【Encountered Problem】
Currently using mydumper to export production database data, but the default export data format is SQL. Is it possible to directly export to CSV format? I checked the help, and it seems not supported. Is there any other good conversion method?

You can use Dumpling, it supports CSV format.

It is recommended to use Dumpling. You can export CSV by specifying --filetype csv, and it supports more optimizations specific to TiDB. 使用 Dumpling 导出数据 | PingCAP 文档中心

The above is the command I used for backup, and it can successfully back up.

mydumper probably does not support CSV format, you can try setting parameters for dumping.
