LVM backup script

The script snapshots the volume, exports point in time snapshot to the encrypted file, archives it to save space and applies the retention on backup destination folder. Also CPU usage of gzip or dd process can be controlled by cpulimit tool.


## Fill in the variables below.
## Volume Group Name
## Logical Volumes within VG
lvstobackup="LV1 LV2 ... LV3"
## Prefix for snapshots.
## Backup key file.
## Backup destination.

# Backup script start.
log="$(date +"%F_%H-%M") - Backup script started.\n"
log+="$(date +"%F_%H-%M") - Checking if cpulimit process is running.\n"
## Below "if fi" can be uncommented if you need to limit cpu usage of gzip process. cpulimit tool must be installed.
#log+="$(date +"%F_%H-%M") - Checking if cpulimit process is running.\n"
#if pgrep cpulimit > /dev/null
#log+="$(date +"%F_%H-%M") - cpulimit process is running - PID $(pgrep cpulimit).\n"
#log+="$(date +"%F_%H-%M") - cpulimit process is not running. Starting.\n"
#cpulimit --exe /bin/gzip --limit 50 -b
#log+="$(date +"%F_%H-%M") - cpulimit process started - PID $(pgrep cpulimit).\n"
## Sets variable to track total amount of backup data.
## Sets variable to track script warnings.
## Starting firs loop to create snapshots for specified Logical Volumes.
## It checks if the same snapshot exists (from previous backup). Removes it and re-creates the new one.

## Also gzip can be changed to --best or --fast depending on performance.

## Removes the snapshot. Below one can be commented if you need to keep the snapshot until next script run.
## Make sure "-L10G" is enough for your LV's.
lvremove $snapfull -f
## Apply a retention to the backup destination.
## In example below it removes all data in destination folder older than 7 days.
log+="$(date +"%F_%H-%M") - Removing all files in '$backuppath' older than 7 days.\n"
find $backuppath -mtime +7 -type f -delete
## Uncomment if you are using cpulimit in the script.
#log+="$(date +"%F_%H-%M") - Killing CPU limit process.\n"
#pkill cpulimit
## Below lines will create a log file in a destination folder.
## It will include the information about total size transferred as well as warning value.
log+="$(date +"%F_%H-%M") - Backup script ended. Warning code = $warning. Total transfered (MB) = $totaltransferred.\n"
