Hi I am trying to schedule the mysqldump backups of all databases using the event scheduler.
SET GLOBAL event_scheduler = ON;
delimiter |
CREATE EVENT bkuptest
ON SCHEDULE EVERY 1 HOUR
DO BEGIN
mysqldump --uroot --ppasswd --all-databases --events --result-file="/it/dba/mysqlbkup/eventschedulertestdev_mysql%datestr%%timestr%.sql";
END |

delimiter ;

I get the following error when i try to execute the script


ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '--user root --password --all-databases --events --result-file="/it/dms/h' at line 4



Can mysqldump be used in even scheduler i see only sqls can be used ?
what is the correct syntax?
Unfortunately I cannot use cron to schedule jobs.
