A python command line tool that simplify MongoDB backup (mongodump/mongorestore) to Amazon S3.

Project description

A python command line tool that simplify MongoDB backup (mongodump/mongorestore) to Amazon S3.

Stdout/stderr is displayed for each command so if something goes wrong, you can see it immediately.

You can download and restore generated backups yourself without mo2s3 (just download, untar and mongorestore).

Requirements

It makes use of argparse for parsing arguments, mongodump/mongorestore/tar with envoy and boto to upload/download to S3.

  • Envoy python subprocesses for humans
  • Boto to interact with AWS S3
  • Argparse for parsing command line arguments

Installation

$ pip install mo2s3

You can configure your AWS/MongoDB credentials with mo2s3:

$ mo2s3 configure

And you can also edit ~/.mo2s3.cfg.

Usage

Basic usage, mo2s3 -h to show the help.

List bucket files

$ mo2s3 list

Perform Backup

$ mo2s3 backup

$ mo2s3 backup –db mydb

Restore

$ mo2s3 restore –filename mongodump_20120610235933.tgz

$ mo2s3 restore –host anotherhost.com:27017 –db mydb –filename mongodump_mydb_20120611150815.tgz

Delete backup

$ mo2s3 delete –filename mongodump_20120610235933.tgz

Delete all backups

$ mo2s3 drop

How It Works

Here is how a backup is performed:

  1. Run mongodump on the current directory
  2. Create tgz of the dump with tar
  3. Upload to S3 with boto
  4. Delete every generated file

And to restore:

  1. Download archive from S3
  2. Untar to current directory
  3. Mongorestore the dump
  4. Delete every downloaded file
