  • Disaster: LVM Performance in Snapshot Mode – MySQL Performance Blog – In many cases I speculate how things should work based on what they do and in number of cases this lead me forming too good impression about technology and when running in completely unanticipated bug or performance bottleneck. This is exactly the case with LVM
    Number of customers have reported the LVM gives very high penalty when snapshots are enabled (leave along if you try to run backup at this time) and so I decided to look into it.
  • Netexpertise » Mysql Ultra-Fast Backup with LVM – It is generally good practice to respect the two following points when backing up databases. The backup has to be:
    consistent
    fast
    Consistency is easily achieved putting a read lock on all tables beforehands. However, this isn’t always applied, and WILL definately lead to a database integrity problem at some stage.
    Once a lock has been set on the database, the backup has to be as quick as possible, all write instructions being held in the queue.

  • MySQL permissions for backup | OpenConcept Mobile Site – It's a really good idea to use a least-privilege approach to most system administration tasks, and especially automated ones. This post describes using a "read only" MySQL user to handle backing up MySQL databases.

    We use mysqldump to backup our databases on a regular basis, using scripts like this one

  • MuckNet » Blog Archive » MySQL Permissions for backup using mysqldump and/or ec2-consistent-snapshot – Using root for your MySQL backups is a bad idea boys and girls. You should dedicate a user to doing your backups. Below are a few options for setting up minimum permissions for your dedicated mysql backup user

  • Create a secure intranet/extranet with TikiWiki and SecurePass – Giuseppe Paternò – [...]
    In this market segment, there’s still a need for a secure corporate intranet with the need to exchange private information and files. Collaborative places, such as wikis, are perfect solutions to quickly achieve this goal without spending a fortune.
