking about size, which is a subject that should matter to any system administrator in charge of the backup system of any project, and in particular database backups.

I sometimes get questions about what should be the best compression tool to apply during a particular backup system: gzip? bzip2? any other?

The testing environment

In order to test several formats and tools, I created a .csv file (comma-separated values) that was 3,700,635,579 bytes in size by transforming a recent dump of all the OpenStreetMap nodes of the European portion of Spain. It had a total of 46,741,126 rows and looked like this:

Upgrade MySQL to a new version with a fresh installation & use shell scripts and mysqldump to reload your data
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There are several ways to upgrade MySQL (http://mysql.com). In this post, we will use a combination of shell scripts and the mysqldump application to export our MySQL (http://mysql.com) data, and then re-import it back into the upgraded version of MySQL (http://mysql.com).

In this example, we will be doing a minor version upgrade. We will be going from 5.6.17 to 5.6.19. This method may not work if you are upgrading from one major release to another – from 5.1 to 5.5, or 5.5 to 5.6. You will want to check each version and review the new features/functions and also what features/functions have been deprecated. We are also assuming that no one will be using the database during the time it takes

Single database backup and restore with MEB
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down
I was recently asked about if MySQL Enterprise Backup would be able to restore single databases.

My initial answer was that this was complicated, but might be doable with the Transportable Table Space (TTS) option.

But first let's go back to the basics. A common way of working with mysqldump is to get a list of databases and then loop through the databases and dump the data and schema to a SQL file. But both backups and restores will take a lot of time if the size of the database grows. And it's a luke-warm backup at best instead of a hot backup. So that's why we have MySQL Enterprise Backup.

MySQL Enterprise Backup allows you to make a hot backup of InnoDB tables by copying the datafiles while watching the InnoDB redo log files.

On disk the data from the InnoDB storage engine consists of a system tablespace (one of more

MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.10: Teasing compression.
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Ok, so I wanted to look into the new compression options of MEB 3.10.

And I would like to share my tests with you. Remember, they’re just this, tests, so please feel free to copy n paste and obtain your own results and conclusions, and should I say it, baselines, in order to compare future behaviour, on your own system.

An Oracle Linux 6.3 virtual machine with 3Gb RAM, 2 virtual threads, on a 1x quad core, windows laptop. Not pretty, but hey.

So, these tests are solely about backup. I’ll do restore when I get some *more* time.

 

First up, lets compare like with like, i.e. MEB version 3.9 & 3.10:

Let’s make this interesting, hence, want to use as much resources available as possible, read, write, process threads and number of buffers.

mysqlbackup --user=root --password=oracle

–use-tts backup & restore
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In addition to my recent post, I just had to go into using the –use-tts for specific tables and selective backup sets.

As all my schemas were employeesn, I thought it would be a good idea to run:

mysqlbackup -uroot --socket=/tmp/mysql.sock --backup-dir=/home/mysql/MEB/restore \
--with-timestamp --use-tts --include=employees* backup

as I want all the tables. If I only wanted a specific table, say ‘salaries’ I could have done:

mysqlbackup -uroot --socket=/tmp/mysql.sock --backup-dir=/home/mysql/MEB/restore \
--with-timestamp --use-tts --include=employees*\.*salaries backup

and backup just the ‘salaries’ tables but from all the employeesn databases.

then.. be a mean little dba:

drop database employees;
drop database employees10;
drop database

MySQL Enterprise Backup: parallel config & backup n restore results.
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this post I go into some performance metrics and time spent on using MySQL Enterprise Backup instead of mysqldump, and seeing how far I could go with some parallel configuration.

Setup:

It’s on an old laptop:

–Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 32bit Intel Pentium M 1.86Ghz, 2Gb –Source disk:  internal 80Gb ATA ST9808211A –Destination:  external 1Tb SAMSUNG HD103SI –MySQL Enterprise Edition 5.6.15 –MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.9.0 –Employees sample database duplicated via MySQL Utilities 1.3.6 (on Win7 PC) to generate a ~5Gb MySQL Server. And to simulate data size, I used the MySQL Utilities:
mysqldbcopy --source=root:pass@host:3356 --destination=root:pass@host:3356 employees:employees1 \
employees:employees2 employees:employees3 employees:employees4 ...
