MySQL Backup Best Practices

Tweet

Today is World Backup Day, so I thought I would use the opportunity to discuss some best practices and general considerations regarding backing up MySQL instances. While I focus on MySQL, several of these tips apply to backups in general.

Backup your data

Before heading into the gory details, let’s first take a look at the best practices at a high level:

  • Make sure you can restore your backups:
    • Document and script the restore procedures. Do you know the steps required to restore a full backup – or a single table?
    • Keep copies of the backups off-site. Do you have a copy of your backup if the data center becomes unavailable for example due to a fire?
    • Validate your …

Chose right SST method MariaDB Cluster 10.2

                In this blog post, I am going to explain an interesting issue which I faced in one of our client project . Few weeks back , I got an requirement from our support client to construct a new MariaDB Galera Cluster ( 10.2.21 ) and an async slave with GTID. The Complete requirement is as below.

  • Need to construct the Galera cluster with 37 GB of data ( Using a given MySQL dump file )
  • Have to configure an asynchronous slave under the 3 node Galera cluster
  • The asynchronous slave was proposed with GTID to ease master node switchover.

So, as per the requirement the architecture will be,

It is very important for every DBA’s to backup their data frequently so that they can recover data if any problems occur such as Hardware failure, System crashes, Human mistakes. There are several ways to backup MySQL data.

Percona XtraBackup Now Supports Dump of InnoDB Buffer Pool

InnoDB keeps hot data in memory on its buffer named InnoDB Buffer Pool. For a long time, when a MySQL instance needed to bounce, this hot cached data was lost and the instance required a warm-up period to perform as well as it did before the service restart.

That is not the case anymore. Newer versions of MySQL/MariaDB allow users to save the state of this buffer by dumping tablespace ID’s and page ID’s to a file on disk that will be loaded automatically on startup, making the newly started server buffer pool as it was prior the restart.

Details about the MySQL implementation can be found at https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/innodb-preload-buffer-pool.html

With that in mind, Percona XtraBackup versions …

MySQL Master High Availability and Failover: more thoughts

Some months ago, Shlomi Noach published a series about Service Discovery.  In his posts, Shlomi describes many ways for an application to find the master.  He also gives detail on how these solutions cope with failing-over to a slave, including their integration with Orchestrator.

This is a great series, and I recommend its reading for everybody implementing master failover, with or without

Architecting reliable backup and recovery strategy


I have been managing multiple databases, mostly in Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL server, both on on-premise and cloud. We have faced a lot of challenging issues such as records deleted from a user table, backup file is corrupted, backup file is not compatible, backup files got deleted, backup storage is full and backup is running for long time, etc. When you are facing this issues for the first time, it is surprising to see new kind of issues every day and if you are not good in documentation, repetitive issues will keep occurring and we keep fixing rather than suctioning. If you are facing same challenges, then you need to focus on your backup and recovery strategy.


A well-designed backup and recovery strategy maximizes data availability and minimizes data loss without tolerating business requirement. In this post, we will discuss about the following topics:

  1. Recovery Time Objective (RTO)
