mysqldump Backup To More Than One File

Hi

We currently use mysqldump to dump all our db's in quick mode to one
file, backup.sql. This file has come quite large.

mysqldump -Aq -u root > /MySQL/backup/backup.sql

I would now like to split the mysqldump so that the output comprises
of several files of less than 2 gigabytes each. Does anyone know the
mysqldump options that could be used to do this? Or with using the >
out command?

Many thanks :)

Thiko!

Read the documentation or google "mysql backup compression". I seem to
recall that there is some compression functionality somewhere in some backup
process. This functionality may exist in some third-party software.
