Module Backup-Mysqldp


Overview

This module provides support for creating compressed MySQL/MariaDB logical dumps. It is possible to use the command_opts argument to add extra options on the mysqldump command line. You can also provide the name of the compression program to use (such as gzip, bzip2 or xz) the default being xz (you must not put the path). Also you can provide extra arguments to be passed to the compression program using compress_opts. mysqldump and the compression program corresponding to the compression mode you want to use must be installed on the system for this module to work.
