As it has been mentioned in a few posts by myself, I am looking to upgrade the hardware that my kit runs on. In my research I have found that I would be best using phpfina as this will be much easier to schedule a backup, as the mysql one is taking about an hour with the compression.
it is a hot backup that I am doing, and so I have no data loss, using mysqldump I have a 15 minute window of dataloss, which while not being the end of the world, means I do have a gap in my data.
I believe that phpfina will get around this.
Is there an easy way to convert all my existing mysql feeds over, I have read Moving from mySQL to PHPFINA, but this does not seem to give me the results I’m looking for.
I have had a play with the scripts that are in the useful scripts/convertdata/archive and the sql to phptimestore looked promising to start off with, but this could not find any suitable feeds.
Any ideas, or do I just start a new feed in phpfina and “archive” the old away?
