I'm liiking for a shell script that I can run from cron to do a monthly archive of my mysql snort database.
Does anybody know where I could find somthing like this?
Have you found anything interesting for that ?
I have not tried the following but it looks pretty interesting... mysqldumper
if anyone has any experience with this, please share... I'll be installing it within the next week or so...
I am not sure about this one. I have not used it, but I am leary of any application that doesn't list its license and mentions proprietary method of doing anything. Not that I mind propietary, just not sure due to the lack of an obvious license.
Have you tried archivePlus? It's a Perl script that does exactly what you're asking for. I mention it here in the event that someone else seaches the forums for this type of answer. You can obtain it at http://www.ntsug.org/downloads/archivePlus.tar.gz. Once installed you'll need to edit the acidPlus.config file. Instructions are in the README file.
