Re: Need help with a backup plan

Your mockery of my measly 100MB zipped backup is actually quite comforting :) I'll look in other threads too, but it sounds like 2.2M rows isn't a scary number?

So in thinking about this some more, I began wondering if there isn't some type of backup process somewhere for mySQL that can do either mysqldump, or SELECT INTO ... but do it in chunks, somewhat slowly? For example, if you had 1000 rows in a table, it could use SELECT INTO to grab 100 rows at a time, then pause, do that again some amount of time later on the next 100, etc. Does something like that exist?

One thing for sure I'm going to do, on the application code side which I understand a lot better, is make some changes to the retry-on-failure logic, which I need to do anyway, and give whatever backup process I end up with a little more breathing room.

Thanks for the comments,
