1.2 The mysqlbackup Client

When using the MySQL Enterprise Backup product, you primarily work with the mysqlbackup client. Use it to perform different types of backup and restore operations, as well as tasks that are otherwise performed by backup scripts, such as creating a timestamped subdirectory for each backup, compressing the backup data, and packing the backup data into a single file for easy transfer to another server.

For information about the various mysqlbackup commands and command-line options, see Part III, “mysqlbackup Command Reference”.
