Description

This module installs Percona xtrabackup / innobackupx and schedules automated backups of MySQL, MariaDB, Percona-Server and other MySQL derivitives.

Setup

What xtrabackup affects

  • Percona repository
  • xtrabackup / innobackupx installations
  • cronjob for scheduling backups / retention period

Beginning with xtrabackup

Basic install with required paramaters and default settings.

class { ::xtrabackup:
  backup_dir => '/mnt/backup/', 
  mysql_user => 'backup_user',
  mysql_pass => 'backup_password'
}

Usage

All interactions with the xtrabackup module can be performed through the main ::xtrabackup class.

Minimal installation using default settings:

class { ::xtrabackup:
  backup_dir => '/mnt/backup/', 
  mysql_user => 'backup_user',
  mysql_pass => 'backup_password'
}

Install xtrabackup version 2.3.4-1.el7 and the backup script but don't schedule cronjob.

class { ::xtrabackup:
  package_version => '2.3.4-1.el7',
  enable_cron     => false,
  backup_dir      => '/mnt/backup/', 
  mysql_user      => 'backup_user',
  mysql_pass      => 'backup_password'
}

Schedule backup for weekly Friday night's at 11PM, set the backup retention to 30 days, and don't install the xtrabackup packages, and don't install the Percona repo:

class { ::xtrabackup:
  backup_retention       => '30',
  cron_hour              => '22',
  cron_weekday           => '5',
  install_xtrabackup_bin => false,
  manage_repo            => false,
  backup_dir             => '/mnt/backup/', 
  mysql_user             => 'backup_user',
  mysql_pass             => 'backup_password'
}

Schedule backup with custom xtrabackup options to use 2 threads and compress the output:

class { ::xtrabackup:
  xtrabackup_options => '--parallel=2 --compress',
  backup_dir         => '/mnt/backup/', 
  mysql_user         => 'backup_user',
  mysql_pass         => 'backup_password'
}

Schedule backup using innobackupx with custom options to save slave data:

class { ::xtrabackup:
  use_innobackupx     => true,
  innobackupx_options => '--slave-info',
  backup_dir          => '/mnt/backup/', 
  mysql_user          => 'backup_user',
  mysql_pass          => 'backup_password'
}
