Hi guys.

I need to back up a mysql db on a Linux box. I've been searching around here and there and found a couple of options...

- a simple dump of the DB and then flat file backup
- ADSMPIPE
- Repostor's TSM for MySQL
- Zmanda
etc...

I'm i just looking into it too much? What do you guys do? Simple dump of the file? through scripts which then backs it up? Pre/postschedule commands? ADSMPIPE?

Thanks.

Stephan,

Don't look at this too much. All that is needed is a simple dump and backup routine, and you can use TSM for this.

thanks moon-buddy. I am guessing that the flat file dump of the mysqldump command will be bigger than the actual DBsize right? Does a sqldump take a long time? Can it be done anytime without impacting the environment? Can it be cancelled cleanly if something goes wrong?

thanks.

When I backup mysql, I do the mysqldump (which is pretty big), and then run it through bzip2, which packs it down nicely for storage on disk or backup.
