Backup data to OpenStack Swift
This utility is used to backup data to OpenStack Swift. It provides a command interface and backup rotation. It depends on a simple client library called swiftsc.
$ pip install --user backup2swift or (venv)$ pip install backup2swift
Firstly setup configuration file. You may save the file name of your choice as setting. Example is as folloing:
[swift] auth_url: https://example.org/auth/v1.0 username: username password: password #ignore_verify_ssl_certification: True #timeout: 5.0 [backup] rotate_limit: 10 #[keystone] #tenant_id: tenant_id
The “auth_url” is swift authentication url, “username” and “password” are swift’s. If you need to ignore verification of SSL certification, append option as “ignore_verify_ssl_certification: True” to [swift] section. “rotate_limit” is limitation count of rotation for backup. If this value is 3, backup is as folloing;
backup target file name: example.txt
Firstly backup object is created as same name of backup target file (that is “example.txt”):
$ bu2sw -c bu2sw.conf -p example.txt $ bu2sw -c bu2sw.conf -l example.txt
Secondly backup object is created as same name of backup target file, and first backup object is renamed added timestamp as “example.txt_YYYYMMDD-hhmmss”.:
$ bu2sw -c bu2sw.conf -p example.txt $ bu2sw -c bu2sw.conf -l example.txt example.txt_20130510-113930
Backup objects named with timestamp are created until “rotate_limit” value. Old backup object is remove when execute backup over limitation.:
$ bu2sw -c bu2sw.conf -p example.txt $ bu2sw -c bu2sw.conf -l example.txt example.txt_20130510-113930 example.txt_20130510-113941 example.txt_20130510-113953 $ bu2sw -c bu2sw.conf -p example.txt $ bu2sw -c bu2sw.conf -l example.txt example.txt_20130510-113941 example.txt_20130510-113953 example.txt_20130510-114110
