mydump is causing issues with php-fpm
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I've correlated the time between all the php-fpm childs being used and my dumper running on db101.

We need to change I think to lessen the impact (surely there's a way that doesn't cause a site to go down?). I think maybe mysqldump --single-transaction --routines --triggers ?

Suggestions welcome but the way it is is currently the best option.

We did a lot of testing on mydumper v mysqldump and mydumper gave the best results in terms of performance and impact.

This was actually the major reason we didn't have backups for so long - this performance problem.

What probably doesn't help is all db servers take backups at the same time. I suggest we stagger these a bit more and then watch the next impact.
