init.d file for mydumper

Asked by Pavel Stratil on 2011-11-04


I ran into issues with the daemon mode when trying to write an init file for it. Is there a way to let mydumper create its pid file? Also is there a shutdown command for the daemon with the given pid?

Thanks, Pavel

Hi Pavel,

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

That is a great question, I have filed a bug report so that I can make this happen.

cool thanks :) I've packaged mydumper for Gentoo, so for now it will go into tree once reviewed without init scripts, once resolved here, I'll just write some ...

I ran into the same issue. I have created a simple initscript (on a CentOS 6 machine) that does not check a pidfile so simply kills the process named "mydumper".

# mydumper
# chkconfig: - 65 35
# description: Start the mydumper daemon
# processname: mydumper

# Source function library.
. /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions

args="-D -c -o ~/mysql_exports"

start() {
  echo -n $"Starting $name: "
  daemon --user $user $cmd $args

stop() {
  echo -n $"Stopping $name: "
  killproc $name

case $1 in
    echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart}"
    exit 1

Can you help with this problem?
