  • I've given some thought to how to reload data quickly after a test. In most cases, piping mysqldump output through the mysql shell is fast enough. When there's too much data for that, LOAD DATA INFILE is very fast and can be done for the whole database using mk-parallel-dump and mk-parallel-restore. It's also possible keep a test database and just copy all the tables from it when you want to restore with CREATE TABLE...LIKE and INSERT...SELECT FROM. The fastest way though is probably to use LVM snapshots. The copy-on-write nature of LVM makes restore operations very fast.
