Analyze all tables in a mysql database from the command line (bash)
# To avoid doing things like putting your mysql password on the cli which is not secure
# Use mysql config editor
for table in $(mysql --login-path=mylogins -D database_name -Bse "show tables");
do mysql --login-path=mylogins -D database_name -Bse "analyze table $table";

Backup all databases on a mysql server excluding information/performance_schema and including UDFs/stored procedures. Most useful scheduling this on a slave db.
# No username or passwords in this script, you should use mysql_config_editor
# to store it securely. The login-path in this script is set to "local-backup" so when you create
# your .mylogin.cnf with the mysql-config-editor make sure it is set the same
# See
# An example to create your config for a mysql user "backup":
# shell> sudo mysql_config_editor set --login-path=local-backup --host=localhost --user=backup --password
# The backup user in the mysql server needs these privileges: SELECT, RELOAD, SHOW DATABASES, REPLICATION CLIENT

Using mysqldump for backups on a slave. Note the use of --master-data=2, this makes sure we get a global read lock and write out a comment in the sql file with the master log filename and current position. Now this backup is good for adding or bringing back a slave from scratch.
mysqldump -u [user] -p -xQce -R --master-data=2 --max-allowed-packet=1024M -B [db_name] | gzip > [db_name].sql.gz
