How can I verify the up to the second backups are working?

Asked by Tim Philips

Hi There,

I downloaded and installed 0.5.1 and set it up in daemon mode and it was snapshotting fine but I couldn't verify that the up to the second backups (via the binary/logs) were working.

Is there anyone that can explain to me how this feature works?

Hi Tim,

I apologise for the delay, I have been on vacation.

Basically it will create two subdirectories inside the backup directory containing the snapshots (called 0 and 1) and a symlink pointing to the last good backup. It will also create a subdirectory containing the binary log files which it writes to disk as soon as it gets the data.

Using 'ls -l' you should be able to see the creation/update dates of these files. You should also find a log file in there which will show what mydumper is doing.

I hope this helps.

Can you help with this problem?
