This topic describes how to export data from MemSQL databases using
mysqldump, which you can use because MemSQL supports the same

mysqldump creates a .sql file
containing the queries necessary to recreate a database. You can run the
mysqldump against an instance of MemSQL or MySQL, so you can

$ mysqldump -h 127.0.0.1 -u root -P 3306 --all-databases > full_backup.sql
