Package: mydumper (0.9.1-adr1~jessie)

High-performance MySQL backup tool

Mydumper (aka. MySQL Data Dumper) is a high-performance multi-threaded backup (and restore) toolset for MySQL and Drizzle. The main developers originally worked as Support Engineers at MySQL (one has moved to Facebook and another to SkySQL) and this is how they would envisage mysqldump based on years of user feedback.

Mydumper features

Lightweight C source Up to 10x faster dumps compared to mysqldump Consistent snapshots for transactional and non-transactional tables File compression on-the-fly Binary log dumps Multi-threaded restore utility Daemon mode for timed snapshots and continuous binary logs

Mydumper is still under active development but is well tested/used in production on some large installations.
