Hi

 I have a batch DOS where i put this
"%mysqldir%\bin\mysqldump" --user=%dbuser% --password=%dbpass% database > "%bkupdir%\%fn%_backup.sql"

It works and the file .sql is created with the data. Is it possible to have any output once the mysqldump is finished, something like 8 tables backup, 60 MB or more over if there is an error .


Thanks.

Try using the --verbose , --show-progress-size

http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=44071

Errors should show by default. You can log those to a file using --log-error=file_name

I have this error when I run :

"%mysqldir%\bin\mysqldump" --user=%dbuser% --password=%dbpass% database > "%bkupdir%\%fn%_database.sql" --show-progress-size=1500  --verbose >out.sql --log-error=errordata.txt

mysqldump: unknown variable 'show-progress-size=1500'

Also, inside my batch , i've changed the command like this :

"%mysqldir%\bin\mysqldump" --user=%dbuser% --password=%dbpass% --verbose >out.sql database >"%bkupdir%\%fn%_data.sql"  
The output is not created but my data dump file is created .

The --verbose from MySQL doesn't have an option to output to file that I know of, so what I would do (tested to work) is to redirect DOS output which is where the results of --verbose is being displayed/output.

Note the 2>{output.log} portion AND, no, the 2 is not a type-o. :)
What will also work is 1>{output.log} 2>&1 << this will pipe the standard output to file path specified and the 2>&1 will redirect standard error to same file as standard output.  I found with mysqldump --verbose that the standard error is what is utilized, but the second example probably your best method to use if going to add other options to try to get more detail although I am not sure which other may be helpful to you than the --verbose ... just matters what all you need.

Hope that helps!
mysqldump.exe --user={username} --password={password} --verbose --result-file={output.sql} database 2>{output.log}

By the way, I like to use this format:

mysqldump -u root -p

This way, I never have to pass or store password in clear text as the command will prompt you on the next line and will use the * (hidden) entry format.  Just a tidbit if you were not already aware.
