Enhanced Backup Tool

Overview

This is backup framework for creating flexible backup scripts.

Features

  1. Module for upload backups to Amazon Glacier and remove old Glacier backups.
  2. MySQL module support creating backup with mysqldump and InnoBackupEx.
  3. LVM module for snapshots.
  4. Full/Diff backups of files backups with rsync.
  5. Full/Diff backups of btrfs with btrfs send/receive.
  6. Full/Diff backups of any binary files or block devices with diff-dd.
  7. Full/Diff backups of Libvirt VM's.
  8. Full/Diff backups of Libvirt VM's with external snapshots (works with qcow, qcow2, and raw file block devices).
  9. Full/Diff backups of S3 buckets (beta, can work with Amazon S3, Ceph and other S3 storage)
  10. Predefined jobs for popular cases.

Install

  1. Install following dependency with your OS package manager:
    For CentOS:
    http://www.percona.com/downloads/percona-release/redhat/0.1-4/percona-release-0.1-4.noarch.rpm (Percona repo)
    libvirt-python
    python-pip
    rsync
    lvm2
    p7zip
    btrfs-progs
    pigz
    Percona-Server-client-57
    percona-xtrabackup-24
    For Debian/Ubuntu:
    https://repo.percona.com/apt/percona-release_0.1-4.$(lsb_release -sc)_all.deb (Percona repo)
    python-libvirt
    python-setuptools
    python-pip
    rsync
    lvm2
    p7zip
    btrfs-progs
    pigz
    Percona-Server-client-57
    percona-xtrabackup-24
  2. Install python package from pip:
    pip install ebt

Configure

Configuration files stored in /etc/ebt/ directory. File /etc/ebt/ebt.conf contain logging configuration.

File /etc/ebt/plans.py contains your backups jobs. Few examples of plans.py:

import ebt_jobs.btrfs


def btrfs_root_full():
    backup = ebt_jobs.btrfs.BTRFSBackupFull(source='/', snap_dir='/.snap', dest_dir='/mnt/backup', day_exp=None, store_last=1)
    backup.start()

def btrfs_root_diff():
    backup = ebt_jobs.btrfs.BTRFSBackupDiff(source='/', snap_dir='/.snap', dest_dir='/mnt/backup', day_exp=None, store_last=5)
    backup.start()

This example of using predefined job ebt_jobs.btrfs.BTRFSBackupDiff. You can see all jobs in ebt_jobs/ directory.

Next example. You can inheritance your own class from base class:

import ebt_jobs.btrfs
import ebt_system

class BTRFSBackupFullWithRsync(ebt_jobs.btrfs.BTRFSBackupFull):
    def _post_backup(self):
        ebt_system.popen(command="rsync /usr/bin/rsync {0} remote:/mnt/backup/archive/".format(self.dest), shell=True)

class BTRFSBackupDiffWithRsync(ebt_jobs.btrfs.BTRFSBackupDiff, BTRFSBackupFullWithRsync):
    pass

def btrfs_root_full():
    backup = BTRFSBackupFullWithRsync(source='/', snap_dir='/.snap', dest_dir='/mnt/backup', day_exp=None, store_last=1)
    backup.start()

def btrfs_root_diff():
    backup = BTRFSBackupDiffWithRsync(source='/', snap_dir='/.snap', dest_dir='/mnt/backup', day_exp=None, store_last=5)
    backup.start()

You can write your own jobs from primitives that can be found in ebt_* dirs.

EBT cli Usage

root ยป ebt --help
usage: ebt [-h] [-j JOBS [JOBS ...]] [-p PLAN] [-c CONFIG] [-v]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -j JOBS [JOBS ...], --jobs JOBS [JOBS ...]
                        List of jobs to run
  -p PLAN, --plan PLAN  Custom path to plans file
  -c CONFIG, --config CONFIG
                        Custom path to config file
  -v, --version         Display program version and exit

Where -j or --jobs is the functions names from your plans.py file. Example: ebt -j btrfs_root_full btrfs_root_diff If you specified few jobs they will be executed in sequential order.

Diff-dd cli Usage

You can use for restoring diff backups of Libvirt VM's or for creating diff backups from external scripts.

Backup examples:

ddd --if /backup/full_disk_copy.raw --df /dev/lvm/changed_disk_snapshot --of /backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd
ddd --if /backup/full_disk_copy.raw --df /dev/lvm/changed_disk_snapshot > /backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd
ddd --if /backup/full_disk_copy.raw --df /dev/lvm/changed_disk_snapshot | gzip > /backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd.gz
ddd --if <(zcat /backup/full_disk_copy.raw.gz) --df /dev/lvm/changed_disk_snapshot --of /backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd
zcat /backup/full_disk_copy.raw.gz | ddd --df /dev/lvm/changed_disk_snapshot --of /backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd
cat /dev/lvm/changed_disk_snapshot | ddd --if <(zcat /backup/full_disk_copy.raw.gz) --of /backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd
ddd --if <(ssh remotehost cat /backup/full_disk_copy.raw) --df <(ssh remote2host cat /dev/lvm/changed_disk_snapshot) | ssh remote3host dd of=/backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd

Restore examples:

ddd --mode restore --if /backup/full_disk_copy.raw --df /backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd --of /dev/lvm/disk
ddd --mode restore --if <(zcat /backup/full_disk_copy.raw.gz) --df <(zcat /backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd.gz) > /dev/lvm/disk
zcat /backup/full_disk_copy.raw.gz | ddd --mode restore --df <(ssh remotehost cat /backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd.gz) | ssh remote2host dd of=/dev/lvm/disk

Diff-dd API Usage

Backup:

import ebt_files
import gzip
iffd = gzip.open('/backup/full_disk_copy.raw.gz', 'rb')
dffd = open('/dev/lvm/changed_disk_snapshot', 'rb')
offd = gzip.open('/backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd', 'wb')

differ = ebt_files.ddd.CreateDiff(iffd=iffd, dffd=dffd, offd=offd, block_size=16384)
differ.start()

Restore:

import ebt_files
iffd = gzip.open('/backup/full_disk_copy.raw.gz', 'rb')
dffd = gzip.open('/backup/diff_disk_copy.ddd', 'rb')
offd = open('/dev/lvm/disk', 'wb')

differ_restore = ebt_files.ddd.RestoreDiff(iffd=iffd, dffd=dffd, offd=offd, block_size=16384)
differ_restore.start()
