This section documents changes and bug fixes that have been applied in MySQL Enterprise Backup, version 3.5.2.
Functionality Added or Changed
A call to
posix_fadvise()can be used to reduce the flush cycle of the operating system cache and improve backup performance. This option is set on by default.
The combined InnoDB and MyISAM backup functionality of the
innobackupcommand is now available on Windows systems. The former Perl script is rewritten in C/C++ as the
mysqlbackupcommand. This release continues to include the
innobackupcommand, which may be deprecated by the next release. There are also some changes to the syntax as specified in the manual.
Backup history and progress information is logged to the
mysql.backup_progresstables, so that it can be used by the MySQL Enterprise Monitor product and other tools to easily monitor backup operations. For the details of the backup history table, see Chapter 7, Troubleshooting for MySQL Enterprise Backup.
The apply-log step for an incremental backup would fail if the
datadirvalues specified in the configuration file were not the same. (Bug #57375)
