Perform a Block-Level Backup for MySQL Databases

You can perform any one of the block-level backup operations for MySQL databases:


  • When you select a native engine for snapshots, you cannot select a proxy for backup copy.
  • For Logical Volume Managers (LVM) or physical volume partitions, an inline backup copy runs automatically on a subclient after the block-level backup operation is complete. For hardware arrays, you can run an inline backup copy or an offline backup copy on a subclient.
  • Monitor your snapshot volume regularly to ensure that it is not 100% full. When you run a native engine snap backup job, the snapshot that is created might be corrupted if your snap volume is full.
