ClusterControl Tips & Tricks: Customising Your Database BackUps

ClusterControl provides centralized backup management and it supports the standard mysqldump and Percona Xtrabackup backup methods. We believe the chosen command line arguments for the respective methods are optimal for most database workloads, and comply with the MySQL backup best practices. We are influenced by all the feedback we have received over the years, when working with DBAs and sysadmins. However, you might still want to customize your backup. This blog post shows you how to do this.
