How to backup remote redis instance

We wrote a python scripts to control redis backup work.

Three Steps to do this work:

1. Create meta database to store which redis instance needs to backup

2. Use scripts to connect to these redis instances with “–rdb” command (remote backup command)

3. Estimate which redis server should be transfered (only slave role redis will be transfered, wait minutes if a bgsave is running)

Backup Scripts: Redis_remote.py

Linux tools part 11 – Monitoring specified file-IO

We could use inotify-tools to monitor file or directory IO state

yum install inotify-tools

#inotifywait -m /storage/sas/mysql3306/data/diablo_im/#sql-ib4747-2643139248.ibd

Setting up watches.

/storage/sas/mysql3306/data/diablo_im/#sql-ib4747-2643139248.ibd MODIFY

/storage/sas/mysql3306/data/diablo_im/#sql-ib4747-2643139248.ibd MODIFY            
/storage/sas/mysql3306/data/diablo_im/#sql-ib4747-2643139248.ibd MODIFY   

this means mysqld process is writing file #sql-ib4747-2643139248.ibd now

we could add -r option to monitor directory IO state

#inotifywait -m -r /storage/sas/mysql3306/data/diablo_im/
Setting up watches. Beware: since -r was given, this may take a while!
