comment Optimal way to make MySQL backups for fairly large databases (MyISAM / InnoDB)
My biggest hesitation was that it chewed up CPU for about 30 minutes as it completed (backing up a DB of about 35GB data), rendering the DB server only marginally functional -- certainly not something I'd likely to be running on a production master. I actually had already converted my remaining few MyISAM tables to InnoDB partially for the purposes of this. I think it'd probably be OK to run on a slave as long as it doesn't cause replication to fall substantially behind.
