I am trying to use mysqldump to take regular backup of mysql database. We have migrated to centos 6.6 but still use mysql5.0 for our application.
I am trying to take a dump by issuing command
MYSQLDUMP --user=root --password=’****’ --host=localhost --verbose --master-data=2 --flush-logs --all-databases > $DUMPFILE
It runs for 8 hours but the statements on the dump file are
– MySQL dump 10.11
– Host: localhost Database:
– Server version 5.0.92-50-log

/!40103 SET TIME_ZONE=@OLD_TIME_ZONE */;
/*!40101 SET SQL_MODE=@OLD_SQL_MODE /;

I have a total of 17 database but only get information_schema database dumped.
I can see that whenever I issue the dump command, a sleep is introduced for 8 hrs and when it finishes the dump command also exits.
Want to understand if the dump command has any issue or the options given while taking the dump sends it into sleep.
The above command works well and dump generated on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3
Any help for my understanding would be appreciated.
