The Linux MEM installer will backup a previous setup to $M/backup, where M=/opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor by default. This only allows only for a single backup and does not make it explicit which version has been backed up.

How to repeat:
See above.

Suggested fix:
Please consider backing up to $M/backup/<version> so $M/backup/ where version is the version being backed up prior to an upgrade.

We can still clean out older versions but I've run some versions for some time and then not been absolutely sure which was the previously backed up version. This would make this information more obvious apart from providing the possibility of keeping more than one backup.
