–use-tts backup & restore

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 employees11;
..
..
drop database employees2;
drop database employees20;
drop database …

MySQL Enterprise Backup: parallel config & backup n restore results.

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 ... employees:employees18 \
employees:employees19 employees:employees20

MariaDB Database Disk snapshot backups on Windows

Using disk snapshots to perform MariaDB backups has become more and more common, but this seems to have been limited to Linux and Cloud environments. There seems that there has been a notion that Snapshots cannot be done on native Windows, the way we can do snapshots using LVM on Linux for example. This is actually False, if you use the NTFS filesystem snapshoting is built in and has been so for a long time, the base for it is the Volume Snapshot Service (VSS) which was introduced as far back as Windows XP.

Using Snapshots to backup on Linux or Windows works well, assuming that the storage engine you use can recover on startup, the backups created this was are physically consistent but not logically, but InnoDB will recover this. Also note that any warnings about using snapshots with MyISAM also applies to the mysql database, i.e. the database metadata. Usually though, this …

how MySQL engineering broke the backups

MySQL has exceptional track of record by introducing minor fixes that cause major breakages. Though usually I could blame naiveté of engineers, who did not really ever have to deal with production implications, but lately I can start sensing various business implications against open-source offerings.

As an original author of mydumper I really cannot get out of my mind that 5.5 and 5.6 metadata locking changes are there to screw with anyone who is building a backup solution using stable snapshot views of MySQL (for example, mysqldump –single-transaction, the golden standard of backing things up in MySQL world).

As seen in a bug #71017 (palindrome!) filed by my esteemed colleague Eric, newly introduced behaviors …

How to store MySQL innobackupex backups at Google Cloud Storage

In general, I chose Google Cloud Storage to store web sites MySQL backups due to its price and speed of upload/download in real time

I used the Google native tool – gsutil , innobackupex and some bash

in short : the /etc and local MySQL  backup

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 …
