Hi all:
I am new to mysql...could some one clarify the below.
1.) Does OS backup tools backup MYSQL database with MYSQL running.
Or only way to backup MYSQL is to use MYSQL utilites as MYSQL dump or MYSQL hot backup.
2.)Is the MYSQL architecture simialar to sql/oracle where we have a translog file/redo log file .
So once restored from a backup do we need to apply additional logfiles to bring it point in time .

Please advise.
