Backing up full server instance using MySQL Enterprise Backup

Introduction:

MySQL Enterprise Backup(MEB) takes fast, consistent backups of MySQL server data, and helps in restoring the server to source server's data at the time of backup. But most of the times it is as much important to have same source server's state(server configuration like server global variables, plugins), as data. As backups become more frequent, server variables modified, plugins added or removed, it is very difficult to keep track of this changing server states for every backup. MEB 3.9.0 helps user in providing a complete backup so that the restored server can run with exactly the same state as that of the source server at the time of the backup.

MEB 3.9.0 performs full server instance backup,  which, on top of the log …

TokuMX Hot Backup – Part 3

Last week I described TokuDB’s new Hot Backup feature.  This week we are going to briefly discuss the same feature, but as it was added to TokuMX, our version of MongoDB.

Since the Hot Backup library is essentially a shim between MySQL and the Linux kernel, intercepting file system calls for the life of the process, it should be easy to add this to any other system, including TokuMX.  Indeed with our addition of transactions and logging to TokuMX we can gain a consistent backup of any data set at any time.

Unlike MySQL, where system tables use the non-transactional MyISAM storage engine, TokuMX uses internal (non-explicit) transactions for all meta-data changes and regular CRUD operations on BSON data.  This …

Skip Unused Pages with MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.9.0

Disclaimer
The views expressed on this blog are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of Oracle.

Introduction
There are database usage patterns, where tables grow big at times and many rows are deleted from them later. InnoDB does never shrink a table space. In these cases we can end up with big data files, which contain a lot of unused pages. It is a waste of disk- and I/O- resources to back them up.

Users have manifold requested that MySQL Enterprise Backup does not back up unused InnoDB data pages. Some want smaller backups, some want less I/O, some want shrinked table spaces.

MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.9.0 can help with smaller backups. The effect on I/O is not that remarkable. InnoDB data files must be expanded to their original size when they are restored. Backup cannot accomplish a shrinkage of InnoDB table spaces.

In the following I will try to explain, how …

  `ID` int(7) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `Name` char(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT '‘,
   PRIMARY KEY (`ID`) ) ENGINE=InnoDB;

Improved Backup Progress in MySQL Enterprise Backup(MEB) 3.8.2
MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.8.2 has been released!

MySQL Enterprise Backup v3.8.2, a maintenance release of online MySQL backup tool, is now available for download from My Oracle Support  (MOS) website as our latest GA release.  It will also be available via the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud in approximately 1-2 weeks. A brief summary of the changes in MySQL Enterprise Backup version 3.8.2 is given below.


  A. Functionality Added or Changed: 

  • MySQL Enterprise Backup has a new --on-disk-full command line option. mysqlbackup could hang when the disk became full, rather than detecting the low space condition. mysqlbackup now monitors disk space when running backup commands, and users can now specify the action to take at a disk-full condition with the --on-disk-full option.
