Backup Cookbook

Build Status

This cookbook automates deploying the backup gem and the configuration of any models you may want. With a little work you can backup everything using this cookbook as the framework.

Requirements

packages

  • ruby - ruby is required for the backup gem to be installed. > Note Currently Chef13 ships Ruby 2.4 in it's Omnnibus which is not compatable with the Backup gem currently
  • libxml2-dev
  • libxslt1-dev

Resources and Providers

This cookbook provides three resources and corresponding providers.

install.rb

Install or Remove the backup gem with this resource.

Actions:

  • install - installs the backup gem
  • remove - removes the backup gem

generate_config.rb

Generate a configuration file for the backup gem with this resource.

Usage

This cookbook is intended to be a framework to help backup your systems. Some examples below:

MongoDB

package "ruby-full"
backup_install node.name
backup_generate_config node.name
gem_package "fog" do
  version "~> 1.4.0"
end
backup_generate_model "mongodb" do
  description "Our shard"
  backup_type "database"
  database_type "MongoDB"
  split_into_chunks_of 2048
  store_with({"engine" => "S3", "settings" => { "s3.access_key_id" => "example", "s3.secret_access_key" => "sample", "s3.region" => "us-east-1", "s3.bucket" => "sample", "s3.path" => "/", "s3.keep" => 10 } } )
  options({"db.host" => "\"localhost\"", "db.lock" => true})
  mailto "some@example.com"
  cron_path "/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin"
  tmp_path "/mnt/backups"
  cron_log "/var/log/backups.log"
  action :backup
end

PostgreSQL

package "ruby-full"
backup_install node.name
backup_generate_config node.name
gem_package "fog" do
  version "~> 1.4.0"
end
backup_generate_model "pg" do
  description "backup of postgres"
  backup_type "database"
  database_type "PostgreSQL"
  split_into_chunks_of 2048
  store_with({"engine" => "S3", "settings" => { "s3.access_key_id" => "sample", "s3.secret_access_key" => "sample", "s3.region" => "us-east-1", "s3.bucket" => "sample", "s3.path" => "/", "s3.keep" => 10 } } )
  options({"db.name" => "\"postgres\"", "db.username" => "\"postgres\"", "db.password" => "\"somepassword\"", "db.host" => "\"localhost\"", "db.additional_options" => "[\" --format custom \"]"})
  mailto "sample@example.com"
  action :backup
end

Archiving files to S3

package "ruby-full"
backup_install node.name
backup_generate_config node.name
gem_package "fog" do
  version "~> 1.4.0"
end
backup_generate_model "home" do
  description "backup of /home"
  backup_type "archive"
  split_into_chunks_of 250
  store_with({"engine" => "S3", "settings" => { "s3.access_key_id" => "sample", "s3.secret_access_key" => "sample", "s3.region" => "us-east-1", "s3.bucket" => "sample", "s3.path" => "/", "s3.keep" => 10 } } )
  options({"add" => ["/home/","/root/"], "exclude" => ["/home/tmp"], "tar_options" => "-p"})
  mailto "sample@example.com"
  action :backup
end

Notifications

package "ruby-full"
backup_generate_model "archive_attribute_test" do
  description "backup of /etc using additional attributes"
  backup_type "archive"
  split_into_chunks_of 250
  store_with({"engine" => "Local", "settings" => { "local.keep" => 5, "local.path" => "/tmp" } })
  options({"add" => ["/home/","/etc/"], "exclude" => ["/etc/init"], "tar_options" => "-p"})
  mailto "sample@example.com"
  action :backup
  notify_by({"method" => "Campfire", "settings" => {"campfire.on_success" => "true", "campfire.on_warning" => "true", "campfire.on_failure" => "true", "campfire.api_token" => "token", "campfire.subdomain" => "domain", "campfire.room_id" => '34' }})
  gem_bin_dir "/usr/local/bin"
  cron_path "/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/opt/chef/embedded/bin"
  cron_log "/var/log/backups.log"
  tmp_path "/opt/tmp/backups"
end

Syncers

package "ruby-full"
backup_generate_model "sync_my_docs" do
  description  "Backup with RSync::Pull"
  action :backup
  backup_type "syncer"
  gem_bin_dir "/opt/chef/embedded/bin"
  options "add" => ["/home/username/documents", "/home/username/works"],
          "exclude" => ["tmp"]
  sync_with "syncer" => "RSync::Pull",
            "settings" => { "syncer.path" => "/opt/backup/syncs",
                            "syncer.mode" => :ssh,
                            "syncer.additional_ssh_options" => "-i /home/username/.ssh/id_rsa",
                            "syncer.host" => "192.168.0.42",
                            "syncer.ssh_user" => "username" }
end

It is possible to load the settings in an role or an data bag or leave the settings in a recipe.
