15.15.5. Backing up MySQL Enterprise Service Manager

If you want to backup the data stored within your MySQL Enterprise Service Manager, you can use any of the typical backup solutions, such as mysqldump, to save your data. All you need to backup the information is host name, user name and password details that were set during the installation of the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager.

You can locate this information by examining the contents of the configuration_report.txt file that was generated when MySQL Enterprise Service Manager was installed. A scample of the file is provided below:

MySQL Enterprise Monitor (Version 2.0.0.7088 : 20081031_152749_r7088)
Here are the settings you specified:
Application hostname and port: http://127.0.0.1:18080
Tomcat Ports: 18080 - 18443 (SSL)
MySQL Port : 13306
Repository Credentials (bundled MySQL):
---------------------------------------
service_manager/Password
Use the following command to login to the MySQL Enterprise Monitor database:
mysql -uservice_manager -pPassword -P13306 -h127.0.0.1

The last line provides the information about how to connect to the server using the standard mysql command line client.

All the MySQL Enterprise Monitor repository information, including your configuration, rule and historical data is stored within the mem database.

To backup this information using mysqldump you might use the following command:

shell> mysqldump --single-transaction »
-uservice_manager -pPassword -P13306 -h127.0.0.1 mem >mem.dump

The above command creates a file, mem.dump, containing all of the MySQL Enterprise Monitor data.

To ensure consistency in a recovery situation, you may also want to backup the agent configuration and metadata stored on each monitored MySQL server. To do this:

  • Backup the configuration files of each agent. You should keep a copy of the etc directory for each agent. This directory contains the main configuration file, mysql-monitor-agent.ini, and the configuration information for each server being monitored, which is stored within the etc/instances directory.

  • On each server being monitored, retain a copy of the mysql.inventory table, which contains the unique ID of the MySQL server.
